The migrants, many of them Venezuelan nationals, were apprehended in Eagle Pass, Texas, and then shipped 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 slung over their shoulders to keep out the early morning chill, as they walked and chatted with one another outside the gated gates of Harris’s residence .

A representative from a charity called Sanctuary DMV later arrived and announced to the migrants that they would go to a local church where they would be offered help.

Abbott, a Republican, has been sending busloads of Texas migrants to Democrat-controlled cities like New York, Chicago and Washington DC all summer to teach them a lesson about the true implications of the border crisis sweeping the Lone Star state Has .

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, last week declared a public emergency over the influx of migrants from Texas and Arizona in need of shelter, medical care and other essential services.

Bowser’s repeated requests to deploy the National Guard to help with the migrant crisis have been denied by the Defense Department.

The migrants, many of them from Venezuela, were released in front of the Naval Observatory, located at the VP's formal residence.

The migrants’ arrival outside Harris’s residence comes just days after she said the southern border was “safe” in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

Moderator Chuck Todd challenged Harris’ testimony, noting that the number of border crossings was nearly 2 million for the first time ever, and asked her if she was “confident” the border was safe.

Harris, who was put in charge of the border crisis by President Joe Biden in March 2021, gave a confused response, saying, “We have a secure border that is a priority for every nation, including ours and our administration. But there are still many issues that we are trying to fix given the deterioration over the last four years.”

According to the latest data from Customs and Border Protection, the number of arrests of migrants under the Biden administration has nearly doubled, already beating last year’s record.
