Two buses carrying about 100 migrants from Texas arrived early Thursday outside Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, DC.

The migrants, many of them Venezuelan nationals, had been picked up in Eagle Pass, Texas, and were then shipped off to DC by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Fox News Digital reported.

Video from the scene showed a large group of men, women and children carrying small pillows and backpacks, some with blankets draped over their shoulders to keep off the morning chill as they milled about and chatted among themselves outside the guarded gates of Harris’ residence.

A representative from a charity called Sanctuary DMV later arrived and announced to the migrants they would be going to a local church, where they will be offered assistance.

Abbott, a Republican, has been sending busloads of migrants from Texas to Democrat-controlled cities like New York, Chicago and Washington, DC, throughout the summer to teach the cities a lesson about the real implications of the border crisis, which has overwhelmed the Lone Star State.

Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, declared a public emergency last week over the influx of migrants coming from Texas and Arizona — who require accommodations, medical care and other critical services.

Bowser’s repeated requests to have the National Guard deployed to help with the migrant crisis have been turned down by the Department of Defense.

The migrants, many of them from Venezuela, were let out outside the Naval Observatory, which in the VP's formal residence.

The migrants’ arrival outside Harris’ residence comes just days after she declared during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that the southern border is “secure.”

Host Chuck Todd challenged Harris’ statement, noting that the number of border crossings was nearing 2 million for the first time ever, and asked her if she was “confident” the border is secure.

Harris, who was put in charge of the border crisis by President Biden in March 2021, offered a muddled response, saying: “We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration. But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

According to the latest Customs and Border Protection data, migrant arrest numbers have almost doubled under the Biden administration and already exceed last year’s record.
