Texas Gov. Abbott travels to sanctuary city to say he won’t stop bussing in illegal immigrants

Apr 5, 2024 | Political News

Texas will continue to bus illegal immigrants pouring across its border to sanctuary cities “until we get a new president,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott told a Manhattan crowd on Thursday – just hours after New York City Mayor Eric Adams criticized the Republican's handling of the crisis and offered him a free stay at one of the Big Apple's migrant shelters.

Abbott's comments came during his keynote address at the New York Republican Party’s annual gala, at which the Lone Star State governor and other high-profile Republicans took aim at Adams and the Biden administration due to the continuing influx of illegal immigrants entering the U.S.

“The complaining by Mayor Adams is nothing short [of] stunning,” Abbott told those at the event, which was held just a few blocks away from a hotel that Adams' administration transformed into an intake center for migrants. “What he has is a tiny fraction of what Texas gets every day.”
