WASHINGTON: Two migrant buses from Del Rio, Texas, arrived near Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., Thursday morning.
Between 75 and 100 people who were picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, were sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. The group includes migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico. Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview.
This latest convoy of buses arrived just hours after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis followed through on his similar promise to drop off illegal immigrants in progressive states, sending two planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday.
A representative from a non-governmental organization called Sanctuary DMV showed up and told the migrants they would be going to a local church.
Marla Bustillos of Sanctuary DMV told Fox News Digital they were “at Union Station since 6 in the morning waiting” and “just heard 20 minutes ago that the drop-off was this one.”
“We’ve already set up a church and a location — a safe location for them to tell us where they need to go next, where they have relatives,” she continued.
The ongoing relocation of incoming illegal border-crossers has become a popular method of protest for southern states overrun with migrants that are feeling ignored by President Biden’s administration.
