(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Friday, Texas announced that more migrants would be transported by bus to New York City. The busing operation is set to continue despite New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-N.Y.) saying that New York is at “capacity.”
On Friday, more buses left from Eagle Pass and Del Rio heading towards New York. The buses have been chartered by the Texas Division of Emergency Management and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. Abott took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to once again state that the migrant crisis should not only be the burden of Texas border towns. He added that in order to provide relief to the border towns dealing with President Biden’s open border policies, they would be using buses to transport migrants to self-proclaimed sanctuary cities.
Hochul previously requested federal aid to assist with the migrants who are entering the city. However, the White House refused to provide funding, arguing that the funding needed to come from Congress.
Earlier this month, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) warned that the migrant crisis was going to “destroy” the city and argued for more state and federal aid, which would help them handle the surge in migrants. So far, New York has received approximately $140 million in federal funding, which has been used for shelters.
According to Adam’s office, since the spring of 2022, there have been over 110,000 asylum-seekers who have reached New York City. However, Abbott has blasted Adams for his comments, claiming that he would not even be able to survive a single day in Texas.
Over the past few months, Abbott has sent thousands of migrants by bus to Denver, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. In order for asylum-seekers to be able to be transported to a sanctuary city, they need to have documentation from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that allows them to travel. They also must volunteer to be transported.
