A Texas bus company agreed Wednesday to stop transporting migrants to New York City and its suburbs amid a pending lawsuit, ABC7 reported.

Roadrunner Charters, along with 16 other carriers, is facing a lawsuit from NYC to recoup $700 million used in caring for the migrants who have arrived over the past two years, which the city opened in December of 2023.

The lawsuit takes the companies to task for acting on what the city calls Texas Gov. Abbott’s “bad faith” plan to send migrants in his state to New York.

“New York City continues to do our part as we lead the nation in managing this national humanitarian crisis, but reckless political games from the state of Texas will not be tolerated. I am pleased to see that Roadrunner – one of the bus companies we sued for taking part in Texas Governor Abbott’s scheme to transport tens of thousands of migrants to our city in an attempt to overwhelm our shelter system and shift costs to New York City – has agreed to halt the bussing of migrants into and around New York City while the lawsuit proceeds,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement.

“We call on all other bus companies involved in this suit to do the same.”
