‘It’s a complex issue’: Harris continues to avoid border-related press conference

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with taking a leading role in addressing the ongoing migrant surge along the U.S.-Mexico border.

After 40 days in her new role, however, Harris has yet to hold a briefing or press conference to address the issue, let alone make a personal visit to the border.

“It’s not going to be solved overnight”

In a recent interview, she was asked about her perceived inaction and basically stated that the problem would not be resolved any time soon.

“The kind of work that has to happen is the diplomatic work that we have been engaged in, including my calls to the president of Mexico, the president of Guatemala,” Harris said.

The vice president touted her work behind the scenes but prepared Americans for a lengthy process toward resolving the border problem, stating: “It’s not going to be solved overnight. It’s a complex issue. Listen, if this were easy, it would have been handled years ago.”

She went on to blame much of the crisis on climate change, suggesting that recent extreme weather events have driven individuals from their home countries and toward the U.S.

Of course, critics of the Biden administration have placed the onus on a decision to reverse or repeal many of the immigration and border policies implemented under the previous administration, which they say has served to encourage migrants to make the journey to America’s southern border.

“I understand the president’s busy”

As one example, Biden has canceled agreements put in place under former President Donald Trump to keep most migrants in Mexico until their immigration hearings could be completed.

The current administration has also paused many deportations pending a review of existing policies, effectively hamstringing the federal agents working to address the issue.

As a result, roughly 172,000 migrants attempted to cross the border in March, and nearly as many made the journey in April, representing near-record numbers of individuals who are now mostly waiting inside the U.S. to have their day in court.

In a recent Fox News interview, former acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf weighed in on the lack of action he has identified by Harris and the Biden administration.

“It’s really unbelievable, again, that either the president or the vice president has not gone down to the border,” he said. “Now, I understand the president’s busy. The vice president should be down at that border, understanding what is going on, talking to the law enforcement, talking to the men and women, talking to the sheriffs, talking to the ranchers, and understanding the impact that that much illegal immigration per moth is having on those communities down there.”

  1. Like everything weak minded people do, make excuses and take no action. Simple, enforce the laws first and talk later.

    1. Hey Gary, most of this can be solved overnight. Reinstate Trumps agenda. If you want to find Kamala look for Willy Browns address. He promoted her and will protect her.

  2. I don’t think Trump tasked Harris to do anything. Does anyone review what is written before publishing?

    1. Susan Stark you took the words right out of my mouth! Obviously this Jan Krausz is an idiot n shouldn’t be writing articles while drunk or stoned.

      1. They are so used to blaming President Trump for everything they forget Biden is the one giving orders !!
        Biden gave these illegal immigrants an open invitation to come to America and he we will give them everything free! Who’s not going to come??? He is the worst President ever! All they want to do is bankrupt and ruin our great country!! I just don’t know why ! Do they hate America that much !
        They who have gotten everything from this country!
        They make me sick!!

    2. Well said. It’s hard to believe that this story was even published with that ridiculous gaff in the first sentence. Several people must have been asleep at the wheel. And Donald Trump would never entrust Harris with anything past sleeping with Willie Brown. She’s proven she can be successful at least at that.

    3. That was a stunning error, wasn’t it, Susan? Print media USE to have editors who reviewed things for accuracy. Seems today, those jobs have been eliminated!

  4. Kamala Harris is a complete looser. She is not doing the job she is being paid to do. When you have a job and you do not do your job you get fired. Fire impeach this no good Harris person.

  5. Notice no leaks in this administration?! And in the beginning Trump had leaks every day?! Proves Hussein Obama had his henchmen entrenched in every department. God help us.🇺🇸✝️

  6. You miswrote the name of the President. It was NOT PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP who named Kamala Harris to the border. It was President BIDEN

  7. At the beginning of this email it indicates President Donald J Trump tasked VP Kamala Harris with the border issue. That should have been Joe Biden.
    I believe if President Donald J Trump had tasked her with the problem and she didn’t go to the border, she would have been fired the first day.

  8. I guess this illegitimate VP forgets that the illegal immigration fiasco was solved by the legal POTUS Donald Trump.

  9. In this issue:
    “‘It’s a complex issue’: Harris continues to avoid border-related press conference
    May 4, 2021”

    I don’t believe that Pre. Donald Trump made the follow quote, I think that you intended to say, Pre. Biden.

    And I quote
    “Earlier this year, President Donald Trump tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with taking a leading role in addressing the ongoing migrant surge along the U.S.-Mexico border.”

  10. The Democrats are a total disgrace, they are so pathetic, and they actually try to blame the border crisis, and it is a crisis, on Trump?! Pathetic!

  11. Wise decision making is the attribute of The President and VP. Regardless if semantic errs at the article it is true that Predident Donald Trump were doing fine, also on immigration. And he get approval of the Mexico President, and over all his all decisions were suiting our desired, including our securities and protecting our freedoms.
    VP Kamala Harris is not acting on her own, trying avoid controversy. However at her position we are expecting problems resolving decisions.
    I like her calm character, presenting immigration as not to be solved over night. It is our Capitol Hill Representatives, that shall come with solutions at every major issues, and voice if the VP shall refer to decision of majority, let say 75% or decree of Donald Trump shall be respected.. I think the major problem lays in our failing Government, that is not doing their job!

  12. Harris’ campaign slogan should been, I know nothing I do nothing I do not care about the USA, but I’ll laugh at all your stupid troubles & blame some stupid thing for causing them!!! I’ve seen rocks that were smarter than her!

  13. President Trump did not appoint Kamala Harris to any position. Get your act together. — Earlier this year, President Donald Trump tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with taking a leading role in addressing the ongoing migrant surge along the U.S.-Mexico border. —
