In a perplexing turn of events, New York City Mayor Eric Adams has suggested that the arrival of approximately 10,000 illegal immigrants in the city could lead to its collapse. While the logic behind this assertion may seem questionable, it aligns with the often perplexing policies of the Biden administration.
The Biden administration is contemplating a new approach regarding illegal immigrants crossing into Texas. This proposed policy would require them to remain in Texas while awaiting asylum screenings. This decision has triggered outrage from Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Texas has bused over 15,900 migrants to sanctuary cities.
⁃ Over 8,900 to DC
⁃ Over 4,900 to NYC
⁃ Over 1,500 to Chicago
⁃ Over 630 to Philadelphia
We’re providing relief to local communities overwhelmed by President Biden’s open border policies.

Glenn Beck talked about the issue with Abbott. He characterized this policy proposal as “the biggest game-changing border policy” he has witnessed in his nearly 50-year broadcasting career. Governor Abbott agreed and highlighted the irony that sanctuary cities are now struggling to fulfill their promises.
While some criticize Governor Abbott for transporting migrants to other states, he pointed out that the Biden administration has engaged in similar actions. Approximately 90-95% of migrants who enter Texas do not stay within the state, a trend that could change if the Biden administration mandates their retention.
Governor Abbott believes this proposed policy is “payback” for Texas taking control of border operations and effectively repelling individuals attempting to cross illegally into Mexico. He contends that the Biden administration appears to hold a vendetta against the state of Texas.
Under President Trump the state experienced its lowest levels of illegal immigration in four decades. However, under President Biden’s open border policies the state has witnessed an unprecedented and dramatic surge in illegal immigration.
Governor Abbott remains resolute, asserting that the Biden administration’s contemplated policy shift is legally unsound and that Texas will oppose it vigorously. If the system becomes overworked, overused or abused they lose the capacity to care for those seeking asylum.
The ongoing debate over immigration policies highlights American politics’ complexities and deep divides. Texas Governor Abbott’s steadfast opposition to the potential policy shift underscores the state’s commitment to protecting its borders and maintaining control over immigration processes.
As the nation grapples with the consequences of these decisions, it prompts Americans to reflect on the broader implications of border security, federal-state dynamics and the ongoing quest for a cohesive national immigration strategy.
