Three migrant buses arrive at the Port Authority Terminal in New York City, Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022.

The two buses first arrived on Thursday at the Naval Observatory in Washington, where Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff live.

Harris accuses Republican governors of “negligence of duty” in a Vice news release Interview, And Emhof called the arrival a “shameful” and “political stunt”.

Asked by Vice what the “solution” to the migrant crisis is, Harris did not say anything about border security. Instead, she blamed former President Donald Trump, saying his administration “destroyed” the immigration system. “So we’ve been spending incredible time and work and resources rebuilding that system over the past 18 months,” she said.

Harris indicated that a bill providing a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally would also be part of the solution, as well as helping billions of migrants stay in their home countries.

Meanwhile, in Massachusetts, migrants sent by the Florida government to Martha’s Vineyard on Friday were taken to Joint Base Cape Cod where Governor Charlie Baker has set up a shelter.
