NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! On Wednesday, five more buses from Texas arrived in New York City, making it the most buses to travel to the Big Apple in a single day.
The most recent buses to travel the route are the new ones. Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, has dispatched more than a thousand migrants to New York since August 5, according to his office.
To draw attention to the migrant problem hurting his state, Abbott started transferring migrants out of his state to liberal places like New York and Washington, D.C., thousands of miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams criticizes Texas Governor Greg Abbott after the arrival of the second bus of immigrants: THIS IS SICKENING.
The mayor “likes to praise himself on the back for embracing migrants with open arms to his sanctuary city, that is, until he actually has to follow through on those lofty promises,”
Abbott said in a Wednesday New York Post op-ed as she criticized Adams’ “hypocrisy.”
Abbott said that Adams “talked the talk” of being a sanctuary city that welcomed undocumented visitors to the Big Apple with open arms. “Speech is cheap. He wants to condemn anyone who is forcing him to follow such ill-advised policies when forced to do so.”
Abbott isn’t the only person who supports the stunt, as seen in
. Mayors and lawmakers in Texas have shrugged off objections from big cities, citing years of resolving the situation independently.
Mayor Javier Villalobos of McAllen, Texas, said Fox News, “You see New York, you see Washington kind of drowning with a few buses.” We used to receive over a thousand people each day.
According to Villalobos, “the city of McAllen was able to handle thousands of immigrants every day.” “I believe a few hundred will be okay,”
As more immigrant buses arrive close to the US Capitol, Texas keeps pressure on DC.
Adams threatened to take a busload of New Yorkers to Texas to door-knock and help remove Abbott from office for the “good of America” at a press conference after a previous bus of migrants arrived, and then he called for more federal funding to deal with the influx of migrants into the sanctuary city of the Big Apple.
When you consider what the governor is doing, this is horrible, Adams said.
