Both Republicans and Democrats have been pressing Kamala Harris to do one small thing – and she’s having none of it.
Some Democrats have reportedly joined Republicans in urging Vice President Kamala Harris to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border to see the migrant surge fueling the crisis in the region firsthand.
However, the VP remains reluctant to visit the border, with a White House official telling the Los Angeles Times on condition of anonymity that going to the U.S.-Mexico line has nothing to do with addressing the “root causes” of migration, which Harris considers her mission.Breitbart News
It sounds more like she’s evading the problem rather than trying to deal with its root causes.
It’s been months and she still hasn’t gone to the border.
This is despite her having broader responsibilities for it.
Even Democrats are getting tired of her evasion.
Republicans have condemned Harris for not visiting the U.S. border with Mexico, particularly in her new role as the leader of the White House response to the border crisis.
However, the Los Angeles Times acknowledged Wednesday that in a rare show of bipartisanship, Democrats are also calling on Harris to travel to the southern border to see the problem firsthand and show that the Biden Administration is making an effort to address the issue.Breitbart News
Another response she gave insisted her responsibilities focus on Latin America, not the border.
But even this doesn’t add up.
“Harris, so far, has resisted making plans to visit, pointing out that her job description involves diplomacy in Latin America rather than policy at the border,” the Times noted about the VP’s refusal to visit the border.
While Harris claims that her job involves diplomacy with Mexico and Central American countries, including Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, she has only spoken with the Mexican and Guatemalan presidents about the crisis.Breitbart News
All this makes you wonder what her real priorities are, if not the borders of our own country…
