Another bus drops off immigrants in front of Vice President Kamala Harris’ DC home. Fox News said that more buses with illegal immigrants arrived in Washington, D.C., and New York City on Thursday morning. One of the buses dropped off people near the home of Vice President Kamala Harris.

Since a few months ago, Republican governors in border states like Texas and Arizona have hired buses to take asylum seekers north and east to sanctuary cities and other parts of the country while their asylum claims are being processed. The migrants go there on their own, often to meet up with family or friends who are already there.

Critics, on the other hand, have said that the governors are using migrants as “political pawns” or even “kidnapping” them. GOP officials say that President Joe Biden’s government isn’t doing enough to secure the border. They also say that sending migrant buses to cities run by Democrats is a way to protest and show what daily life is like in border towns.

This is not the first time migrants have shown up outside Harris’ home at the Naval Observatory in the nation’s capital. The Texas Tribune reported on Friday that the office of Gov. Greg Abbott said that 8,000 migrants had been sent to D.C. since the policy was announced in April. Abbott started sending the migrants to the vice president’s house after she said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the border was safe, even though a record 2 million people are expected to cross the border this year.

Abbott said earlier this week, “The Biden-Harris Administration keeps ignoring and denying the historic crisis at our southern border, which has put Texas communities in danger and made them too busy for almost two years.” “Our so-called “border czar,” Vice President Kamala Harris, has never even been to the border to see for herself how the open-border policies she helped create have affected people. She has even gone so far as to say that the border is “secure.”

Democratic leaders in cities that are taking in migrants have criticized the governors who sent them there and asked for help from the federal government to house them. In July, Muriel Bowser, the mayor of Washington, D.C., called what was going on in her city a “humanitarian crisis” and asked for the National Guard to be called up.

Last month, Bowser said that there was a public emergency because of the buses of migrants from Texas and Arizona. With her announcement, emergency funds will be used to help the migrants and the Office of Migrant Services will be set up. Fox News said that the office will help migrants by giving them temporary housing, medical care, transportation, and other services.

Thursday morning, two more buses full of migrants arrived in New York City. Since May, more than 16,000 illegal immigrants have been sent to New York from border states, according to the office of Mayor Eric Adams. On Monday, the mayor criticized both the “far right” and the “far left” for not being able to solve the problem of migrants.

Adams also said that tents would be put up in different parts of the city where Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Centers would be built. Local news station WNYW-TV also said that Adams is close to making a deal with cruise ships to house migrants.

On Tuesday, Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York asked for a “federal solution.”

She told Bloomberg News in an interview, “Let’s look at federal facilities and federal staff to help out the city and the state.”
