For the second time this week, a bus pulled up outside of Vice President Kamala Harris’ home in Washington, D.C., and dropped off migrants Thursday.
According to NBC Washington, approximately 50 men, women and children had arrived in Texas from South America before being transported to the district.
SAMU First Response volunteers were on site to assist the migrants and some in the crowd could be seen carrying plastic bags, according to the news outlet.
