WASHINGTON (AP) – Two buses of migrants from the US-Mexico border were unloaded near the home of Vice President Kamala Harris in residential Washington on Thursday morning in a bitter political battle over the Biden administration’s immigration policies.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is moving migrants from Texas into cities with a Democratic mayor as part of a political strategy this year because he claims his state has too many border arrivals. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has also adopted the policy, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has also recently joined the act. It was first dreamed by former President Donald Trump.

Abbott tweeted that he sent incoming buses on Thursday: “We are sending migrants back to their backyards to ask the Biden administration to do their jobs and secure the border.”

About two dozen men and women stood outside the US Naval Observatory, holding clear plastic bags of their belongings at the border, before heading to a nearby church. Harris’ office did not immediately comment.

After asylum-seeking migrants cross the US-Mexico border, they spend time in a US Customs and Border Protection facility along the border until they are released into the US to await their cases, usually Is. Republicans say Biden’s policies encourage immigrants to disappear into America; Democrats argue that the Trump-era policy of forcing migrants in Mexico to wait for their asylum cases was inhumane.

DeSantis flew two immigrants on Wednesday over Martha’s Vineyard. And last week, Abbott sent about 75 migrants to Chicago.

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a public emergency last week over the continued arrival of migrant buses. The district had previously requested the assistance of the National Guard to help prevent a “growing humanitarian crisis” prompted by the arrival of thousands of migrants, but the Pentagon declined the request.
