New York City has and will always do our part to manage this humanitarian crisis, but we cannot bear the cost of reckless political ploys from the state of Texas, alone, NY Mayor Eric Adams, via statement.

These companies have violated state law by not paying the cost of caring for these migrants, NY Mayor Eric Adams, via statement.

Adams is seeking $708 million from the bus companies as reimbursement for city costs to shelter, feed and provide health care to migrants.

Gov.

Abbott's continued use of migrants as political pawns is not only chaotic and inhumane, but makes clear he puts politics over people, NY Mayor Eric Adams, via statement.

Adams is also reportedly seeking the help of regional allies to stop Abbott.

I communicated with the governor of New Jersey last night.

We also spoke with the governor of Connecticut.

We've got to continue to reach out to our colleagues in the region, NY Mayor Eric Adams, via statement.
