"@GregAbbott_TX used innocent people as political pawns to manufacture a crisis. New Yorkers are stepping up to fix it — that’s our city’s values. But we need the federal government’s help — money, technical assistance and more." New York City Mayor, Eric Adams

The war between New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Texas Gov Greg Abbott heated up today.

Mayor Adams took to Twitter to criticize Gov Abbott for using "innocent people are political pawns to manufacture a crisis."

Gov Abbott has started bussing migrants to New York City and Washington, D.C. to protest President Biden's immigration policies and what Abbott believes is poor handling of security at the southern border.

"The historic crisis at our southern border is preventable & deserves immediate federal action. Leaders across our nation must call on President Biden to do his job & secure the border." Texas Gov Greg Abbott

Abbott has also invited Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and New York City Mayor Eric Adams to the border to witness the situation firsthand.

Today Mayor Adams visited the New York Port Authority, where another bus load of migrants had arrived from Texas.

This is horrific, when you think about what the governor is doing.Our goal is to immediately find out each family’s needs and give them the assistance they want.”Mayor Adams

Adams claimed that many of the migrants were forced on the bus.

Gov Abbott is glad that Mayor Adams is experiencing something that is a regular occurrence in towns on the Texas/Mexico border.

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,” Texas Gov Abbott

So far, there has been no response from the Biden Administration to Adams' request for assistance.
