50 migrants arrive at Kamala Harris’s house, and three buses to New York City.
After claiming the border was secure, Kamala Harris blamed Republican governors.
Around 50 migrants were dropped off at Vice President Kamala Harris’ house in Washington, DC.
As migrants crossed the southern border in droves, Texas continued to pressure sanctuary cities.
A one-month-old baby was among the passengers on the bus in D.C., which was mostly filled with Venezuelans.
A local shelter was quickly arranged for the migrants by aid workers.
Earlier this week, planes carrying migrants arrived on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, again bringing the immigration issue to the forefront of national attention.
According to Harris, the U.S.-Mexico border is “secure” thanks to efforts to solve the “root causes” of migration.
The Border Patrol reacted strongly to that statement, saying it was “far from secure.”.
Harris and the Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff live at the Naval Observatory, where they were greeted by two busses.
Emhoff called the arrivals “shameful” and a “political stunt” and Harris accused Republican governors of a “dereliction of duty.”
When Harris was questioned by Vice News about his plan for dealing with the migrant crisis, she refused to say anything specific.
The former president blamed his administration instead, claiming it “decimated” the immigration system.
“We’ve spent a lot of time, energy, and resources rebuilding that system.”
According to Harris, migrants in the country illegally can also be granted citizenship as part of the solution, along with billions of dollars to help them stay there.
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has set up a shelter at Joint Base Cape Cod for migrants sent to Martha’s Vineyard by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
White House officials have reacted sharply to the arrivals.
The Republican governors treated migrants “like chattel,” according to Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary.
Some have said that the transports exposed Democrats’ hypocrisy.
