Two migrant buses from Del Rio, Texas, arrived near Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., Thursday morning. Between 75 and 100 people who were picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, were sent by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
The group includes migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico. Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview.
Video shows the immigrants standing around on the sidewalk outside the Naval Observatory. The immigrants were mostly from and one migrant said the border is “open.”
Harris said Sunday in an interview that the border is “secure” but that the U.S. has a “broken immigration system.”
“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do, the first request we made: pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship,” Harris said. “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”
Abbott’s move comes after Florida governor Ron DeSantis sent two planes of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday, keeping his pledge to retaliate after the Biden administration sent planes of immigrants to Florida in November.
