New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams continues to attack Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, claiming that his city can’t handle the busing of migrants.
Meanwhile, Texas and other border states encounter thousands of migrants at the border each day.

Not even close
According to statistics from the Texas governor’s office, as of last week, just 360 migrants had been bussed to New York City. Another 6,800 have been bussed to Washington, D.C.
The border has dealt with about 200,000 migrants per month recently under the Biden administration.
Abbot’s not being irresponsible. Texas & other states on the border can’t handle the overwhelming number of illegals, so it makes sense to send them to “sanctuary” cities.

That’s not all
In addition to those who have crossed illegally, Texas has invested enormous amounts of money to protect its border.
The state has also used its own National Guard troops in the effort to do the job the Biden administration will not.
Texas National Guard troops use tactical vehicles to block & repel illegal immigrants from crossing into Texas.
Thank you to the Texas National Guard & Texas Department of Public Safety for your service, diligence, & sacrifice to keep our communities safe. pic.twitter.com/hxNhiB793B

Despite the unfair situation at the southern border, Adams has sided with his party instead of dealing with the facts.
The crisis at the border is not due to anything done by Texas. The problem is with the policies coming from Biden’s White House.
If Adams wants to stop seeing migrants arriving in his city from Texas, he can start by contacting the Oval Office instead of the office of the governor of Texas.
