Kamala Harris can’t grasp the severity of the situation of the illegal immigration crisis.
Even Democrats are warning of the critical danger.
Kamala Harris made an unbelievable claim in the middle of the border crisis.
While American cities are declaring states of emergency due to the surge in illegal immigration Vice President Kamala Harris claimed that the situation was still manageable.
NPR White House Correspondent Asma Khalid asked Harris, “I’m curious if there’s anything you feel that you all can do unilaterally, and I guess I say this in part because the governor of your home state of California, he told ABC News that ‘what we’ve got right now [is not] working.’ … He said that ‘it’s about to break in a post-42 world unless we take [some] responsibility and ownership.’ And it sounds like the situation in certain states — I guess in California in particular — is incredibly dire with a fear that things will become unsustainable in the weeks ahead.”
Harris responded, “Well, listen, I think that it is right to say that we need leadership on this issue, in particular from Congress. Now, the president and I and our administration, we are going to do everything that’s within our ability as the executive branch, and that means, again, putting more agents on the border as appropriate so that we can manage what might be an influx.”
There is no doubt that there will be an influx of illegal immigration when Title 42, a Trump-era immigration policy that allowed America to expel asylum seekers, ends.
“It is about increasing the work that we have been increasing around arresting human smugglers,” Harris added. “And it is the work that we have been doing that has been about bringing the partners and the allies together on an international level, understanding that we are seeing these migration trends around the globe. And in particular, the work that we have done that has been about addressing the root causes of migration from, for example, the northern part of Central America, actually is having an impact.”
Harris was supposed to be the White House’s ‘border czar’ but she abandoned the role, after a few Central American photo-ops, claiming to deal with “root causes.”
Instead Harris lied to the American public and tried to convince them that there wasn’t a crisis by claiming that the border was secure.
She told “Meet the Press” that the border is “secure” earlier in the year. Asked what that means, she answered, “We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration.”
Since Biden and Harris took office there have been a record-breaking at least 5.5 million southern border encounters.
