NYC Mayor Eric Adams blasts Texas Gov. Greg Abbott after second bus of migrants arrives: ‘This is horrific’

New York City Mayor Eric Adams blasted Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday after a second bus full of illegal migrants arrived on his doorstep.
Adams gave a news conference at the Port Authority on Sunday morning, where he greeted an arriving bus carrying around 40 migrants - of whom only 14 disembarked in the Big Apple.

"This is appalling given what the governor is doing," Adams said, noting that many of the families who arrived did not know they were coming to New York City.

"We find that some of the families were on the bus who wanted to go to other places and they weren't allowed to do that," the mayor said. "They were forced onto the bus with the understanding that they would go to other places they wanted to go and when they tried to explain it they were not allowed to do so."

His comments follow the first arrival of around 50 migrants at a port authority in New York City on Friday. The bus arrived on orders from Abbott, who has been shipping frontier workers to liberal cities to raise awareness of the problem of illegal immigration in his own state.
Adams has accused the governor of using innocent people "as political pawns to create a crisis."
On Sunday, he complained that the Abbott New York City government was not properly notifying the migrants' arrival.

"They don't let us know when the buses leave. They don't let us know what people need on the bus," Adams said. "They don't give us any information, so we can't really offer the service to people on the go."
Abbott has also been sending illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C., since April to protest the Biden administration's refusal to act on the Texas border crisis.
"Besides Washington, D.C. New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the wealth of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about in the city of refuge," Abbott said in a statement Friday.
He added: "I hope he keeps his promise to welcome all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief."
