Since Biden put Kamala Harris in charge of the crisis at the Southern border a week ago, we have heard absolutely nothing from the vice president on the pressing issue of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants swarming the border.
What we have heard from Left-leaning outlets like CNN is that Harris is busy “staring down” attempts from the GOP “to make her the face of the Biden administration’s response to the crisis at the border.” However, it was President Biden himself who made her the face of the response to the border crisis, not the GOP.
Flashback, Biden stated on March 24, “I’ve asked her, the VP, today…to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle and the countries that help – are going to need help in stemming the movement of so many folks, stemming the migration to our southern border.”
Biden clearly put Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis, whether CNN likes it or not.
The “fake news” media is simply protecting her from facing criticism over her lack of public response by blaming the Republicans, of course.
Harris should face tough questions from reporters as all people, Americans and illegal immigrants, are suffering from this unhindered crisis.
One of the most outrageous consequences of this crisis is that San Diego teachers are teaching migrant children in person as of this week, while American children sit at home and endure psychological distress from isolation and remote learning.
We should all be disgusted by the fact that, despite a surge in juvenile suicides over the past year and downgraded education, noncitizen migrant children are given priority under the Biden administration.
Not only is Biden’s border policy tragic for Americans, but it’s equally horrible for migrants making the dangerous trek for better opportunity in America—if they make it, that is.
The South Texas Special Operations Group of the Texas Rangers Division rescued a six-month-old baby girl who was thrown from a raft into the Rio Grande by human smugglers on March 16.
The smugglers assaulted the mother, resulting in a broken leg, before they threw her baby out, according to a statement by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
That’s just one horrific example of why the surge at the border must be stopped and why the media must continue to press Harris on her response.
Not to mention, human smugglers have placed wristbands on tens of thousands of migrants, who have hired them to get them across the border from Mexico into the United States, as an inventory system to keep track of how much money migrants owe them.
Once they reach America, migrants are indebted to the human traffickers and cartels and must find ways to pay them back – or else risk the lives of their families back at home in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and elsewhere.
Yet, still nothing from Vice President Kamala Harris.
Unfortunately for everyone, it’s not surprising that Harris has disappeared on this issue, as Democrats have campaigned against having strong border security, deeming it a “racist” Trump policy.
The last time she was asked if she would visit the border, she laughed it off and said she has “no immediate plans” to go. Just six days ago, White House chief spokesperson Symone Sanders told reporters, “I will just reiterate that the vice president is not doing the border.”
Not “doing the border”?
This unacceptable lack of leadership and direction from the White House on the border crisis is not only embarrassing but detrimental to American livelihoods. The Biden administration seems more interested in actively avoiding, allowing, and covering up the grave consequences of an illegal immigrant surge at the border rather than coming up with solutions to stunt it.
