Texas governor sends two busloads of illegal immigrants to VP Kamala Harris’s residence

258

Two busloads of migrants from the US-Mexico border has arrived outside Vice President Kamala Harris’s home in Washington, DC on Thursday in the latest move by Republican governors opposed to President Joe Biden’s immigration policies.

“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,” Mr Abbott tweeted

Abbott also confirmed that the buses from Texas arrived at VP’s compound.

About two dozen people stood outside the compound on Thursday morning clutching plastic bags of their belongings. They were then moved to a local church.

The move from the Republican governor comes a day after Florida Governor Ron Desantis also sent a group of immigrants to the wealthy island of Martha’s Vineyard.

Many migrants who cross the US border illegally from Mexico are temporarily shielded from deportation to seek asylum in immigration court or released on humanitarian role, once they are freed by US authorities.

Texas and Arizona have already sent thousands of immigrants to Democratic strongholds such as New York City, Chicago and Washington. Leaders of the two border states said those areas should take more migrants because they encouraged immigration by failing to enforce immigration laws.
