Texas Governor Greg Abbott isn’t backing down from his plan to make big city Democrats deal what Texas cities have been dealing with since Biden took office.
Today he had five buses full of illegals arrive in the Big Apple, which put the total number of illegals he’s sent there to over 1,000.
Via Fox News:
Five more buses arrived in New York City from Texas Wednesday, the most buses in one day to reach the Big Apple.
The new buses are only the latest to make the trip — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sent more than 1,000 migrants to New York since Aug. 5, his office has said.
Abbott began sending migrants out of his state to liberal cities like New York and Washington, D.C., thousands of miles from the U.S.-Mexico border as a way to bring attention to the migrant crisis affecting his state.
Abbott isn’t just responding to the criticisms leveled at him by the NYC mayor. He also wrote an op-ed where he called out Mayor Adams for being unwilling to walk the walk despite talking big about being a very welcoming sanctuary city:
Abbott called out Adams’ “hypocrisy” in a Wednesday New York Post op-ed, saying the mayor “likes to pat himself on the back for welcoming migrants with open arms to his sanctuary city. That is, until he actually has to follow through on those lofty promises.”
“Adams talked the talk about being a sanctuary city — welcoming illegal immigrants into the Big Apple with warm hospitality,” Abbott wrote. “Talk is cheap. When pressed into fulfilling such ill-considered policies, he wants to condemn anyone who is pressing him to walk the walk.”
At a press conference after a previous bus of migrants arrived, Adams threatened to take a busload of New Yorkers to Texas to door knock and help get Abbott out of office for the “good of America,” before then calling for more federal funding to address the influx of migrants to the Big Apple sanctuary city.
“This is horrific when you think about what the governor is doing,” Adams said.
Horrific? Horrific?? Abbott is doing the exact same thing the federal government is doing by transporting illegals from the border to states across the country. How is what he’s doing any different than the federal government? He’s not tricking illegals like these mayors are claiming. No, they must volunteer to go to DC or NYC and that’s been proven to be the case.
Abbott is right about Adams. He wants to pretend he’s this lover of illegals with his sanctuary city mecca until he’s forced to deal with an influx of illegals he can’t control. Then he cries like a baby, complaining about being a victim of mean governors or something.
You want to be a welcoming sanctuary city? Then stop whining about it Mayor Adams and deal with it. Because that’s exactly what Biden’s policies are forcing mayors at the border to deal with and on a much larger scale.
Once again, I love the fact that Abbott isn’t backing down. This program has been far more effective than I ever thought it would be and I can’t wait until he targets San Francisco with these bus rides.
