Vice President Kamala Harris was recently slammed by conservative host Larry Elder over homicide data.
Although Harris is hoping to capitalize on the few minutes she spent at the border last weekend, Elder asked Harris a poignant question in his recent Fox News op-ed:
“The USA also faces a surge in crime, including homicide, in many American cities. Why aren’t we discussing this root cause?” asked Elder. “It cannot be because, as Harris says about migrants, people ‘don’t have opportunities there to fill their basic needs.’ After all, these migrants come precisely because they see opportunity here that they do not see in their home countries.”
“One hundred forty-one people have been murdered so far in 2021, a 22% increase over the same period in 2020,” noted Elder. “Six hundred people have been struck by gunfire in shootings in 2021, a 59% increase over this time last year.”
