It was 6 a.m. and the buses from Texas had yet to arrive. But a handful of ambulances and police officers were already waiting on the street. An hour later, empty Metropolitan Transportation Authority buses would be lining up to transport migrants across New York City. Volunteers unloaded boxes at the makeshift “triage center” in the lobby of the Port Authority’s bus station. Manuel Castromayor Eric Adamsthe Commissioner for Immigration Affairs and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, whose district covers Upper Manhattan and part of the Bronx, arrived before 7 a.m. Around 8 a.m., 80 asylum-seeking migrants got off the two buses from the Lone Star State, one taken by Mr. Abbott from the border and the other from the city of El Paso. Messrs. Castro and Espaillat shook hands with everyone and said: “Bienvenidos a Nueva York.”
Since early August, Gov. Gregory Abbott has sent busloads of asylum seekers from the Texas border to sanctuary cities – New York, Chicago, Washington and other places that have policies preventing local law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal agencies in enforcing immigration law. This week the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis surpassed Mr. Abbott by flying a small plane full of Venezuelan migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
