Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday again ignored a question about the arrival of migrants near her Washington, DC, residence.
Then later on Friday, her husband, second gentleman Doug Emhoff, called it “shameful” and a “political stunt”.
“These are humans,” Emhoff told reporters after receiving a COVID-19 booster shot. “These are the people. They needed to be treated with respect, with kindness and respect, and they weren’t. And we have so-called leaders in this country who focus on what’s good for the public within their states.” Instead of being focused, they are ‘using people as pawns for political stunts.’
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent two buses carrying 101 migrants that arrived outside the Naval Observatory on Thursday morning. This group included migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico. Several migrants asked by Fox News Digital said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview.

Harris, who appeared with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Friday, ignored a journalist’s shout-out question over his reaction to the buses.
“How was your reaction to the buses that arrived yesterday?” A pool reporter asked the Vice President while thanking the press with the President of South Africa.
Harris and Ramaphosa turned around and walked in without question.
Migrants were taken by non-government groups to a local church on Thursday.

This latest convoy of buses arrived just hours after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday following his similar promise to drop illegal immigrants in progressive states.
Those migrants who were taken on a bus to Joint Base Cape Cod in Massachusetts on Friday arrived at the base with two police motorcycles and a police SUV.
Harris similarly declined to comment on the two migrant buses after delivering remarks at the White House on Thursday.

Harris spoke at the United We Stand Summit held at the White House on Thursday morning. As the vice president left the East Room after his remarks, a White House pool reporter asked him for comment on the recent arrival of migrants near his DC residence.
Harris looked at the reporter and continued walking without answering.
