New York Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday greeted another bus of migrants who arrived on the East Coast sent by Texas, saying their treatment by the state’s governor has been “horrific.”

A first bus of about 50 migrants arrived on Friday, with Texas Governor Greg Abbott saying he was testing New York’s commitment to being a sanctuary city. Abbott also said more buses would be sent.
