First bus of migrants from Texas arrives in New York City

BREAKING NEWS: First bus of migrants from Texas arrives in New York City: Gov. Greg Abbott says border crossers can now receive ‘services and housing’ Mayor Eric Adams has ‘boasted about’

The first bus of migrants sent from Texas by Governor Greg Abbott arrived in New York City on Friday morning.

The group was dropped off at Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan after making the almost 2,000-mile trip from the border in footage captured by Fox News.

A group of charity workers and volunteers greeted the roughly 50 migrants, who were mostly men, before they ventured into the city.

New York City now joins Washington D.C. as a drop-off location for migrants who have recently crossed from Central America, have been processed and are awaiting their immigration court dates.

The Biden administration has accused Republican states of using migrants as a ‘political ploy’ and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser last week said the buses are causing a ‘humanitarian crisis’ in the nation’s capital.

She called in the National Guard to assist with the more than 5,000 migrants who have been sent to D.C.

‘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,’ said Governor Abbott. 

‘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.’
