A new busload of 50 migrants, including a 1-month-old child, were dropped in front of the Naval Observatory on Saturday, which is the Washington D.C. home of Vice President Kamala Harris, Fox News first reported.

The group mostly originated from Venezuela and add to the growing list of migrants who have been transported to the vice president’s home.

It marks the third bus of migrants sent from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott after others arrived earlier this week. Separately, six more buses from Texas carrying migrants reportedly arrived at New York’s Port Authority on Saturday, Fox News reported.

NBC shared video of the migrants arriving off the bus from Texas Saturday.

Aid workers quickly took the migrants away to a local shelter. Two buses first arrived at the Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. on Thursday, where Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff live.

“We’re sending migrants to her backyard to call on the Biden Administration to do its job & secure the border,” Abbott wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

However, U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called the shipments a form of “human trafficking.”

“Shipping vulnerable migrants across the country is not a campaign tactic. It is human trafficking,” she tweeted Thursday. “It is the abuse of dozens of human beings and a celebration of that abuse for political gain.”

Around 8,000 migrants have been sent from Texas to Washington since April, The Guardian reported, adding that Arizona has moved nearly 2,000 migrants to Washington since May. During that same time, according to the New York Post, over 11,000 migrants have been transported to New York City, with a majority coming from Texas.

Harris accused Republican governors of a “dereliction of duty” in a Vice News interview.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has also played a part in deporting refugees from his state.

Both conservative governors have cited border security as the reason behind their massive plan.

Social services immediately provided aid to the migrants who arrived in front of Harris’ home on Saturday, but organizations say the constant shipment of immigrants puts a strain on resources.

Abbott’s office did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast's request for comment Saturday.
