More migrants left outside Kamala Harris’ home in freezing weather on Christmas EveThank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Several busloads of migrants were left outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington, D.C., on Christmas Eve in 18-degree weather late Saturday.
Two buses were initially taken to local shelters, according to an administration official. More buses arrived outside the vice president’s residence later Saturday night. A CNN crew saw migrants being taken down, with some migrants wearing only T-shirts in the freezing weather. They were given blankets and put on another bus that went to a local church.
Amy Fisher, a volunteer with the Migrant Solidarity Network, which has been receiving migrants sent to D.C. since the spring, said her organization was prepared for Saturday night’s arrivals. Busloads of migrants have been arriving in Washington every week since April.
“The D.C. community has welcomed buses from Texas every time they come since April. Christmas Eve and freezing cold weather are no different,” she said. “We are always here and welcome people with open arms.”
It is not clear who is responsible for sending the migrants to the Naval Observatory, although CNN reported earlier this year that Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent busloads of migrants north. including to a location outside Harris’ home.
Abbott is one of at least three Republican governors who have taken credit for busing or flying migrants north this year to protest the Biden administration’s immigration policies. He previously confirmed in September that his state had sent the buses to Harris’ residence at this time.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misidentified the person who said her group was prepared for the arriving migrants. It was Amy Fisher, a volunteer with the Migrant Solidarity Network.
