On Tuesday, New York Mayor Eric Adams said he hoped Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott would not win in his reelection bid.
“For the good of America, we have to get him out of office,” Adams said.
Adams added that he is also considering sending buses of New Yorkers to Texas to campaign against the state’s Republican governor.
“I already called all of my friends in Texas and told them how to cast their vote,” Adams added.
Adams’ displeasure against Abbott came from the latter’s decision to send busloads of asylum seekers from Texas to New York in a political ploy.
On the same day, Abbott said he would continue sending migrant-filled buses to New York City and Washington, D.C. until President Biden cracks down on immigration at America’s southwestern border.
While Adams supports the asylum seekers, he condemns Abbott, accusing him of creating a crisis and using the migrants as political pawns.
Officials in New York said there are more than 4,000 asylum seekers in the Big Apple.
