ABBOTT PUNCHES BACK: TX Gov. Slams NYC Mayor Over ‘Cowards’ Remark

Take it up with the Biden Administration, Mayor Adams.

Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott fired back at NYC Mayor Eric Adams after Adams claimed the Texas lawmaker was a ‘coward’ for busing migrants up north. Now NYC is dealing with a migrant crisis of its own.

“Our country is home of the free, land of the brave,” Adams said, blasting AZ and TX Govs for their busing initiatives. “We do not become cowards and send people away who are looking for help.”

Adams also says the migrant influx has become “a real burden” on NYC.

Abbott shared a statement on Twitter, suggesting Adams take up his migrant problem President Biden.

“Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas. It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border,” Abbott wrote.

“President Biden’s open border policies created this ongoing humanitarian crisis, allowing record-high illegal crossings and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flood into our state. A crisis that has overrun and overwhelmed our border towns and communities across our state, whose requests for help have gone ignored and unanswered by the Biden Administration,” he added.

“I launched our border busing mission back in April to help our local partners, busing over 5,500 migrants to Washington, D.C. so far. Texas has not bused any migrants to New York,” Abbott noted. “Instead, it is President Biden who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York. Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.”
