Democrats have criticized the drop off of migrants on Christmas Eve outside Vice President Kamala Harris’s home in Washington, D.C.
The criticism is aimed at Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) for dropping buses of migrants off in below-freezing temperatures on Christmas Eve.
Abbott’s decision to drop migrants off on Christmas Eve is the latest maneuver in his undertaking to draw attention to the migrant crisis along the Southern Border that is bleeding border towns’ resources.
Abbott hopes his efforts will prompt the Biden administration to improve its border and immigration policies but will likely only stoke a brewing feud.
Saturday’s drop-off of migrants isn’t the first time the Texas Governor has sent busloads of Migrants to the Vice President’s residence in Washington, D.C., but the timing comes as Title 42 hangs in the balance.
Abbott’s decision also doesn’t seem to inspire much action from Washington other than condemnation.
Abdullah Hasan, assistant White House Press Secretary, censured Abbott’s actions, describing them as the Texas Governor had “abandoned children on the side of the road,” calling it a “cruel, dangerous stunt.”
According to ABC7, the three busloads of Migrants were dropped off outside the Naval Observatory — the Vice President’s official residence — on Saturday as temperatures hovered in the teens.
Video from ABC7’s report showed migrants wrapped up in blankets, with one migrant wearing shorts.
The Migrant Solidarity Mutual Aid Network intervened, taking the group to a church for assistance and telling ABC 7 that Abbott was behind the Christmas Eve drop-off.
