At least one of the migrants, Wazir Khan, agreed with the move, saying he was told his final destination will be New York.

Several of the migrants who arrived on Thursday came from Venezuela, Columbia, and other South American countries on a 38-hour bus ride that left Texas on Tuesday around 4 p.m., officials stated.

As they were transferred on the bus, they were given appointments for immigration court hearings over the coming months. It’s not clear where the migrants will be staying in the interim.

Volunteers with independent humanitarian groups arrived at the Naval Observatory shortly after the buses arrived on Thursday, telling the Washington Examiner they were unaware migrants would be dropped off at that location. Groups had been waiting since 6 a.m. at Union Station, where buses have been dropping off migrants since April.

Groups are planning to take the migrants to a local church to feed them breakfast and offer them resources that will help them travel to their final locations.

Mayor Muriel Bowser was unaware the buses would be dropping migrants off at the vice president’s residence. The city is working to mobilize its newly created Office of Migrant Services to respond to the migrant arrivals, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office told DC News Now.

According to data from the Texas Division of Emergency Management, Texas has spent over $12 million chartering buses to transport migrants to more liberal states. CNN, which obtained a state government spreadsheet through a Freedom of Information Act request, found that the state has paid $12,707,720.92 to Wynne Transportation, the charter service that is taking migrants to Washington, D.C. and New York.

Arizona and Florida have joined Texas in this controversial tactic, sending busloads or planeloads of migrants to Washington and Martha’s Vineyard.

Since May, Arizona has sent 43 buses to Washington, D.C., transporting migrants who are mainly from Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. Doug Ducey, the state’s Republican governor, is estimated to have sent at least 1,500 people to the capital so far.

Texas, Arizona and Florida are crucial battlegrounds in the mid-term elections in November, with the governor’s office in all three states up for grabs.

On Wednesday, the small Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard, known as a wealthy vacationing spot, unexpectedly received some 50 migrants who traveled through Texas under Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ program to relocate illegal migrants.
