Around 50 more migrants got off a bus outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington, D.C., Saturday.
Three more buses also arrived in New York City, as Texas continued to pressure sanctuary cities amid a surge of migrants crossing the southern border.
The D.C. bus carried people mostly from Venezuela, including a one-month-old baby. Aid workers quickly whisked the migrants away to a local shelter.
The transports come as the immigration issue has again rocketed to the forefront of national attention after planes carrying migrants arrived in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Harris has been tasked with dealing with the “root causes” of migration to the U.S.-Mexico border, which she said on Sunday was “secure.”
That statement received heavy pushback from Border Patrol agents, who say it is “far from secure.”
Two buses first arrived Thursday at the Naval Observatory in Washington, where Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff live.
Meanwhile in Massachusetts, the migrants sent to Martha’s Vineyard by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis were bussed Friday to Joint Base Cape Cod where Gov. Charlie Baker has set up a shelter.
The arrivals have drawn sharp reaction from the White House. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accused Republican governors of treating the migrants “like chattel.”
Others have said the transports have exposed hypocrisy on behalf of Democrats who support sanctuary city policies.
