Texas Governor Greg Abbott has taken a number of immigration measures (and here), including busing migrants from Texas to New York and Washington D.C. Those measures have produced controversy and have kept Abbott's immigration measures in the news.
As NPR reports, "New York City Mayor Eric Adams is criticizing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for sending busloads of migrants to the city, saying that Abbott `used innocent people as political pawns to manufacture a crisis.'"
