The officers also found $95,000 in cash. And some cocaine in the homes during the raid.

Southern border crisis in DC
Migrants arriving from Texas and Arizona on buses in the district are involved in some of the crimes. The bus trips were organized by the governors of southern border states. They claim that the Biden administration’s border policies have created the crisis.
Migration across the US-Mexico border has surged to record levels.
Officials in border states have grown wary of the federal government’s hands-off attitude about the crisis.
Conservative Mercedes Schlapp who was the White House strategic communication director under Trump said, “Over one million illegal immigrants have been dumped on Texas and Arizona border towns since Joe Biden took office and it took an influx of less than 4,000 into Washington DC for @MayorBowser to call in the National Guard.”
Jean-Pierre: "Republicans are using migrants as a political tool."
Doocy: "So the White House's preference would be for small towns in Texas and Arizona to take care of these migrants and not DC."
