A bus carrying dozens of Nicaraguan migrants arrived at Vice President Kamala Harris' home Wednesday morning at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.
According to NBC News reporter Gary Grumbach, the bus came from Texas. Video footage showed men, women, and children carrying their belongings as they got off the coach, before getting into white vans.
The migrants were immediately picked up by volunteers from SAMU First Response, a humanitarian aid group, who assessed their needs, according to Grumbach.
The Wednesday arrival comes after the governors of southern border states, including Texas and Arizona, have bused thousands of migrants to Democrat-led cities in recent months.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has sent more than 8,400 migrants to Washington, D.C., since April and 5,000 to New York and Chicago, according to Abbott's office.
The latest arrival is not the first time a bus has dropped off migrants at Harris' residence at the Naval Observatory. Buses from Texas left migrants outside her home in September and October, with one bus carrying at least 50 people from Venezuela, according to the Daily Mail.
Migrant buses began to show up in Democrat-run cities without warning earlier this year, with Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey using the tactic to highlight what they say are the Biden administration's failed border policies.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew approximately 50 migrants from San Antonio to the affluent island community of Martha's Vineyard.
Authorities in the targeted sanctuary cities scrambled to provide housing and resources for the migrants, and Democrats denounced the Republican governors, claiming they were pulling political stunts and preying on vulnerable people.
Migrants who were flown to Martha's Vineyard have since filed a class-action lawsuit against DeSantis. California Gov. Gavin Newsom has called for the Department of Justice to investigate.
