Vice President Kamala Harris has not given a press conference or visited the border since being put in charge of the migrant crisis.
But although she and her team are full of excuses as to why that is, her secret is that when she thought it was politically expedient for her to visit the border, she did visit the border back in 2018.
I guess the needs of the country in general don’t rise to a sufficient level of urgency for Harris.
“Vice President Kamala Harris has come under criticism from Republicans and former Trump officials for not having visited the border in her leading role in dealing with the migrant crisis — although she visited in 2018 to protest Trump-era policies,” according to Fox News. “Harris was appointed in March by President Biden to lead diplomatic talks with Mexican and Northern Triangles leaders in order to solve the surge in migration that has led to an overwhelming crisis at the southern border.”
Harris has claimed that she’s making phone calls but experts are saying she needs to visit the border as well.
“I’d say the vice president, if she’s actually addressing this issue, needs to do both, needs to go to the border, needs to understand the conditions that are being experienced, needs to understand and talk to the men and women of the Border Patrol, she needs to hear firsthand what they’re experiencing, because it’s all interrelated,” says former acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
