Now that New York City Mayor Eric Adams is getting a taste of what it’s like to be a Republican-led border state, he’s awfully angry — but at the wrong people.
Instead of directing his rage at the Biden administration, which has and continues to exacerbate the border crisis with its widely panned policy decisions, he’s instead directing his rage at border-state governors like Greg Abbott of Texas.
He’s particularly mad that Abbott has been committing the apparent sin of funneling the illegal aliens crossing into his state to NYC, a city that is, thanks to Adams’ own decision-making, a sanctuary city for illegal aliens.
Adams is so angry that illegal aliens are being funneled into his sanctuary city that he’s begun threatening to travel to Texas to campaign against Abbott, who’s running for reelection in November.
“I already called all of my friends in Texas and told them how to cast their vote. And I am deeply contemplating taking a busload of New Yorkers to go to Texas and do some good old-fashioned door knocking. Because for the good of America, we have to get him out of office,” the mayor said during a press briefing Tuesday.

Apparently, NYC is a sanctuary city in name only …
Adams’ latest attack came two days after he issued a statement calling the funneling of illegal aliens into his city “horrific” and further alleging without evidence that the illegals are being relocated to NYC against their will.
“This is horrific, when you think about what the governor is doing. Some of the families are on the bus that wanted to go to other locations, and they were not allowed to do so. They were forced on the bus. Our goal is to immediately find out each family’s needs and give them the assistance they want,” he said.
Abbott’s office clapped back on Monday.
“What’s horrific is the thousands of illegal immigrants overrunning and overwhelming our border communities with populations smaller than a New York City borough, and Mayor Adams is hypocritically upset about welcoming a few dozen into his sanctuary city,” the governor’s press secretary said in a written statement to The Houston Chronicle.
“These migrants willingly chose to go to New York City, having signed a voluntary consent waiver, available in multiple languages, upon boarding that they agreed on the destination,” the press secretary added.
Abbott was not the only one to clap back. So did members of the public, who were quick to explain to Adams that NYC is experiencing just a sliver of what border states have to deal with on a daily basis.
Critics were also eager to remind Adams that he voluntarily chose to make NYC a sanctuary city and thus is obliged to do his part.
Just for perspective…NYC Mayor Eric Adams is calling for federal help because he says around 4,000 migrants have arrived in NYC in last 3 months since May.
Texas averages 4,000 migrants crossing its border *every single day*, and so far, has sent less than 100 migrants to NYC.

You expect border states to foot the entire bill for open border policies that the Dems are encouraging. This is sharing the burden of YOUR beliefs. Sanctuary city sir, live your beliefs.

Two buses dropped off 55 migrants this morning. Every state should help take in migrants as long as @POTUS and @VP are fine with millions coming across the border. Texas and Arizona cannot absorb them all. @NYCMayor needs to do his part. It’s a sanctuary city- supposedly.

@NYCMayor Eric Adams. NYC is a sanctuary city. So sanctuary away. Don’t expect the rest of the country to be the only places to bear the burden and weight of a migrant population that’s untenable. Do your part, sanctuary city mayor! https://t.co/TKneBOMqSk

As noted before, the true culprit is the Biden administration, which continues to pursue policies that incentivize more and more and more illegal migration.
Most recently, the Biden administration formally nixed former President Donald Trump’s highly successful Remain in Mexico policy.
“The Department of Homeland Security said Monday that it ended a Trump-era policy requiring asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for hearings in U.S. immigration court, hours after a judge lifted an order in effect since December that it be reinstated,” according to the Associated Press.
Thanks to the nixing of this successful policy, even more illegal aliens are expected to flood across the southern U.S. border in the coming days and weeks.
This common-sense policy helped stop the flood of asylum seekers because people do not want to pay smugglers thousands of dollars to wait in Mexico.
The Biden Administration is making a huge mistake in abandoning Remain in Mexico.
So dumb. So dangerous.
