Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent Vice President Kamala Harris a busload of migrants for Mother’s Day on Sunday. The migrants had been released by the Biden-Harris administration after crossing the border from Mexico into Texas.
A bus carrying dozens of migrants from the Texas border town of Del Rio arrived at the official residence of Kamala Harris — the U.S. Naval Observatory — on Sunday evening, ABC 15 WJLA reported. A group of local volunteers arrived and took the migrants to a church for processing.

In a tweet on Sunday, Governor Abbott sharply criticized the vice president for her lack of action in addressing the crisis at the border in her role as “Border Czar.” The governor recently appointed his own Border Czar, retired Border Patrol supervisor Mike Banks.

Governor Abbott stepped up the busing of migrants to the sanctuary cities of Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC after tens of thousands of migrants crossed the border into Texas during the two weeks leading up to the end of Title 42.
“Governor Abbott launched the border bus mission in April 2022 to provide support to our overrun and overwhelmed border communities as the Biden Administration dumps thousands of migrants in their towns,” Andrew Mahaleris, press secretary for Governor Abbott said in response to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas. “Texas has since bused over 17,300 migrants to self-declared sanctuary cities Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia, providing much-needed relief.”

On Monday, the Office of the Texas Governor told Breitbart Texas that more then 220 buses have taking migrants from overrun border communities along the Rio Grande to Washington, D.C., since the program began just over a year ago. Each bus carries between 30 and 50 migrants who volunteer for the free trip to the eastern seaboard.
Last week, the governor’s office supplied the following data for the number of migrants delivered to Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. since the program began in April 2022:
- Washington, D.C.: more than 9,100 migrants on over 200 buses
- New York City: more than 5,700 migrants on over 115 buses
- Chicago: more than 1,600 migrants on over 30 buses
- Philadelphia: more than 920 migrants on over 15 buses
Prior to the Mother’s Day arrival, another busload of approximately 30 migrants from Texas arrived at the VP’s residence on May 12.

The Biden administration must be laughing all the way to victory for Abbott’s illogical logic of shipping illegals to K. Harris’ home or anywhere else in the US! He’s doing them a favor bringing them into our country. They won’t be at Harris’ home for long and bussed somewhere else in the nation. Instead of this delusional act, how about not letting them past our border and commanding them to return to the other side! An effective border initiative would be to have border patrol, chosen armed citizens, armed police command each illegal to turn back around and come into America LEGALLY! Biden and administration are all traitors who willfully ignore, disobey USA laws, Constitution and Bill of Rights, therefore, the Dems’ demands can and must be ignored. Why are Republican politicians obeying traitorous demands? This is exactly how communism has gained tremendous power in America. Why aren’t they taking control of this and every illegal, traitorous situation and demanding the obeyance of USA Constitution, Bill of Rights and immigration laws? The illegals already here have absolutely no rights, authority or say in anything that goes on here in America! The Republicans are acting like they have no power over this tyrannical treason when in fact they do. I’ll never vote for a Democrat, but the Republican Party must stop being fearful or complicit with Democrat representatives and senators, governors, et al, and start working for us We the People!!! Evilness only has the power that is given to them. There are more We the People than there are evil ones. We the People are the power always!!!
