When asked on CNN about GOP governors busing illegal aliens to other parts of the country, including New York, in recent months, Adams claimed they are engaging in “the erosion of basic human rights.”
“Well, I think it’s a message for the entire country,” Adams told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday. “You see, this is their way of covering up what many people have been really concerned about the erosion of basic human rights. We’re seeing crisis calls for coordination.”
In the interview, Adams did not make mention of the Biden administration’s immigration policies. Republicans say that the White House’s shift on immigration has triggered a massive surge in illegal immigration, and they have no choice but to transport them to other parts of the country.
The administration, which oversees U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, is the only U.S. entity that has the ability to deport people. Governors do not have such authority.
After President Joe Biden took office last year, he immediately moved to scrap several key, Trump-era immigration rules. They included ending construction of the former president’s signature border wall, reissuing provisions established under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and rolling back interior immigration enforcement priorities that were implemented by former President Donald Trump.
Adams confirmed to CNN that six more buses filled with illegal immigrants from Texas arrived in New York City on Sunday morning. The mayor said that the city is stretched thin and cannot deal with the influx.
“We received a minimum of six buses early this morning. Over 11,000 individuals, asylum seekers and migrants have come to the city already,” Adams told Tapper. “It is time for us to coordinate this humanitarian crisis that our country is facing.”
For months, Abbott has said that his administration as well as Texas border towns have been overwhelmed by illegal immigrants, adding that the state doesn’t have the resources to deal with them.
A report issued last month from the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that 18 months after Biden took office, more than 4.9 million illegal aliens have crossed into the United States. It noted that it’s roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Ireland.
“In that time, the Biden administration has blamed an unprecedented surge of illegal immigration on all sorts of external factors, except their own sabotage of our nation’s immigration laws. The endless flow of illegal aliens and the incursion of lethal narcotics pouring across our border will not end until this administration demonstrates a willingness to enforce our laws,” said Dan Stein, the head of FAIR.
Last week, both Abbott and fellow Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis drew headlines when they transported illegal immigrants to Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence in Washington as well as Martha’s Vineyard, respectively.
DeSantis argued that the move to transport the aliens to the Massachusetts island was necessary because Florida isn’t a “sanctuary” state. Hours later, the governor of Massachusetts activated the National Guard and transported the some 50 illegal immigrants to a military base in Cape Cod.
