Governor Greg Abbott’s ongoing practice of bussing migrants detained near Texas’ southern border to metropolises in other states has touched a new nerve with New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who told reporters on Sunday that asylum seekers have arrived against their will in his city after being misled by officials in the Lone Star State.
On Sunday, Adams told Politico’s Erin Durkin that more than 4,000 asylum seekers have attempted to seek refuge at the city’s homeless shelters since May. “This is horrific, when you think about what the governor is doing,” Adams said while meeting a bus of arriving migrants at the Port Authority bus terminal.
