Greg Abbott says Eric Adam should sue Biden instead of bus companies to end migration influx

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott predicted New York City Mayor Eric Adams is going “to lose badly” in court after the city filed a $708 million lawsuit against 17 charter bus and transportation companies involved in transporting migrants to New York City from Texas.

“The lawsuit is completely legally baseless, and the mayor is going to lose very badly for this very specific reason. And that is: Everybody who is bussed to or are planed to New York is already authorized by the Biden administration to be within the United States legally,” Abbott told Fox News’ Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday.”

Abbott, who called the New York suit a “political statement,” argued that the Biden administration’s immigration policies give migrants “the legal right to travel wherever they want to the United States.” 

“The lawsuit by the mayor violates the United States Constitution in several respects, and the mayor is going to lose and lose badly and I hope he is forced to pay the legal fees for the cost of anybody having to defend against that lawsuit,” he said.

Adams announced a lawsuit against the 17 bus companies last week, citing “reckless political ploys from the state of Texas.” Abbott is not listed as a defendant in that case.

“New York City has and will always do our part to manage this humanitarian crisis, but we cannot bear the costs of reckless political ploys from the state of Texas alone,” Adams said in a statement. “Today, we are taking legal action against 17 companies that have taken part in Texas Governor Abbott’s scheme to transport tens of thousands of migrants to New York City in an attempt to overwhelm our social services system.”

Instead of suing bus companies, Abbott said Adams should sue the Biden administration for the influx of migrants flooding the city. 

“He needs to be suing Joe Biden, not these bus companies. Because it’s Joe Biden and Joe Biden’s policies that’s causing the massive multi-million influx into the United States that leads to many of them wanting to go to New York,” he said.
