5 Migrant Buses Mark the Most Ever to Arrive in NYC From Texas in One Day; Gov. Greg Abbott sends five more buses of migrants to New York, escalating feud with Mayor Eric Adams; Greg Abbott: Eric Adams is all talk when it comes to ‘open’ borders

5 migrant buses mark the most ever to arrive in NYC from Texas in one day:
Some things are getting bigger in Texas — namely, the convoys of buses carrying migrants to New York City.
Five buses rolled up outside the Port Authority terminal in Midtown Manhattan in little more than an hour Wednesday morning, with three arriving around 6:15 a.m.
Two more pulled in around 7:30 a.m.
Prior to Wednesday, the most buses to arrive in the Big Apple in a single day was three.
City officials said latest the caravan carried a total of 237 passengers, including 14 children, all of whom were accompanied by their parents.
One of the kids was a skinny, adolescent boy who grinned ear-to-ear as he stepped onto the sidewalk and shook hands with city Assistant Commissioner of Immigrant Affairs Erick Salgado.
The unidentified boy carried a clear plastic bag of clothing and was wearing brightly colored, leaf-patterned shorts and what appeared to be an American-flag-themed T-shirt. --->READ MORE HERE

Gov. Greg Abbott sends five more buses of migrants to New York, escalating feud with Mayor Eric Adams:
Five more busloads of migrants who crossed the border from Mexico into Texas reached New York City on Wednesday as Gov. Greg Abbott escalated his feud with the city’s mayor with a victory lap op-ed in the New York Post.
The latest group of buses is the biggest to reach the East Coast city in one day since Abbott began the policy in early August, according to Fox News. In the biting op-ed, the governor accused New York City Mayor Eric Adams of hypocrisy when it comes to his border policies.
“Adams talked the talk about being a sanctuary city — welcoming illegal immigrants into the Big Apple with warm hospitality,” Abbott wrote. “Talk is cheap. When pressed into fulfilling such ill-considered policies, he wants to condemn anyone who is pressing him to walk the walk.”
The New York arrivals are an expansion of Abbott’s plan to bus migrants voluntarily to Washington, D.C., in April — an effort that was initially designed to antagonize President Joe Biden as Abbott criticized him over border security. But in recent months, Abbott has gleefully stoked new feuds with the Democratic mayors in Washington and New York as they’ve complained about the impact of migrants in their cities.
"Mayor Adams is a hypocrite," Abbott's campaign Press Secretary Renae Eze said in a statement to The Texas Tribune. "He represents a self-declared sanctuary city, yet he’s complaining about a few hundred migrants being bused into his city. If the mayor wants a solution to this humanitarian crisis, he should stop complaining and call on President Biden to take immediate action to secure the border." --->READ MORE HERE
