Illegal immigrants being shipped out of Texas are enraging officials in other states. New York City is now using 14 hotels to house illegal immigrants. Governor Greg Abbott has sent more than 1,500 immigrants packing to New York. The Governor continues to successfully draw national attention to the ongoing border and immigration crisis.

“Texas is filling the gaps left in Biden’s absence at our border,” Abbott wrote on social media after the Saturday buses arrived. “We’ve made over 19,000 arrests, seized over 335.5M lethal fentanyl doses, & sent over 7,400 migrants on buses to DC and over 1,500 to NYC. While Biden ignores the crisis, Texas steps up.”
Supporters see Abbott’s bus program as forcing liberal cities and government to deal with the reality of mass illegal immigration.
New York City and Washington D.C. have positioned themselves as “sanctuary cities.”
Critics say the buses are a cheap ploy for attention. “He’s weaponizing asylum seekers,” Manuel Castro, commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs said. “It is shameful, and it is our moral obligation to condemn the use of human beings for political purposes.”

Castro was not the only official in Mayor Eric Adams’s administration to blast Abbott. City Comptroller Brad Lander said Abbott’s action are “inhumane” and “disgusting.”
Lander said the city’s resources are being stretched thin as they provide shelter, food, legal services and more.
The Biden Administration has no plan for how to handle this ongoing crisis. Governor Greg Abbott is doing his job. Now what will the Biden Administration do?
