Around 50 more migrants got off a bus outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington, DC, 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 DC 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 plans carrying migrants arrived in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

Harris accused Republican governors of a “dereliction of duty” in a Vice News interview, and Emhoff called the arrivals “shameful” and a “political stunt.”
When asked by Vice what the “solution” to the migrant crisis is, Harris mentioned nothing about border security. Instead, she blamed former President Donald Trump, saying his administration “decimated” the immigration system. “So we have been spending in the last 18 months an incredible amount of time and work and resources to reconstruct that system,” she said.
Harris indicated that a bill providing a pathway to citizenship for those in the country illegally would also be part of the solution, as well as billions to help migrants stay in their home countries.
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.”
