We LOVE NYC: At least 20% of the illegal migrants in El Paso WANT to travel to the Big Apple and are NOT forced onto Gov. Abbott’s buses against their will says boss of charity that runs overwhelmed shelter in Texas city
- Blake Barrow, CEO of the El Paso Rescue Mission charity, said at least 20 percent of migrants in the Texas city want to be bussed to NYC
About a fifth of the migrants being bussed from El Paso to New York allegedly want to travel to the Big Apple and are not being transported against their will.
Blake Barrow, CEO of the El Paso Rescue Mission charity, said his organization has been overwhelmed by the influx of migrants crossing the border illegally, but the immigrants have been more than happy to take up Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s offer to bus them to New York City.
‘About 20% of them want to go to New York,’ Barrow wrote in an open letter on Wednesday. ‘The city has been chartering busses to New York to assist those desiring that destination.
‘I am not aware of anyone being placed on a bus to New York who did not want to go there.’
