A bus carrying about 50 migrants arrived in New York City Friday, part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s effort to ship newcomers that arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border to Democrat-run cities on the east coast.
In April, the governor ordered the Texas Division of Emergency Management to charter buses to transport migrants to Washington D.C. — since then, “thousands of migrants have been transported to the nation’s capital while providing much needed relief to Texas’ overwhelmed border communities,” according to a statement from Abbott’s office.
May was a record-breaking month for migrant arrests along the U.S.-Mexico border
