Thursday morning, Texas Governor Greg Abbott delivered another busload of illegal immigrants to the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris.
The majority of the immigrants on the bus were from Venezuela.
Gary Grumbach of NBC News posted video of allegedly unlawful immigrants exiting a bus in front of Harris’ residence in Washington, D.C.
This morning, a group of about 30 migrants – men, women and children – arrived outside the Vice President’s residence here in Washington DC on a bus sent from Texas.

The vehicle was laden with men, women, and children, who were greeted by SAMU First Response and Mutual Aid volunteers upon delivery.
The immigrants were then carried onto another charter vehicle and transported to a “place of refuge,” as reported by NBC News.
Texas has not sent a bus to Washington in months.
Without a doubt, the gift served as a reminder to the vice president that when Title 42 expires, Washington, D.C. will experience the same effects as the border communities.
It is not Abbott’s first time filling buses.
The Texas governor tweeted on Wednesday that the state had transported more than 17,000 migrants to “sanctuary cities.”
Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia are included.
“The reason we are busing these migrants across the country, is because small little towns on the border, like Del Rio and Eagle Pass, they have no capacity to deal with the number of people coming across the border.
“And we have to relieve the congestion in those small communities and bus them to larger communities — by the way, communities that are sanctuary cities,” Abbott said in a Fox News interview featured in his tweet.
Texas has bused over 17,000 migrants to sanctuary cities:
▪️ Over 9,200 to DC
▪️ Over 5,700 to NYC
▪️ Over 1,600 to Chicago
▪️ Over 925 to Philadelphia

No matter how many buses Texas sends to Washington, D.C., they will pale in comparison to the duress that Brownsville, El Paso, and other Texas border cities are already experiencing.
But even Harris may find it difficult to laugh at the crisis that will unfurl when Title 42 expires on Thursday at 11:59 p.m. ET.
