(Headline USA) Two buses full of migrants arrived in front of Vice President Kamala Harris’s Washington, D.C. residence on Thursday as Texas resumed shipping migrants to Democrat sanctuary cities amidst the influx of illegal immigrants pouring across the southern border.
More than 40 men, women and children were on the first bus, which stopped just outside the Naval Observatory, and 30 more were on the second bus, according to NBC Washington. Many on the bus reportedly said they were from Venezuela.
Texas has sent multiple migrant buses to Harris’s residence over the past year in an effort to draw national attention to the border crisis. Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, said he intends to continue sending the buses to liberal parts of the country “until Biden secures the border.”
“Until President Biden steps up and does his job, Texas will continue busing migrants to sanctuary cities to provide relief to our overwhelmed border towns,” said Andrew Mahaleris, a spokesperson for Abbott.
Abbott said he specifically chose Harris’s residence as a drop-off destination because of her role as the Biden administration’s “border czar.”
“[Harris is] the border czar, and we felt that if she won’t come down to see the border, if President Biden will not come down and see the border, we will make sure they see it firsthand,” he said back in September.
The buses arrived in Washington, D.C. hours ahead of the end of Title 42, a pandemic policy that allowed border officials to immediately expel migrants who did not qualify for asylum.
Migrants have been surging across the southern border over the past week in anticipation of the policy’s end, with Border Patrol apprehending more than 10,000 illegals per day.
Meanwhile, Harris, who was appointed by President Joe Biden to solve the border crisis, has no plans as of right now of visiting the border or even addressing the migrant crisis, according to her schedule.
