The White House slammed Republican governors’ efforts to bus migrants to Washington, D.C. and other Democratic enclaves without any advance notice, calling their actions “cruel” and “shameful” political stunts.

On Thursday, two buses sent by Texas Governor Greg Abbott arrived near Vice President Kamala Harris’s home. The arrival followed a similar dispatch Wednesday when two planes, sent by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, arrived in Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the Massachusetts coast best known as a tony haven for presidents and wealthy vacationers.
