Two migrant buses from the US-Mexico border dropped off near the home of Vice President Kamala Harris | American News


Two migrant buses from the US-Mexico border have been dropped off near the home of Vice President Kamala Harris, as three Republican governors continue to use the tactic to wage a bitter political battle.

Texas Governor Greg Abbot has ferried migrants from Texas to cities with Democratic mayors as part of a political strategy, as he says there are too many arrivals across the border to his state .

The tactic was first dreamed up by Donald Trump and has since been taken up by prominent Republican and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as well as Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.

Governor Abbott tweeted that he dispatched the buses that arrived on Thursday, saying, “We are sending migrants to his backyard to call on the Biden administration to do their job and secure the border.”

About two dozen men and women were seen outside the US Naval Observatory at dawn, holding clear plastic bags containing their belongings carried with them across the border, before heading to a church neighbor.

After asylum-seeking migrants cross the border, they spend time at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility along the border until they are usually released back into the United States for wait for their cases to be settled.

Republicans say President Joe Biden’s policies encourage migrants to disappear into the United States, while Democrats argue the Trump-era policy of forcing migrants to wait out their asylum claims in Mexico was inhuman.

The White House on Thursday said the recent transport of migrants by bus is alarming and said they had been misled about their destination.
