Three busloads of undocumented immigrants were shipped to Vice President Kamala Harris‘ home in D.C. — on Christmas Eve, no less … courtesy, it seems, of Gov. Greg Abbott.
The startling scene unfolded late Saturday night, when a bus pulled up near the Veep’s Naval Observatory residence in the dead of night … and scores of people poured out in the freezing cold temperatures, which are said to have been in the teens.

A lot of them didn’t have the proper attire for the weather, and they were quickly provided blankets and jackets by folks on the ground who scrambled to find them housing.
Before long, two more buses showed up … and even more migrants were dropped off and left to fend for themselves. Good Samaritans are reported to have worked together to get as many as they could to local shelters and churches, at least for one evening anyway.
Another bus just arrived outside @VP residence. One man tells me that traveled 2 days from Texas and he came from Ecuador. He said he was happy to be here.

Many of the migrants are said to be asylum seekers from Ecuador, Nicaragua and other Central/South American countries, and they’re all believed to have come from the TX border.
This marks the second time this year that Texas officials have transported folks like this across the country — earlier this year, in a tag-team effort from Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis, even more migrants were bused to both the Veep’s residence and Martha’s Vineyard.
The move, which many view as a cruel political stunt from the GOP, is supposedly meant to be a message about the state of things at the border … but to do something like this on Christmas Eve is another level of messed up.
It doesn’t appear VP Harris was home during the ordeal. She hasn’t commented on it either.
