Harris finally visits border, but stays far away from crisis zone

After months of stubborn delay, Vice President Kamala Harris finally agreed this week to visit the nation’s border with Mexico, but Republican lawmakers and others have pointed out that the location of her actual destination means that she is still effectively running away from where the true problem lies, as the Washington Examiner reports.

On Friday morning, Harris – the Biden administration’s point person for the ongoing migrant crisis – traveled to El Paso, Texas to personally visit a Customs and Border Protection processing center, but as critics were quick to highlight, the location is actually hundreds of miles away from the true center of the record-breaking influx that continues to overwhelm local communities as well as state and federal law enforcement agencies.

As former acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf explained during a radio interview on Wednesday, “She’s going to the wrong part of the border,” alluding to the fact that El Paso is roughly 1,000 miles from the Rio Grande Valley sector, an area where the bulk of illegal border crossings have been occurring.

Speaking to the vice president’s arguably misguided travel plans from the floor of the Senate that same day, Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn displayed a geographical representation of his home state and sarcastically declared, “Someone needs a map.”

Since her appointment to the border role by President Joe Biden back in March, Harris has persisted in an unusual degree of reluctance to get a first-hand look at the crisis conditions that have been decried by legislators on both sides of the aisle, but some observers believe that it was not a sense of duty, but rather a challenge posed by a political foe that finally forced the vice president to get on a plane.

As Politico reported, former President Donald Trump, joined by a group of congressional Republicans, announced plans of his own to visit the southern border on June 30 to survey the disastrous conditions that stemming from Biden’s reversal of many of his predecessor’s immigration policies.

The seemingly curious timing of Harris’ sudden about-face on travel to the border was quickly seized upon by lawmakers including Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX), who said, “It took months of pressure from those of us in Congress, Texans along the border, and a visit from President Trump himself to finally convince ‘Border Czar’ Vice President Harris to visit the border first-hand.”

Republican Rep. Pete Sessions, also of Texas, put things even more plainly, telling Fox News, “Let’s just say, there are no coincidences in Washington.”

Asked on Friday to comment on Harris’ decision to travel to El Paso, Trump himself pointedly opined, according to the New York Post, “I think she should go to the border. I think she should go to the real part of the border, not a part of the border that is seldom violated.”

Worst excuse for a person ever. That kackle is to hate for. Only way these win next election is if all republicans are dead. This has to be the last time we see her. If that was able to be.

Well that is her nature to run away from problems rather than confront them like a normal person would.

With Democrats, it is all smoke and mirrors. She just wants to say she has been there. Everything a Democrats does is for show. She should have been asking for tours of all the facilities to evaluate how they are doing? Hopefully the border state governors stick together and enforce our immigration laws, whether Biden likes it or not.

I am still amazed tha the stupid liberals / democrats committed voter fraud to put these complete morons in office.

harris only has one semi talent and that is why her nick name is heels up harris. suck it long harris.

Biden is such a racist he has offended every dingle race there is and pissed off half the world while being called a laughing stock by the entire world.

biden and his administration are so weak and so ridiculous in their ideology I will be shocked if the USA is not invaded by China and Russia before the 2022 elections. they will probably let north Korean and Iran lead the charge.

you know there is a reason half of america thinks there was voter fraud.

That was not a visit to the border. She just didn’t want Trump to get any credit, but he will because he is not afraid to see what is really happening at the border. She is just as deceitful as the rest of the Dem Admin.

Well did you expect anything else from Kamala? i surely didn’t. We are stuck with two of the most unqualified people in our White House ever! Kamala is a pig and Biden is in another world because of dementia. How could anything good come from this? It can’t.

Every morning when I wake up I look at the calendar to see if it is 2024 yet. These are the longest 4 years in history.

Kamala goes to boarder but not where the problem is so how is that helping anything. She is so afraid and she should be with what she and Biden have done to the once secure boarder.
