Just days after Title 42, the pandemic-era law that enabled officers to swiftly remove asylum seekers at the border, was repealed, Texas on Sunday reportedly sent additional refugees to Vice President Harris’s mansion in Washington.
On Sunday night, which was Mother’s Day, at 8:30 p.m., video from a nearby TV station saw migrants stepping off the bus in front of the Naval Observatory.
The migrants, according to the local broadcaster, originated in the South Texas city of Del Rio.
As soon as Title 42 expired last week, migrants began to appear in the area of the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) tweeted at the time that the state had bused More than 9,200 of the almost 17,000 migrants transported by bus from Texas to the sanctuary towns ended up in Washington.
Abbott informed the mayors of a number of towns, including New York City, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., earlier this month that he intended to resume busing migrants to those areas.
Abbott has already deployed busloads of migrants to Harris’s mansion in Washington, D.C., doing so in September and on Christmas Eve.
