The Difficulty: Mayor Adams’ criticism of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sending migrants to New York Metropolis.
How dangerous is it that even unlawful migrants are afraid to return to New York Metropolis (“ ‘Dodge’ metropolis,” Aug. 8)?
Mayor Adams, I’m astonished that you just complain about poor communication with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s workplace on bus schedules, however by no means as soon as did you condemn the secretive, after-dark migrant flights arriving in New York. The “particular processing space” was hidden from the general public as effectively.
This isn’t a political stunt on the a part of Abbott. It’s a actuality verify for you, to see for your self what is occurring on the border.
You might be failing the folks of New York, from crime run amok to overflowing homeless shelters to lack of therapy for the mentally ailing — and extra unlawful migrants than New York Metropolis can accommodate.
Put public strain on Gov. Hochul to place the folks of New York first. This can be a dying metropolis beneath Democratic management. Time for change.
Are you able to blame Abbott for sending unlawful folks crossing into his state to DC and New York? Now that that is occurring, our hypocrite politicians are crying for federal assist. These are “sanctuary” cities, so it’s come one, come all.
The fashionable world has eradicated many illnesses, however now we’ve got folks from all around the world coming into this nation, vaccinated or not, bringing in all strains of sickness. The place did monkeypox come from immediately? What’s subsequent?
Residents of New York, watch out whom you vote for: You may’t complain after you place these skilled politicians in. It’s time for a change.

Abbott’s coverage of busing illegals to New York is nothing wanting sensible.
The outrage from Adams and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser places a highlight on the hypocrisy of the liberal progressives.
These mayors, and lots of extra like them in Democratic cities, favor an unrestricted inflow of migrants — however to not their cities.
Although they remained silent when Biden had unlawful migrants flown from the Mexican border into New York and different areas in the midst of the evening to keep away from detection, progressive Mayors Adams and Bowser at the moment are loudly complaining about related actions taken by border-state governors like Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey.
They check with this voluntarily transporting of migrants to their cities as “merciless gamesmanship” and “disgusting.” They worry that amenities in New York and DC shall be overloaded.
In reality, it’s the border cities like Uvalde which are overwhelmed. Adams and Bowser ought to go to Texas and Arizona to see firsthand the chaos that Biden has created on the border earlier than condemning governors who’re making an attempt to guard their cities.
As advocates of sanctuary-city insurance policies, in the event that they speak the speak, they need to stroll the stroll.
The outrage by Adams and Bowser regarding migrants being bused to their respective cities from Texas is hilarious. Do they notice how disingenuous they sound?
They’ve declared their cities are sanctuary havens, but at the moment are asking for federal assist to deal with migrants whereas condemning small-border-town leaders as racists who ought to simply, with out complaining, deal with the wants of many, many 1000’s of them.
Hey, Mayor Adams, there’s a easy response to Abbott’s coverage of sending hordes of unlawful immigrants in chartered buses to the Port Authority: Simply constitution your individual buses and ship these law-breakers proper again to Texas, ideally to the state capital of Austin, the place Abbott resides.
The primary time one of many unlawful immigrants whom Abbott has despatched us commits a homicide or a rape, the Texas governor ought to be indicted as an confederate, together with the feckless and ineffective Adams.
