Greg Abbott finds 'loophole' around New York City busing rules

I told you last week that the mayor of New York City had put limits on busloads of illegals coming from the border in hopes of slowing them down, threatening to impound buses that disobey his orders.

But that hasn’t stopped Abbott from sending them. It was just reported by Fox News that Abbott is now sending the buses to New Jersey, just on the other side of the Hudson. And the illegals are easily finding their way into New York City.

From Fox News:

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s office has reportedly confirmed that the Garden State is being used as a “transit point” for migrant buses in response to New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ new executive order attempting to regulate how so-called asylum seekers continue arriving in the Big Apple.

“Our Administration has tracked the recent arrival of a handful of buses of migrant families at various NJ TRANSIT train stations,” Murphy’s spokesperson Tyler Jones said in a statement reported by Politico. “New Jersey is primarily being used as a transit point for these families — all or nearly all of them continued with their travels en route to their final destination of New York City. We are closely coordinating with our federal and local partners on this matter, including our colleagues across the Hudson.”

The mayors of Secaucus and Fanwood, New Jersey, have both reported the arrivals of migrant buses to train stations in their communities. Trenton’s mayor, Reed Gusciora, told Politico that NJ Transit officials informed his city of buses of people arriving at Trenton’s train station stop, but claimed it was unclear if those individuals would be migrants.

Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli on Sunday accused the migrant buses of bypassing New York City’s executive order through a “loophole.”

Texas mayors don’t get any warning from the federal government when migrants are being released into their cities. The same should be true for these blue state mayors who are running sanctuary cities and Abbott is making that happen.
