According to a report from Fox News, three more migrant buses arrived in the Big APple Wednesday morning, much to the chagrin of New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “The buses arrived just days after New York City Mayor Eric Adams criticized Texas Gov. Greg Abbott during a press conference on Sunday regarding the mass transit of migrant groups out of Texas and into New York,” Fox reports.
From Fox News:
While awaiting the arrival of the three new buses early Wednesday, NYC’s Office of Immigrant Affairs Commissioner Manuel Castro accused a “morally corrupt” Abbott of using the bussing of migrants to the Big Apple as a “political ploy” aimed to “foment anti-immigrant sentiment.”
“You cannot take the words of Governor Abbott seriously. He’s demonstrated his moral character with these actions, and they’re disgusting. We do know that people are arriving with a great amount of needs because of the treatment they’ve received in the state of Texas,” Castro said outside The New York Times building in Manhattan. “Again, this must be condemned. This must be looked into. And our federal government will… take steps to hold them accountable.”
“No one is blaming them, but we are condemning this Governor Abbott’s treatment,” he said. “If he wanted to help, he would be bussing them to the actual locations that they need to… meet, to be transported to. But he’s not. He’s transporting people to Washington, D.C. and to New York City without any communication with us, with the intent of forcing as much harm as possible to our cities.”

Abbott says he will continue to send buses until Biden does his Constitutional duty and protects the border.
The federal government's refusal to address the border crisis is what's truly "horrific."
Texas will send buses to Washington D.C. & New York City until Biden does his constitutional duty & secures our border.https://t.co/yhmlaF74UQ
