Texas Lt. Gov. Patrick: Migrants Will 'Keep Coming' to Blue Cities

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick warned on Monday that if the White House and left-leaning media don't address the surging influx of migrants at the southern border, then "big blue city" mayors should expect busloads of them to show up in their cities.

"Look out your window, you might see a bus coming to you one day in the future," Patrick told Fox News. "We're desperate. ... We've got to make this a story."

But recently, New York City's Mayor Eric Adams met Patrick's threats with similar assertions. Adams maintained that he would send busloads of New Yorkers to campaign against Gov. Greg Abbott in his upcoming election.

But Patrick, during his interview, insisted that Adams was making the issue "political" and warned that his rhetoric might "spike" a turnout of Republican voters in the upcoming midterm.

"Don't threaten Texas," Patrick added.

The Texas lieutenant governor then pointed to Adams acting hypocritical as New York is considered a pro-sanctuary city. Recently, New York City passed a law allowing non-citizens to vote, but a judge struck it down in June. Still, the New York Post reported that left-leaning leaders are trying to appeal the judge's order.

"We've had now 400,000 people in the Del Rio sector in the last year," Patrick continued. "The population of that town is 36,000. That would be like us sending 80 million to New York ... if we can put pressure on all these Democrat mayors around the country, maybe they'll pick up the phone and call Joe Biden and say the border is not secure."

Patrick then took on the Biden administration, stating that it supports open borders because they want to "bring in people to take over the country."

"We're now on pace in his first term to be over 8 million people here illegally. Not counting the gotaways, just the ones we apprehend. That's the entire population of New York City coming to America. We will be at 15% or more population in the next five to 10 years in this country of people who are here illegally."
