More buses carrying illegal immigrants arrived in Washington and New York from the US southern border on Saturday. Governors of some southern states organized the measure as a call to attention, but Vice President Kamala Harris called it a breach of duty.
In Washington, D.C., a bus dropped off about 50 illegal immigrants directly from Kamala Harris’ residence, most of them from Venezuela. Humanitarian staff immediately transferred the arrivals to a local shelter.
Three buses carrying illegal border crossers arrived in New York Saturday morning from Texas. The state’s deputy governor stated on a Fox News television broadcast that an emergency had arisen on the southern border of the United States. He added that they want to get that to the Democratic leaders, which is why they are sending more buses.
As MTI wrote, illegal immigrants this week first arrived on the East Coast by plane, flown in by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Fifty people came to Martha’s Vineyard, an island in Massachusetts near the northeastern coast of the United States that is a popular vacation spot for the Democratic elite: the property that former President Barack Obama bought for $12 million is also located there. The arrivals were moved to a Coast Guard land base on Friday, due to limited supply options.
“This is just the beginning,” DeSantis said at a news conference in Daytona Beach on Friday and that “every penny” of the $12 million in Florida’s budget is being used to resettle illegal immigrants.
Kamala Harris said in an interview Friday that DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott have fallen short of duty and are playing a game with immigrants.
A White House spokesperson said Friday that Republican state governors treat immigrants sent to Democratic-controlled cities as their “personal property.” Karen-Jean-Pierre described the event as a political spectacle with the sole aim of creating chaos and division.
As Vice President, Kamala Harris is tasked with ensuring border security and dealing with the root causes of illegal immigration in sending countries, mostly in Central American nations. Regarding the situation on the southern border, the vice president said in a television interview last Sunday that the border between the United States and Mexico is secured.
The governor of Texas, the leader of Arizona, and most recently Florida, have sent dozens of buses to New York, Washington and Chicago in recent weeks. According to the totals, the number of immigrants sent from the southern border to cities in the northeast, which accept themselves and call themselves places of refuge, has now exceeded 10,000. Texas Governor Greg Abbott argued that his state was exhausted and those in power in Washington And New York must face the reality of the border crisis.
