WASHINGTON, D.C.—Three busloads of migrants sent from Texas by Governor Greg Abbott were dropped off outside Naval Observatory Hill, the official residence of Vice President Kamala Harris, on Christmas Eve in a move to pressure President Joe Biden into deploying authorizes. Federal forces on the border with Mexico.

“You and your administration must stop lying that the border is secure and instead immediately deploy federal assets to solve serious problems. You must fulfill those duties before more innocent lives are lost,” Abbott wrote. Must obey what the United States Constitution requires you to accomplish and secure the southern border.

Immigrant families were left on the streets in sub-zero temperatures as the northeastern United States and other parts of the country face a freezing cold wave with record low temperatures. Images from local television station abc7 showed some of the migrants were not dressed appropriately for the cold. One of the migrants was seen wearing shorts.

“It shows the brutality of Governor Abbott and his insistence on continuing to send people by the truckload (…). They don’t have coats, they don’t have clothes for this type of weather and they’re freezing , ”said activist Amy Fischer, from Red de Solidaridad Matua con los Migrantes. The migrants were taken to a church.

More than 9,000 migrants of all nationalities have been deported by Republican governors to the US capital and other cities.

The Department of Homeland Security warned immigrants to avoid trying to enter the country without authorization because they would be subject to removal under Title 42.
