Greg Abbott Sends Two Migrant Buses to Kamala Harris' DC Residence

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Early Thursday morning, two buses carrying about 100 migrants arrived outside Vice President Kamala Harris' residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.

The buses were sent from Texas by Republican Governor Greg Abbott, and originated from Eagle Pass and the Del Rio station where the migrants - mostly from Venezuela - boarded the buses.

The two buses are the latest of dozens sent by Abbott to DC, Chicago and New York in an effort to highlight to politicans that Texas has been overwhelmed by unauthorized immigrants seeking entry at the U.S.-Mexico border. According to Abbott's office, Texas has sent about 9,500 migrants to Washington, D.C., starting with the first bus load on April 13th, and more than 2,100 migrants have been sent to New York.

The news of the buses was covered more by right and center-rated media, and less by left-rated sources. Coverage from right-rated sources tended to frame the Biden administration's immigration policies as a reason for the immigration crisis.
