During an interview with Fox News over the weekend, Texas Governor Greg Abbott unloaded on President Biden and New York City Mayor Eric Adams for fueling the crisis at the southern border.

“The person who is actually using illegal immigrants as political pawns is Joe Biden,” Abbott said. “Joe Biden has created this open border policy that has allowed illegal immigrants into our country to appeal to and to appease the far leftists in the Democrat Party that people like [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez in hopes of trying to win their support while at the same time destroying the country that he’s in charge of. He is the commander-in-chief in charge of national security for our country. Our country is being invaded in ways that put our country at risk because of the political games that Joe Biden has played.”

“And Mayor Adams is just aiding and abetting that by having a sanctuary city status, welcoming in anybody from across the world to live there or stay there in New York City on the bill of New York City,” he continued. “And what Mayor Adams needs to do, he needs to stop talking boldly about illegal immigration and the migrants that Texas is sending there. And he needs to step up and do his own job because look at the dangers in New York City under his watch. You have a police officer who is killed. You have the train system in New York, which is treacherous for travelers. You got police officers attacked in Times Square by illegal immigrants.”

Abbott said that Adams needed to “step up and do his job as mayor and protect the people of his community as opposed to gimmicks about what’s going on on the border. ”
