For months, border states like Texas have been bussing migrants to blue cities up North. Governors have claimed this is the only way they can deal with the exploding border crisis—accusing Democrats of ignoring the issue.
These blue cities, all sanctuary cities for illegals, are outraged that they have to deal with the border crisis as well.
One city has demanded billions from the government to deal with the crisis. But Biden has refused to do so. Now, the mayor is taking an extraordinary step to prevent more migrants from overwhelming his sanctuary city.
From The Post Millennial:
On Thursday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced that his administration had taken their fight against the bussing of illegal immigrants to the NY state Supreme Court, filing a $700 million lawsuit against 17 charter bus companies that facilitated the transport of undocumented newcomers from the southern border to the Big Apple.
Adams accused the companies of violating state law by failing to cover the cost of caring for the nearly 34,000 illegal immigrants brought in over the past 20 months, which has amounted to nearly three quarters of a billion dollars.
Mayor Eric Adams of New York is suing the bus companies that are bringing migrants up North a staggering $700 million. This is likely the money he had previously demanded from the federal government but was denied.
Adams claimed that these bus companies are responsible for covering the costs of caring for the migrants brought to his city. Few people will likely believe him. Adams appears to be pulling a desperate stunt to intimidate these bus companies. They will likely refuse to bus more migrants to the city after this.
Critics will likely say the courts will throw out this case, calling it frivolous. If Adams truly wanted funding to take care of illegal immigrants, he would have sued Texas. But he might not have standing to do so. Instead, he is attacking companies that are simply transporting people from one place to another.
Adams, like many other Democrat mayors, has frequently complained about the thousands of migrants who are flooding their cities. Yet none of them have listened to residents, who are demanding they fix the problem by deporting migrants. It appears Adams is intent on housing and feeding people who broke the law to enter the country.
- NYC Mayor Adams is suing the bus companies who brought migrants to his city.
- He is demanding $700 million from these companies to “care” for the illegal aliens.
- Adams is outraged that Texas is sending migrants to NY, despite bragging about it being a sanctuary city.
