During his recent visit to New York City, Governor Greg Abbott addressed the ongoing migrant crisis, which has been a topic of concern for leaders in the area. The Governor made several appearances and shared his valuable insights on the matter. Despite the challenges posed by the border crisis, Governor Abbott remains steadfast in his efforts to find solutions to this pressing issue.
Governor Abbott had an interview on Fox & Friends last Wednesday.
As per Spectrum, Governor Abbott stated that…
“What is going on in New York is calm and organized compared to the real chaos of what we see on the border not every day, but every hour of every day.”
“We’ve sent about 10% of the migrants that you have here which candidly would be easy for New York to deal with.”
“The challenge that the city of New York and the state of New York are dealing with is caused by one person: Joe Biden.”
“They must prevail upon their president for more than just money. They need a change in policy.”
Governor Abbott addressed the migrant problem at the Manhattan Institute on Wednesday in New York City.
Abbott stated in a press release:
“We as a nation are facing an extraordinary challenge, quite literally a national crisis, as we gather in New York today.”
“There are ways in which Texas is stopping people from illegally entering, but the Biden Administration wants those people to come in. This is unsustainable, and those are the words of your Mayor. Those are the words of the Mayors of Chicago and Los Angeles. Those are the words of the Governor of Texas. What’s going on is unsustainable. It’s a crisis that’s chaotic and must stop. While we are waiting on a President who is going to enforce the laws—not even pass new laws—that are currently on the books, Texas is going to continue to use every tool we can to secure the border in the best way that we can.”
Eric Adams, the mayor of New York City, initially placed the responsibility on Governor Abbott, but is now shifting his criticism to President Biden and requesting more support.
