Governor Greg Abbott announced Friday the arrival of the first group of illegals bused from Texas to New York City. Abbott thus expands his response to what he describes as an "invasion" of immigrants in the face of the Biden Administration's open borders policy.
Announcing the arrival of the first group of migrants bused from Texas to New York City.
Our border towns are overwhelmed as a result of Pres. Biden's open border policies. The State of Texas continues taking unprecedented action to help our communities. https://t.co/XjuLRG96wi

Thus, a new shipment of illegals is arriving in the Big Apple after other groups have been sent to Washington D.C. Abbott is taking this action in the face of the Democratic Administration's inaction in the face of the migration crisis on the southern border and in view of the progressive open-arms policies of New York and DC.
"Due to President Biden's continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented steps to keep our communities safe," the governor says in an irony-laden 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 within the sanctuary city. I hope he fulfills his promise to welcome all migrants with open arms so that our overwhelmed and overwhelmed border cities can find relief."
New York and Washington mayors want illegals in the country, but not in their cities
A few days ago, New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed that immigrants are becoming a "real burden" on the city. The Democratic politician asked the federal government for funds to address the situation. In his Friday communication, Gregg Abbott reminds him that, "as one of the few cities with housing rights laws, New York City is obligated to provide emergency housing to all homeless persons."
Something similar happens with Washington. Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser requested a few days ago that the National Guard be activated to take care of the 4,000 immigrants she claims were sent from Texas and Arizona by bus. Bowser pointed out that the situation "is unsustainable" because they do not have enough resources to help the people who are arriving and denounced that immigration had reached a "tipping point".
The governor of Texas has invited the mayors of New York and Washington D.C. to visit his state's border with Mexico so they can get a true picture of the scale of the human crisis caused by the surge of illegal immigrants. New York City Mayor Eric Adams declined this invitation. Now you can get a firsthand look at the reality of illegal immigration by coming to meet the buses arriving from Texas.
