Breaking news for you. This has been a busy morning already. We are going live to pictures from Washington DC. And the latest report is that there have been immigrants by bus dropped off at Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence. This is just outside her home. You can see from these pictures, dozens, I would say more than 100. I don’t know if there are multiple hundreds of people outside on the lawn there, but not a small number of people outside, not the White House, but Vice President Harris’s home address.

You are looking live in Washington, DC. This is the latest breaking news, potentially another contention between governor Greg Abbott of Texas and the Northeastern cities that he has deemed home for those who have crossed illegally into the country, getting the attention of the federal government. That’s what he says his intentions are, to make sure that they know exactly what border towns along our border with Mexico are actually dealing with, the inundation of people, a lack of resources. Washington DC’s mayor Muriel Bowser has now asked for the federal government to step in. They have not taken any action yet, but Mitch, this is certainly the site to see all of these people just standing around on the front yard of the vice president of the United States.
Yes, this is the Naval observatory there in Washington.

Say that one more time.
This is the Naval observatory there, and that is the official residence of the vice president. So Kamala Harris is living and working there. And these immigrant buses have been dropped off right there. They’ve been put in her lap, essentially. It seems like this is an increasingly aggressive campaign, not only from governor Abbott, but you just heard Dre Clark’s report about migrants being sent to Martha’s Vineyard. Now that’s an island, so he’s flying them from Florida on a plane to Martha’s Vineyard. Now you have immigrants being dropped off in front of the vice president’s residents. The goal of these border governor’s is to bring this issue home to people that don’t usually have to deal with it. Governors Abbott in Texas, Ducey in Arizona, now DeSantis in Florida have been saying for months, this shouldn’t be just our problem. And in the last three, four months or so, they have decided it’s not just going to be our problem. And you are seeing evidence of that at the Naval Observatory, the residents of the Vice President Kamala Harris right now.
