New York City, a so-called “sanctuary city,” is deporting illegal aliens bused in from Texas… to Florida.
The first busload of illegal immigrants sent by Governor Greg Abbott of Texas arrived in New York City in early August.
According to a statement released by the office of the Governor of Texas over the summer, the first bus carrying roughly 50 immigrants from Venezuela, Ecuador, Honduras, and Colombia arrived at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
“The 1st bus of migrants has arrived in NYC,” Governor Abbott announced.
“Because of President Brandon’s continued refusal to acknowledge the crisis caused by his open border policies, the State of Texas has had to take unprecedented action to keep our communities safe,” said Governor Abbott in a statement.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams called Gov. Abbott and Arizona’s Governor Doug Ducey “cowards” for turning away refugees.
Adams said the influx of illegal aliens is “a real burden on New Yorkers.”
“Food, clothing, school. This is going to impact our schools…there’s just a whole host of things that this is going to produce,” Adams said in July.
New York City is now busing some of the illegals to Florida and other states.
Fox 5 NY reported:
New York City officials claim that many of the migrants who are being bused from Texas did not want to go to New York so they are helping them get to other states.
The New York City Commissioner of Immigration Affairs appeared on the FOX 5 NY morning show “Good Day New York” on Wednesday.
Commissioner Manuel Castro says that a lot of the migrants are fleeing Venezuela and are.
Castro says, “Many want to go to places like Florida where the largest community of Venezuelans live.”
He says they have family and community ties in Florida.
“We’re helping them get to their actual final destination,” Castro says. “We’re doing our best.”
