Cruz thinks Biden ‘really doesn’t like’ Harris after he tasked her with handling border crisis

President Joe Biden recently announced that he had tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with handling efforts to stem the growing crisis along the U.S.–Mexico border.

While Harris was seemingly pleased to accept the new role, at least one prominent Republican asserted that Biden had not done her any favors.

“You take it”

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) made his case during an appearance this week on Fox News Channel’s America’s News Room.

“My reaction to that appointment is, is, wow, Joe Biden really doesn’t like Kamala Harris,” he said, according to Fox.

Calling the immigration problem “the biggest political mess” of Biden’s first two months in office, Cruz said that it “threatens to derail the entire administration.”

Instead of tackling the problem himself, the Texas Republican said that Biden “looks to his vice president and says, you take it,” predicting that Harris “is not going to be able to solve this crisis.”

Cruz went on to reiterate the prevailing GOP position that the Biden administration “created this crisis because of their political partisan commitments that they can’t back away from,” as Fox reported.

“Dismantled all the elements”

Further expounding on the point, Cruz said that “the first thing” the president did upon entering office “was stop construction of the border wall” and reinstitute a “failed policy” requiring border agents to release undocumented migrants after they are detained.

The senator also took issue with Biden’s decision to end the so-called Remain in Mexico Policy, which former President Donald Trump instituted and required migrants to wait south of the border while their asylum cases were being adjudicated.

“But because the Democrats campaigned on saying [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is evil, securing the border is wrong because the Democrats support open borders,” Cruz claimed, according to Fox.

As for the vice president, Cruz said that she “doesn’t have anything to do other than go down there and let everybody go,” insisting that it is “the only option that is consisted with the political promises she’s made.”

Of course, Biden sought to shift the blame to his predecessor during his first solo press conference on Thursday, declaring that Trump “dismantled all the elements that exist to deal with what had been a problem and has been continuing to be a problem for a long time,” according to the Houston Chronicle.

  1. Well jee wiz, does anyone wonder just how heels up will approach this mess? Well throwing your money at it of course! The same way these fools always address a problem they create! Something approaching what Trump did with agreements with the central american heads of state except this time they will get boat loads of your tax dollars to do what they were doing and stopped because Biden had to undo what ever Trump did, cause he was a big bad meanie and Biden is nice old uncle Joe.

  2. Biden really not in control of their mental facility, Obama tells what do and Obama policy at the border was a complete mess, trump final get border under control fighting democrats every inch way, and Biden step in open borders and one open border there no closing them ever again Democrat just don’t have knowledge of what do and send in Fema and He fires everybody because he trying shift blame. which a stupid move.

  4. Can we recall, or vote all over again for a real President and Vice President. Instead of waiting 3 years? Otherwise we are in Deep Kimchi.

  5. President Trump did not make this crisis at the border. Biden did. President Trump had it under control. But when Biden took office he reverse everything at the border that President Trump had under control. Biden created this big problem for this country “NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP” The American people should really wake up and open their eyes and see that Biden is not the one who should be the president.

  6. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

    Stop complaining start calling and writing before its to late. I call and write everyday. 74million of us voted for Trump bombard these people with calls and letters.

  7. In addition to having been career military I am also a staunch conservative and, of course, an enthusiastic Trump supporter. Whereas I am gratified to see some conservative commentary on the web, it is incredibly annoying to see deceptive language and inferences on many such sites. The continuous use of the terms such as “bombshell”, “explosive”, “o wow” and such like are ridiculous. Phrases like “Biden is going down”, Harris is finished”, “Pelosi makes fatal error”, etc., etc. is nothing more than poorly conceived click bait for what amounts to mostly innocuous reporting, and almost every conservative site seems to engage in what amounts to the most juvenile sensationalism without significant content. Just report the facts. the rest is completely unnecessary, tiresome and just plain stupid.

  8. Biden,Harris,Schumer and Pelosi need to be removed from office before they completely destroy this country

  9. I agree, They are ruling this country of mine! I thought I got to vote on decisions ruling this country, NOT Biden, Harris, Schumer & Pelosi. They only get an elected right to vote, not to declare right or wrong! Instead every important decision or selection is decided by these 4, obviously for sale individuals!

  10. I am sick of all the “retoric” nonsense from the so called Conservative press. I just delete it, without reading. I watch OAN when I am bored to death.
