On Thursday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced that his administration had taken their fight against the bussing of illegal immigrants to the NY state Supreme Court, filing a $700 million lawsuit against 17 charter bus companies that facilitated the transport of undocumented newcomers from the southern border to the Big Apple.

Adams accused the companies of violating state law by failing to cover the cost of caring for the nearly 34,000 illegal immigrants brought in over the past 20 months, which has amounted to nearly three quarters of a billion dollars.

"New York City has, and will continue to do our part to manage this humanitarian crisis," Mayor Adams said, "but we cannot bear the costs of reckless political ploys from the state of Texas alone."

"Today, our administration filed a lawsuit against 17 companies that have taken part in Texas governor Greg Abbott's scheme to transport tens of thousands of migrants to New York City in an attempt to overwhelm our social services system."

"These companies have violated state law by not paying the cost of caring for these migrants, and that's why we're suing to recoup approximately $700 million already spent to care for migrants bussed here in the last two years by the state of Texas."

"Gov. Abbott's continued use of migrants as political pawns is not only chaotic and inhumane, but makes clear he puts politics over people. Today's lawsuit should serve as a warning to all those who break the law in this way," Adams said.

Under NY's Social Services Law, "[a]ny person who knowingly brings, or causes to be brought, a needy person from out of state into this state for the purpose of making him a public charge … shall be obligated to convey such person out of state or support him at his own expense."

The statute, city officials explained in a press release, "expressly authorizes the commissioner of the New York City Department of Social Services (DSS) to sue to recover those costs ... for all of the more than 33,600 migrants already transported from Texas to New York City, as well as all costs for migrants who continue to be sent to New York City in the future."

The companies named in the lawsuit are Buckeye Coach LLC, Carduan Tours LLC, Classic Elegance Coaches LLC, Coastal Crew Change Company LLC, Ejecutivo Enterprises Inc, El Paso United Charters LLC, Garcia and Garcia Enterprises Inc, JY Charter Bus Inc, Southwest Crew Change Company LLC, Transportes Regiomontanos Inc, VLP Charter LLC, Windstar Lines Inc, and Wynne Transportation LLC.
