As of Sunday, it has been 54 days since Vice President Kamala Harris was tasked by President Joe Biden to take charge of the border, and Republican senators continue to take her to task for her lackluster performance in the role.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said, “Enough is enough. Biden, Kamala, and Mayorkas need to stop pretending there is no crisis on our southern border. The safety and security of Texans and Americans across the country is at stake.”
He then continued, “It wasn’t suddenly these vicious murdering cartels rediscovered they were vicious murdering cartels. What happened is Joe Biden put his hand on the bible and put his right hand in the air, and repudiated policies that were working.”
Rick Scott got in on the criticism, saying, “”Kamala Harris could’ve walked to the Texas border in the time that she’s been given the responsibility to solve this problem, and [she has] not done anything.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was no help and only said, “We’re less worried about press conferences or political games that are being played by some.” If Harris is dragging her feet because she doesn’t want the political fallout from being linked to the crisis, then she’s the only one I see playing political games in this situation.
