Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called Mayor Eric Adams’ bluff on Monday by inviting him to the border to witness the disastrous policy decisions being made by President Joe Biden and his administration.
Adams, the former NYPD cop, who had the same career arrest record as playoff wins by the NY Jets, scoffed at the offer suggesting it was just a photo op for the Republican governor.
“Instead of a photo-op at the border, we hope Governor Abbott will focus his energy and resources on providing support and resources to asylum seekers in Texas as we have been hard at work doing in New York City,” said Fabien Levy, Adams’ press secretary.
Adams had earlier accused Gov. Abbott of sending migrants directly to New York, in order to get more federal cash to combat the growing homelessness problem.
“We continue to work with federal partners to receive additional financial resources immediately, but will never turn our backs on those in need who are arriving here.”
On July 19, Adams called on President Biden to send “additional federal resources immediately” with city shelters being overrun with asylum-seeking migrants.
Abbott denied the charge and flipped the script of the neophyte mayor.
“Your recent interest in this historic and preventable crisis is a welcomed development – especially as the President and his administration have shown no remorse for their actions nor desire to address the situation themselves,” Abbott wrote.
“As Governor, I invite you to visit our border region to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day, and to meet with the local officials, who like yourselves, realize this matter deserves immediate federal action.”
Adams, who strongly criticized the Texas governor, while declaring New York a sanctuary city was schooled by Abbott.
While Texas and Arizona have sent busloads of migrants to DC to show the feds how dire the situation has become, they noted it was the feds, and not their states, busing people to New York.
