(RepublicanWire.org) – New York City is paying for bus tickets to the Canadian border for migrants who want to flee the Big Apple. The New York Post not only reported on the issue Sunday night, but they also confirmed it with top government officials.
Seems southern border states like Texas, frustrated with the flood of people coming across the Mexican-American border, have been sending busloads of people to progressive sanctuary cities. It’s a move that’s attracted widespread criticism from people saying it shows Texas doesn’t care about the plight of migrants and is inhumane.
Now it turns out N.Y.C. is doing the same thing by passing the problem on to Canada.
“Mayor Eric Adams’s administration pays various companies that run programs for migrants that include ‘re-ticketing’ so they can travel to other cities, a City Hall source said,” the Post reported Sunday.
Venezuelan Raymond Peña told the Post on Monday that he and his family received free bus tickets at Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal and said they were “going to Canada for a better quality of life.”
Susy Sanchez Solzarno, who emigrated from Peru, told the Post that she decided to head to Canada after one of her daughter’s saw a video of other migrants making the trip on TikTok, and said that she spent about two weeks selling candy on the New York City subway in order to fund their move.
“I wanted to live in New York because I thought it would be a better future for my daughters,” she told the newspaper. “But as the days went by, I saw insecurity, many homeless people, many people who shout and are disrespectful, and many people on drugs.”
She added, “I am going to Canada for the safety and future of my girls. I only ask God that everything goes well and that Canada is not like the United States.”
