Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has fired back at NYC’s Eric Adams after the Democrat mayor accused the Texas governor of bussing migrants to New York.
As Slay News previously reported, Adams complained that New York City’s homeless shelters are filling up with migrants.
Adams blamed the issue on Abbott, claiming the governor was bussing illegal border crossers from Texas to New York.
However, in an embarrassing turn for the Democrats, Abbott revealed that Texas had not sent any migrants.
Abbott humiliated the Democratic Party by revealing that it was President Joe Biden who “has flown planeloads of migrants to New York.”
“Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas,” Abbott said.
“It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border.
“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.
“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 bused any migrants to New York.
“Instead, it is President Biden who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York.
“Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.”
