Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent two buses of illegal immigrants to the Washington, D.C. residence of Vice President Kamala Harris.
The buses originated in Eagle Pass, Texas, one of the busiest crossings at the southern border and site of a recent video showing Border Patrol agents opening a gate and allowing dozens of illegal immigrants into the country after Texas National Guard officers had locked it.
The trip brought roughly 75 to 100 illegals within yards of Harris’ home.
Fox News national correspondent Griff Jenkins posted a video purportedly of the illegal immigrants arriving on the scene, with one even telling him he believes the border is “open.”

Greg Abbott sending buses of illegal immigrants to the home of Vice President Kamala Harris marks an escalation in his tactics in trying to bring the border crisis to the doorstep of blue sanctuary cities.
“This morning, two Texas buses of migrants arrived at the Naval Observatory in DC,” he announced on Twitter.
Abbott explained, “We’re sending migrants to her backyard to call on the Biden Administration to do its job [and] secure the border.”
That’s really all he has been asking for with this political ploy. Do your job, Mr. President. Either you or your feckless border czar should find a solution.
Abbott has previously been busing illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities such as New York City, Chicago, and of course, Washington, D.C.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser was so distraught by the number of illegal immigrants showing up in her city that she requested National Guard help – twice.
Bowser last week declared a public emergency over the influx.

Abbott’s move is a strong message to Harris and contradicts claims she made recently about security at the southern border.
She recently told NBC’s Chuck Todd that “the border is secure” and blamed the previous administration for the current crisis that was under control when Trump was in the White House.
“The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed,” said Harris.
It was a claim so ridiculous that Democrat Senator Joe Manchin had to call her out as “dead wrong.”
Now, as buses of illegal immigrants are dropped off outside her residence, Kamala Harris is learning first-hand that the border is not secure. She’ll never admit to it, but the optics are something to behold.
Here’s one of the migrants telling Jenkins the border is wide open because “we enter, we come in, free — no problem.”
No problem for him, but a busload of problems for Americans who believe they live in a sovereign nation.
Townhall Media was kind enough to put together video that should be used in political advertisements for Republicans across the nation as the midterms approach.
Abbott’s ploy to send buses to the home of the Vice President comes as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just hours ago sent two planes full of illegal immigrants to deep blue Martha’s Vineyard.
Democrats have argued that sending illegal immigrants to their cities is “inhumane” and “racist.”
