TWO MORE buses carrying 95 migrants arrive in NYC

Two more buses carrying illegal immigrants arrived in the Big Apple on Wednesday, just a day after Mayor Eric Adams threatened to send New Yorkers to Texas to oust the Republican governor.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott last week began sending buses carrying undocumented immigrants to New York City to protest President Joe Biden’s plan to end a pandemic-era program that allowed border officials to cross crossings easier to defeat.

He has already bused in thousands of people from Texas, and two more buses, each carrying 95 people, pulled into the Port Authority at about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday. At least five of the arriving migrants were women, one of whom was pictured with two young children.

City officials said Abbott gave them no warning as to when the migrants would arrive, but that they stand ready to offer on-site medical screenings and other services when deciding what to do with these newcomers.

Migrants have been inundated in recent weeks New York City Shelters, and on Tuesday night the city council held a special hearing on how it might deal with the influx of migrants into the city’s shelters.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has now called for federal intervention and said in a press conference that he has done so “Called all my friends in Texas and told them how to cast their ballots” in the upcoming Texas gubernatorial election, which will see Abbott versus Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

“I’m seriously contemplating going to Texas with a busload of New Yorkers and knocking on some good old fads on the door because for the good of America we gotta get him out of office.”

In response, Abbott’s campaign spokesman told DailyMail.com: “It sounds like the Mayor of New York has taken on the additional role of political director for the campaign from Beto O’Rourke.”

While waiting for migrants to disembark buses Wednesday, New York Immigration Commissioner Manuel Castro railed against Abbott’s plans to send migrants to New York City and Washington DC.

He accused a “morally corrupt” Abbott of using the buses as a “political ploy” to “foment anti-immigrant sentiment.”

“You can’t take Governor Abbott’s words seriously,” Castro said early Wednesday morning outside the New York Times building, according to FOX News. “He demonstrated his moral character with these acts, and they are disgusting.

“We know that people arrive with great needs because of the treatment they have received in the state of Texas,” Castro continued. “This too must be condemned. This needs to be checked.

“And our federal government will … take steps to hold them accountable.

“Nobody blames them,” Castro said of the arriving migrants. “But we condemn the treatment of Gov Abbott.

“If he wanted to help, he would bus them to the places where they are really needed. But he’s not, he’s transporting people to Washington DC and New York City without communicating with us, with the intention of causing as much damage to our cities as possible.’

His comments echoed those of the New York City mayor, who called for more federal funding to handle the influx of new migrants.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday attacked NYC Mayor Eric Adams after he said it was

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday attacked NYC Mayor Eric Adams after he said it was “terrible” to bus migrants from border communities swamped by illegal immigration to the Big Apple.

In his Tuesday news conference, Adams announced that the city’s shelter system was inundated by 4,000 immigrants who poured into the city in search of housing and jobs.

him then called Abbott’s program “irresponsible” for using people for a “political ploy,” and has done so had previously called Abbott’s plan “terrible.”

Adams claimed that the migrants didn’t necessarily want to come to the Big Apple, but “weren’t allowed to.”

“They were forced onto the bus with the understanding that they would go to other places they wanted to go,” he claimed, “and when they tried to explain, they were not allowed to do so.

“It’s unimaginable to come to this country and make your first visit here and someone is trying to kick you out like the Texas governor is doing,” he continued.

“I think he’s irresponsible. I don’t think he achieves anything. There’s a reason the Statue of Liberty is there. We all come from somewhere… I don’t think he accomplishes anything other than expose the type of person he is.

Adams’ press office said they couldn’t respond to the mayor’s threat to send New Yorkers to Texas to vote against Abbott, but said the mayor is considering it.

But the New York City Council held an emergency meeting just hours later to figure out how to deal with the growing problem, at which Adrienne Adams, chair of the Common Welfare Committee, called for more transparency and accountability, reports ABC News.

“Although the number of asylum seekers in New York City may be increasing, that doesn’t mean they are responsible for problems that have plagued our system in the past,” Adams said.

Meanwhile, Abbott has called the mayor of New York City a “hypocrite” for denouncing the influx of migrants into the city.

He had previously invited Adams and Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to the state to see the immigration crisis firsthand, but Adams declined.

“Mayor Adams is hypocritically upset at welcoming a few dozen to his city of refuge,” the governor said Monday.

“What is terrible is the thousands of illegal immigrants who are overrunning and overwhelming our border communities with populations smaller than a New York borough.”

He has also vowed to “keep sending those buses” until leaders in the Northeast understand what’s happening in Texas, “and most importantly — until the Biden administration does its job of enforcing the laws regarding the border.”

Abbott has found Adams to be a useful foil for showing Texas voters that he is tough on immigration.

New York considers itself a safe haven for undocumented migrants and does not cooperate with immigration law enforcement officers on deportation or detention matters.

Adams, whom the New Yorker has criticized for trying to roll back criminal justice reform, has used the spit to prove his Democratic credibility.

O’Rourke, the governor’s political rival, won nearly a million votes in March’s Democratic primary. Abbott won 1.3 million votes.
