Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent dozens more asylum seekers to the home of Vice President Kamala Harris this week in another effort to show his distaste for White House immigration policies this week.

The Republican Governor, who referred to Harris as a “border czar” in a tweet on Saturdayreportedly brought about 50 migrants — including a one-month-old baby — to Harris’ residence at the US Naval Observatory, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“Texas is bringing the border into their backyard to relieve our overwhelmed communities,” Abbott wrote in a tweet on Saturday. “It’s past time to solve this crisis they created.”

The migrants, who were allegedly tricked before their trip, flew to a military base in Cape Cod that was reportedly better equipped to house them on Friday.

Democrats in Massachusetts criticized the move as a “political stuntwhile California Governor Gavin Newsom challenged DeSantis to a debate, saying he “playing politics with people’s lives.”

Abbott’s press secretary, Renae Eze, told TBEN News that the migrants arrived at the house after a drive from El Paso.

The Bharat Express News has contacted Abbott’s office for additional comment.

Harris told Vice News on Friday that the moves were “political stunts involving real people on the run from evil”.

“I think it’s the height of irresponsibility, much less — just, frankly, dereliction of duty, when you’re an elected leader, to play those kinds of games with people’s lives and people,” Harris said. “If you think there is a problem, be part of the solution.”
