NYC Mayor Blames Republican Governors for Influx of Illegal Immigrants

In Brief: 

The attacks on the Governors of Texas and Arizona continue. NYC Mayor Eric Adams on Thursday called the Republican governors of Texas and Arizona “cowards” for bussing asylum-seeking migrants to Washington, DC, and suggested that the governors lied about not also sending migrants to New York City.

The Background:

The attacks follow the criticism of D.C mayor Muriel Bowser last week. The Liberal Left continues to insist that America leave her borders vulnerable, and criticizes how conservatives in border states are handling the influx of illegals. And yet, the Left is also the loudest in complaining that those illegals are being bussed into their cities.

Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) argued that his bus program sends migrants to the nation’s capital, not to New York City. The Biden administration has authorized flights of migrants to New York. 

“I launched our border busing mission back in April to help our local partners, busing over 5,500 migrants to Washington, D.C. so far. Texas has not bussed any migrants to New York,” Abbott noted. “Instead, it is President Biden who has flown plane-loads of migrants to New York. Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.”

Abbot continued, “President Biden’s open-border policies created this ongoing humanitarian crisis, allowing record-high illegal crossings and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flood into our state. A crisis that has overrun and overwhelmed our border towns and communities across our state, whose requests for help have gone ignored and unanswered by the Biden Administration.” 

Notable Quotes: 

“Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas. It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border.” – Texas Governor Greg Abbott
