Vice President Kamala Harris has been ordered by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) to visit the southern border so progress can be made in solving the ongoing immigrant crisis. This comes after Republicans have demanded certain border facilities be shut down.
Abbott sent a letter to Vice President Harris on Friday in which he said, “In your role as Border Czar, you have a duty to these children and the American people to act immediately. I implore you to act immediately to protect these children, secure the border, and end this crisis. Our repeated warnings and questions have gone ignored by President Biden, yourself, and Department of Homeland Security Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas.”
President Biden punted the border crisis to Vice President Harris after it became clear that Biden didn’t have the answers to solve the crisis.
So far, Vice President Harris has failed to visit the border, nor has she held a press conference to discuss the measures that the government will be taking. Furthermore, the Biden administration’s border facilities are grossly inadequate to deal with this surge.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) visited the border and had this to say about the facilities saying, “If you had any facility that takes care of kids that was even a fraction of what the Biden administration has set up, you’d be shut down.”
This crisis is not going away, and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris cannot continue ignoring it. There must be swift and significant action taken to solve the issue and put an end to this crisis that has stretched on for far too long.
