(PJ Media) New York City Mayor Eric Adams complained two weeks ago that illegals were overrunning his city and depleting city services. He blamed Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) and his “Operation Lone Star” program for busing illegals to New York, but Abbott never sent any buses to the Big Apple — until now.
Abbott had targeted Washington, D.C. in the bus program. But since Adams mistakenly blamed Abbott for the influx of illegals into New York City two weeks ago, the Texas governor obliged the mayor and is sending some buses his way. The first bus from the border arrived in the borough of Manhattan on Friday.
Adams was livid about New York shelters filling up and the influx of illegal aliens putting a strain on city services. But it wasn’t Abbott’s doing. As the New York Post has been reporting for months, the Feds have been flying illegals from the border directly to the Big Apple — and not telling anyone about it.
New York is a sanctuary city, and Adams said he would welcome all illegals despite the strain on city services. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief,” Abbott said in a statement.
