Texas promises to send more buses with illegal immigrants to New York

Last week in New York arrived two buses with illegal immigrants. Texas officials have said they plan to send more immigrants to New York by bus. While local officials and immigrant rights activists claim people are sent here without enough food, water and medical care, reports Gothamist.

“Yes, there will now be more buses from Texas to New York as part of our current strategy,” said Hayley Crow, an aide to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

Since August 5, two buses carrying refugees arrived from Texas to New York City, with a total of 68 passengers, according to New York City's Office of Immigrant Affairs. They are part of a much larger wave. At least 4000 immigrants have arrived from Texas in the past two months, New York officials said.

New York City officials and immigrant rights advocates said some of those recently sent on buses by the Republican governor did not have enough provisions. And others required immediate medical attention upon arrival in New York.

According to Ilse Tillmann, director of Team TLC, among the affected illegal immigrants was a 12-year-old girl with diabetes. She was put on a bus bound for New York without any insulin. According to Tillmann, the girl was "obviously in a critical condition." In Texas, this message has not yet been commented on.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams Speaks of the Contrast Between NYC and Texas Values

The Adams administration has been complaining for weeks that the city's shelter system is flooded with refugees sent here from the border states.

New York City law requires local governments to provide shelter for homeless people who have nowhere else to go.

“What he (Abbott) is doing is just mean and cruel,” Adams said. “There is nothing more anti-American than what he is doing right now.”

In a statement last week, Abbott noted that 6500 illegal immigrants were moved north from Texas. Many of them are in Washington DC. And now he's set his sights on New York.

“New York is the ideal place for these migrants, because they can get an abundance of urban services and housing. Mayor Eric Adams boasted about this, emphasizing that New York is a city of refuge, Abbott said in a statement. “I hope he keeps his promise to welcome all migrants with open arms. And our overcrowded and overburdened frontier towns can find relief.”
