Two buses loaded with migrants sent by Texas Governor Greg Abbott carrying between 75 and 100 people arrived outside the home of Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, DC.
The Naval Observatory, the vice president’s designated residence since 1974, is located in northwest Washington, DC.
The migrants were picked up in Eagle Pass, which is situated along the border with Mexico.
Fox News Digital reported that the migrants came from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia, and Mexico.
Fox also reported that some of the migrants said they believe the border is open.
Representative Tony Gonzales, a Texas Republican, criticized Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Thursday for busing migrants to Vice President Kamala Harris’ house.
People who DO NOT qualify for asylum should be sent back to their country of origin not bused around the US as political capital. https://t.co/Fuvrs6zEJr

“This morning, two Texas buses of migrants arrived at the Naval Observatory in DC. VP Harris claims our border is ‘secure’ & denies the crisis. We’re sending migrants to her backyard to call on the Biden Administration to do its job & secure the border,” Abbott tweeted on Thursday.

Since April, the Texas governor has already sent out dozens of buses with migrants to Democratic cities– Washington D.C., New York City and Chicago– in an effort to prove that the Biden administration is mishandling the southern border, which Abbott says is burdening his state. –Newsweek
