Adams Unveils New Rules For Buses Transporting Illegal Immigrants

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) recently unveiled new rules for buses transporting illegal immigrants to the Big Apple.

On Dec. 27, 2023, Adams announced an executive order laying down new rules for bus companies carrying unlawful migrants to New York City. The order states that charter bus companies must only arrive in the city between 8:30 a.m. and noon from Monday to Friday.

The unlawful migrants can only be dropped off in specific locations across the city.

Adams said that any bus companies violating the order could result in a class B misdemeanor, potential fines and lawsuits leading the buses to be impounded.

“We really are saying to bus operators and companies, do not participate in Governor Abbott’s actions,” Adams said. “We want them to take the appropriate actions of being responsible by taking those actions during the hours we are laying out. Those asylum seekers on the buses, they will not be penalized any way at all. This does not impact those passengers on the buses.”

Adams’ executive order comes after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said he was responsible for an “unannounced and uncoordinated” flight carrying more than 180 illegal immigrants from El Paso, Texas, to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. The flight was eventually diverted to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania due to weather conditions.

“We had a plane with over 180 migrants depart for N.Y.C. yesterday — it was re-re-routed due to weather/ground stoppage in N.Y.C., and the migrants were bused the remaining way,” a spokesperson for the Texas governor said.

Responding to Abbott’s busing of the unlawful migrants to the Big Apple, a spokesperson for Adams called such an action “inhumane.”

“Last night — in another inhumane act of treating human beings like political pawns — Texas attempted to send an unaccounted and uncoordinated plane with migrants to New York City that was only diverted to Philadelphia due to extreme weather, but whose passengers were then transported here via bus,” the spokesperson said.

“Last week, 14 rogue buses from the State of Texas arrived in a single night, the highest number recorded by the Arrival Center,” the spokesperson continued.
