N.Y. Mayor Adams Suing Texas Bus Companies for $708M

By    |   Thursday, 04 January 2024 02:59 PM EST

New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ administration is suing 17 Texas charter bus companies for $708 million for transporting thousands of illegal immigrants to the city.

The suit “seeks to recoup the hundreds of millions of dollars incurred to care for all these individuals, costs moving forward for any of those migrants still in New York City’s care, and costs for all those who are transported to New York City from Texas in the future as part of [Texas Gov. Greg] Abbott’s plan.”

“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,” said Adams. “These companies have violated state law by not paying the cost of caring for these migrants. … Governor Abbott’s continued use of migrants as political pawns is not only chaotic and inhumane but makes clear he puts politics over people. Today’s lawsuit should serve as a warning to all those who break the law in this way.”

Adams’ office said more than 33,600 migrants have been sent to New York from Texas since the spring of 2022.

The announcement comes a day after the Department of Justice sued the state of Texas and Abbott to block a slate of new immigration penalties from taking effect.

Adams last week issued an executive order aimed at restricting Abbott’s migrant busing, mandating that the charter vehicles announce their arrival 32 hours in advance and only drop off migrants between 8:30 a.m. and noon on weekdays.

New York City is receiving nearly 4,000 migrants each week, according to Adams’ administration.
