For several months, governors of border states have been sending migrant buses to the home of immigration czar Vice President Kamala Harris.
On Thursday morning, another bus arrived at Harris’ home in the ritzy northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C.
The bus contained about 50 men, women and children arriving in D.C. from South America via Texas, according to NBC 4 Washington.
The nonprofit SAMU First Reponse greeted the migrants with plastic bags full of necessities, NBC 4 Washington reported.
“Given the migration crisis at our nation’s capital, SAMU First Response is delivering humanitarian assistance to asylum seekers arriving from Texas and Arizona,” the nonprofit said on its website.
According to national NBC News, this bus may be traveling onward from Washington. After all, previous buses have traveled from Texas or Arizona toward so-called “sanctuary cities” like New York.

Under the Biden-Harris administration’s Homeland Security Department, it’s legal to show up at the border, request asylum and then wait in the U.S. during the application’s processing period.
However, governors of border states are visibly struggling to accommodate the sheer number of asylum seekers. They have called on large cities to step up.

Some liberals have dismissed the migrant buses as political theater. Yet, Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, will reach his term limit next year, and he expressly declined to run for Senate this year. He has little use for political theater.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, has defended the busing spectacles. He’s hoping for Harris to pay more attention to this issue.
For D.C.’s part, the District Council voted this week to create an Office of Migrant Services for receiving migrants, providing transportation and administering emergency medicine.
Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, has called D.C.’s situation a “humanitarian crisis,” and she intends to manage the Office of Migrant Services. However, D.C.’s local actions often die in the federal bureaucracy.
