On Monday (October 10), Vice President Kamala Harris repeated an accusation she’s made of Republican governors, claiming sending migrants to northern liberal cities is a “dereliction of duty.”

The Vice President made her comments during an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” while she renewed calls for solutions to the migrant crisis, suggesting part of the solution should include amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.

Meyers asked Harris about her views on Republican governors transporting migrants to Democrat-led cities; she replied, “We’re talking about people who are fleeing great harm, they’ve fled great harm and they are seeking refuge. And talk about political theater, playing games with people’s lives. There are mothers with sleeping babies getting off those buses.”

So far, Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) has transported roughly 12,000 migrants to liberal states. His office revealed, of these figures, more than 8,000 migrants have been sent to Washington, D.C., 3,000 migrants have been transported to New York City, and a further 1,000 to Chicago.

Arizona has also transported migrants to Washington, D.C., with the border states being recently joined by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who flew 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

Republican Governors have explained their decision to transport migrants comes from federal inaction that has caused the border crisis to balloon under President Joe Biden, with border crossings reaching 200,000 a month.

Commenting on the matter, Harris said: “I just think it’s an absolute dereliction of duty,” adding, “If you see a problem, and we agree we need to address it, then if you’re a leader, participate in a solution, right?”

Lasted month Harris floated the solution, stating, “We also have to put into place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship.”
