Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to accusations from NYC Mayor Eric Adams that he was a “madman” for sending migrants to sanctuary cities all over the country; “he could not last a week in Texas,” Abbott says.
“When I first heard that, I thought about Frank Sinatra singing ‘New York, New York’ when he sang ‘If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere.’ Well, [Adams] may have made it to be mayor of New York, but he could not last a week in Texas,” Abbott told Fox News.

Abbott said Adams’ complaints about several thousand migrants flooding all five boroughs – in part because of buses from the Lone Star State arriving regularly at Port Authority – the influx is dwarfed by the deluge Texas is dealing with thanks to President Biden’s open border policies.
He added that officials in blue states and cities are being exposed as hypocritical as they deal with the repercussions of their progressive politics.
“[It] is just outrageous he would make a comment like that… What’s maddening is the fact that in New York and Chicago and D.C. and L.A. and other places, they put out policies proclaiming that they’re sanctuary cities, and they love to promote these liberal ideologies until they have to actually live up and apply them as clear that the policies of sanctuary cities,” Abbott said. “And letting everybody live for free simply [does] not work.”
