Two buses carrying 96 illegal migrants, mostly young men with several women, arrived in New York City Saturday from Texas.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sent more than 1,500 migrants to the Big Apple in a bid to draw attention to the ongoing immigration crisis on the southern border.
New York officials said this week that the city is using 14 hotels to provide housing to the new arrivals.
"Texas is filling the gaps left in Biden's absence at our border," Abbott wrote on social media after the Saturday buses arrived. "We've made over 19,000 arrests, seized over 335.5M lethal fentanyl doses, & sent over 7,400 migrants on buses to DC and over 1,500 to NYC. While Biden ignores the crisis, Texas steps up."
