Harris slammed for attempting to blame migrant crisis on Trump

During her long overdue – but geographically misguided – trip to the border on Friday, Vice President Kamala Harris attempted to turn the tables in response to reporters’ questions and blame the ongoing crisis on former President Donald Trump in a move that drew swift condemnation from a range of observers, as Fox News reported.

Appearing in El Paso, Texas at a press conference following her visit to a migrant processing center there, Harris tried her best to convert the event into a platform from which to attack the prior administration’s hard-line stance on illegal immigration.

When the first journalist to pose a question to the vice president asked about her decision to travel to El Paso, nearly 1,000 miles away from the Rio Grande Valley where the bulk of the illegal crossings have been occurring, Harris pivoted to criticism of Trump instead of answering directly, according to the Washington Examiner.

“So first of all, what is happening here in El Paso really is, in many ways, highlights many facets on the issue of immigration,” Harris said, adding, “It is here in El Paso that the previous administration’s child separation policy as unveiled, and so we’ve seen the disastrous effects of that right here in this region. It is here, El Paso, that the ‘Return to Mexico’ policy from the previous administration was implemented.”

Earlier on Friday, Harris heaped additional blame on the Trump administration by suggesting that the Biden team had “inherited a tough situation,” and claiming that “in five months, we’ve made progress.”

It did not take long for commentators to start pointing out the absurdity of Harris’ deflections, with journalist Julio Rosas explaining on Twitter that ever since the Biden administration began taking active steps to reverse key Trump-era immigration policies, border encounters have skyrocketed.

Conservative commentator Katie Pavlich pointed to White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s own statement that Harris went to El Paso precisely because that is where several Trump policies were first implemented as evidence that the administration has “zero interest in solving the problem, just reversing Trump.”

Lending further credence to the notion that Harris did not travel south for the purpose of gaining practical insight on the devastating effects of the migrant influx on local communities were remarks from Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), who said that a trip to El Paso was politically “safer” for Harris and that his constituents want to know why she continues to avoid the epicenter of the problem.

“If you want to get a real idea of what’s happening at the border, you’ve got to go where the hot spot is, and that is the lower Rio Grande, said Cuellar, adding, “I hope that she’ll go down 800-900 miles down the border sometime in the future.” Considering the cynical political calculus clearly informing Harris’ decisions these days, the chances of such a trip seem slim, indeed.

This is the dumb Dems. moto, don’t understand what I am doing or we are committing a crime & do not want America to know what sneaky thing we are doing so lets just blame Trump!!??? How crazy are they, most people do not believe a thing CNN or other main news station say, also don’t believe a word out of most Dems. mouths cause all they do is lie & spew hate!! Just look at our country riots, killings, beatings not by the police but by Antifa & BLM without so much as one Dem. say they are out of control & destroying our country. Instead you have Dems. like Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Waters, Lightfoot, Whitmore, Cuomo, Newsom, the squad etc. etc. committing crime after crime & getting away with it. Do me a favor Dems. stop thinking WE THE PEOPLE are stupid, you will see how smart we are next election!!!

What is it going to take to prove, more than already, that this is a shame administration that doesn’t know or care about running a country – MUCH LESS THE USofA !!! It’s time that real Americans stood up to these stupid actions and get this country back on its correct pathway !!! This is a shame that this administration doesn’t care about the lives lost in defense of this country or what this country stands for !!! The time is near to the breaking point – how much longer will it take ???

Nick the morons has been in Washington for 47 years, he finally brought his ho to be with him. These 2 idiots aren’t smart enough to do this much damage on their own. This is Obama, Hillary the killer and George Soros doing the puppets and making them dance.. The Cabinet gives them what to say and what to sign. This is treason beyond reason and Piglosi and Schumer are more pawns in the game.

Kamala is by far the worse vp america has ever seen. heels up harris is so stupid that she can not even lie well enough to get out of the press room before people have written long proofs of her lying. she is so inelegant that she laughs like a 13 year old when caught in a hard question. kamala is proof that affirmative action has allowed too many stupid people to go through college.

Kamala is a prefect example of why affirmative action needs to be eliminated and everyone needs to vote for 100% school vouchers.

We would have to kill off all the Dems to get things in order again. I really don’t think that will happen. WE need to find a way to stop the madness before we no longer have a country we recognize.
