In a news conference Sunday at the Port Authority where he greeted an incoming bus of about 40 migrants — only 14 of whom disembarked in the Big Apple — New York City Mayor Eric Adams called what Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is doing “horrific.”
“This is horrific when you think about what the governor is doing,” Adams said. “We’re finding that some of the families are on the bus that wanted to go to other locations, and they were not allowed to do so. They were forced on the bus with the understanding that they were going to other locations that they wanted to go to, and when they tried to explain they were not allowed to do so.”
His comments follow the first arrival of around 50 migrants in NYC on Friday. The bus arrived on the orders of Abbott, who has been shipping border-crossers into progressive-led cities to bring attention to the issue of illegal immigration in his own state.
Adams accused the governor of using innocent people “as political pawns to manufacture a crisis,” which is rich coming from a Democrat, whose entire power-grabbing agenda is based upon manufacturing crisis and using people as political pawns.
“They’re not letting us know when the buses are leaving. They’re not letting us know what are the needs of the people on the bus,” Adams continued to whine.
Abbott has also been sending illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C., since April to protest the Biden administration’s refusal to act on the border crisis plaguing Texas. “In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” Abbott said in a statement on Friday.
