‘Border czar’ Kamala Harris says Republicans are ‘playing games’ by dropping migrants at her house

‘Border czar’ Kamala Harris calls migrant flights ‘inhumane’, says Republicans are ‘playing games’ by dropping groups at her house and blames TRUMP for American’s frustration with the border

  • Vice President Kamala Harris slammed Republicans for ‘playing games’ with human lives for busing and flying migrants across the country
  • Said in a Vice interview Republicans governors are making migrants part of a political stunt for the ‘sake of a headline’ 
  • Follows Texas Governor Greg Abbott sending two buses of migrants to the vice president’s residence in D.C. earlier this month 
  • Also comes amid a lawsuit against Gov. Ron DeSantis for sending a plane of 50 migrants to the wealthy island of Martha’s Vineyard off of Massachusetts

Kamala Harris slammed Republicans for dragging migrants to locations across the country for the ‘sake of a headline’ after Governor Greg Abbott dropped two buses off in front of the vice president’s residence.

Harris was put in charge of the migration crisis by President Joe Biden, but her office quickly branded the role as addressing the root causes why people flee to the U.S. from Northern Triangle countries.

A class action lawsuit was opened into Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after he flew a plane of 50 migrants to the wealthy island of Martha’s Vineyard off the coast of Massachusetts.

‘They’re playing games,’ Harris told Vice in an interview released Thursday. ‘These are political stunts with real human beings who are fleeing harm.’

‘I mean, doing it for the sake of a headline, what we’re seeing with these governors is irresponsible and it’s inhumane,’ she added.

She also blamed former President Donald Trump and his administration’s policies for ‘dismantling’ the process designed to help people come to the country and claim asylum when fleeing their homes.

Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey have sent thousands of migrants by bus to Washington, D.C., New York City and now Chicago, Illinois – all three sanctuary cities that have pledged not to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement.

Part of Abbott’s efforts included sending two buses to the vice president’s residence in D.C. rather than to Union Station near the Capitol.

The stunt was to bring the migrants to the literal doorsteps of the so-called ‘border czar’.

Migrants on those two buses said they didn’t know they were being dropped off near Harris’ home – but expressed that they thought the border was open despite the vice president insisting it’s closed. 

August figures were released this week that brought the total number of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) migrant encounters to more than 2 million in Fiscal Year 2022

After DeSantis’ flight of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, reports emerged that he was using the same private plane to send more migrants to the Delaware Coastal Airport, just 20 miles from President Biden’s vacation home in Rehoboth Beach.

The plane never arrived on Tuesday, despite attracting a myriad of reporters, volunteers, bystanders, Delaware government officials and even priests.
