Migrants deserted in front of Kamala Harris’ house on Christmas Eve

Washington.- Recently, three busloads of migrant families from Texas arrived near the home of Vice President Kamala Harris in record cold on Christmas Eve.

Texas officials have not confirmed their involvement, but the bus distribution is in line with previous actions by border state governors to call attention to the Biden administration’s immigration policies.

According to Tatiana Laborde, general director of SAMU First Response, an aid agency working with the city of Washington to serve thousands of migrants, 110 to 130 people were on the buses that arrived in front of the vice president’s residence this Saturday night. that has been abandoned in recent months.

Laborde said local organizers expected the buses to arrive on Sunday, but learned on Saturday that the group would arrive in Washington early. Small children were also among the passengers.

Some wore T-shirts despite the minus 9 degree temperature. According to the Washington Post, it was the coldest Christmas Eve ever recorded in Washington.

Laborde said staff had blankets ready for people who arrived on Christmas Eve and were taken to waiting buses to take them to a local church. A local restaurant chain donated dinner and breakfast.

Most of the arrivals were headed for other destinations and were expected to make a short stay in Washington.

The office of Gov. Greg Abbott did not respond to a request for comment Sunday morning. His office said last week that Texas has provided bus rides for more than 15,000 people in Washington, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia since April.

Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, both Republicans, have been strident critics of President Joe Biden’s handling of the US-Mexico border, where thousands try to cross daily, many seeking asylum. Officials on both sides of the border are calling for emergency aid to set up shelters and services for the migrants, some of whom are sleeping on the streets.
