Texas Gov. Greg Abbott cheers as a busload of migrants arrives in New York

A busload of migrants arrived in New York on Friday after Gov. Greg Abbott sent them across the US-Mexico border from Texas. Abbott has been ferrying migrants to Washington, DC for weeks, prompting the city’s mayor to call in the National Guard for help. “With President Biden’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis created by his open border policy, the state of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” Abbott said in a press release Friday. The governor of the republic protested President Joe Biden’s move to end Trump-era policies which previously allowed Border Patrol agents to remove more migrants at the border to prevent the spread of COVID-19. A busload of about 50 migrants arrived at the Manhattan Port Authority Bus Terminal on Friday morning, where they were assisted by non-governmental volunteers. “In addition to Washington, New York is an ideal destination for these migrants, who have access to the many city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams touted as a sanctuary city,” Abbott said.
