Vice President Kamala Harris again ignored a question Friday about the arrival of migrants near her Washington, D.C., residence.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent two buses carrying 101 migrants that arrived Thursday morning outside the Naval Observatory. The group included migrants from Venezuela, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico. Multiple migrants, asked by Fox News Digital, said they think the border is open, contrary to what Harris said Sunday during an interview.

Harris, appearing with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa Friday, ignored a reporter’s shouted question on her reaction to the buses.

“What was your reaction to the buses arriving yesterday?” a pool reporter asked the vice president as she thanked the press with the South African president.
