MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle had harsh words for Vice President Kamala Harris over the crisis at the southern border of the United States.
Ruhle lit into Harris saying that the vice president was not doing her duty as “border czar” as was evidenced by the escalating problems plaguing Customs and Border Patrol.
“How about the message from our vice president, where is she? Ruhle said. She was supposed to be in charge of all of these migration issues, going to those Northern Triangle countries that’s obviously not Haiti, that was one of her first international trips with the message do not come here illegally.”
“People aren’t listening. What is she saying now?” she added

According to a report in The Daily Caller, Harris has still not made any indication that she will make a visit to the southern border since over 10,000 Haitians have presented themselves at the Del Rio International Bridge.
The vice president visited South and Central America in her first attempt to speak with other countries about the southern border telling them the United States would send more money in aid if they would just stay home.
Harris was put in charge of the southern border shortly after the Biden administration was installed in office early in 2021 with President Joe Biden forcefully stating that Harris speaks for the entire administration.
The vice president has made such appearances as speaking on Friday’s edition of ABC’s “The View,” but has yet to again visit the southern border since her trip in June where she visited El Paso, Texas and a detention center there.
Republicans have been clear that they are unhappy with Harris’ treatment of the southern border, noting not only the national security risks, but possible economical and health risks to the nation if illegal immigration continues unchecked.
