After busing over 6,1000 illegal immigrants who had crossed over into the US via the Texas-Mexico border to Washington D.C., much to the chagrin of their radical Mayor Muriel Bowser, Gov. Abbott has set his sights on New York City to continue to try to draw attention to the humanitarian and logistical nightmare which is the border crisis.
Governor Abbott had invited New York City’s Mayor Eric Adams to visit the southern border mere days before the first bus arrived–an offer which Adams refused. Now, the border is coming to visit him.
From the New York Post:
The Republican governor revealed in a statement that the migrant bus arrived at Gate 14 of the Port Authority Bus Terminal, but did not provide any additional details — such as how many people were on board or their countries of origin.
“Because of President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” Abbott said in his Friday statement.
“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. I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief,” he continued.
New York City’s right to housing laws requires the municipality to offer shelter to “every unhoused person,” such as the bus full of migrants who have just arrived.
Mayor Adams revealed that the homeless shelters in NYC are already being overrun with migrants. Adams had previously accused Arizona and Texas of sending the migrants northward to his city. This was not the case at the time. However, Governor Abbott has now taken him up on his accusation.
Neither D.C. nor NYC have welcomed the migrants into their so-called sanctuary cities with open arms, proving once again the hypocrisy of the Democrats.
Biden’s open borders policy has proven an unprecedented crisis for migrants and Texans alike. Still, until the Democrat strongholds have to experience it firsthand, there is no way that the Biden Administration will take action to stop the surge.
