Texas Governor Abbott Blasts NYC Mayor Adams: ‘Aiding And Abetting’ Biden’s Border Crisis
Texas Governor Greg Abbott smiles during a press conference to make an announcement on the future of the space industry in Texas, at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, on March 26, 2024. Abbott on March 26 announced the board of directors for the newly-created Texas Space Commission.

Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott slammed New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams during an interview on Sunday for “aiding and abetting” President Joe Biden’s illegal immigration crisis.

Abbott made the remarks on Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday” in response to criticism that he faced from Adams over his decision to bus thousands of illegal aliens from Texas to New York City.

“The person who is actually using illegal immigrants as political pawns is Joe Biden,” Abbott said. “Joe Biden has created this open border policy that has allowed illegal immigrants into our country to appeal to and to appease the far leftists in the Democrat Party that people like [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez in hopes of trying to win their support while at the same time destroying the country that he’s in charge of. He is the commander-in-chief in charge of national security for our country. Our country is being invaded in ways that put our country at risk because of the political games that Joe Biden has played.”

“And Mayor Adams is just aiding and abetting that by having a sanctuary city status, welcoming in anybody from across the world to live there or stay there in New York City on the bill of New York City,” he continued. “And what Mayor Adams needs to do, he needs to stop talking boldly about illegal immigration and the migrants that Texas is sending there. And he needs to step up and do his own job because look at the dangers in New York City under his watch. You have a police officer who is killed. You have the train system in New York, which is treacherous for travelers. You got police officers attacked in Times Square by illegal immigrants.”


Abbott said that Adams needed to “step up and do his job as mayor and protect the people of his community as opposed to gimmicks about what’s going on on the border. ”
