Vice President Kamala Harris announced Wednesday that she will travel to Mexico and Guatemala soon, but many are still wondering just what she is doing to solve the immigration crisis unfolding at home.
Although said to be in charge, Harris has not visited the border and has not given a single press conference on the matter. Some are starting to see an authoritarian pattern fall into place. Media critic Joe Concha told Fox News that the Biden team’s efforts to cover up the crisis are like something out of North Korea.
Border “blackout” evokes North Korea
So far, Harris has spoken with Latin American leaders over the phone about deeply embedded “root causes” of migration, like poverty in Central America, but she has no plans of seeing the crisis up front — and, needless to say, changing course from open borders is not on the table.
The evasiveness displayed by Harris and Biden both has belied the so-called “transparency” touted by the White House non-stop, and has left some thinking Biden’s “solution” to the crisis he caused is to simply hide the mess.
Concha told Fox that the White House’s behavior is something one expects from “Pyongyang” and that Harris personally seems reluctant to take charge.
He called Harris a “chronic complainer” who has “no interest” in dealing with the problem.
“So here we have a chronic complainer, it appears, and not a doer based on her actions, because, again, if she had to answer questions around why are facilities filled at 17 times the amount at the border? Meanwhile, we’re hearing about reports of abuse, of sexual assault,” Concha said.
Concha noted that Harris may be especially fearful to face criticism, given her past comparisons between immigration officers and the KKK.
Critics say it is precisely that attitude that is driving the current crisis, as migrants rush to the border expecting to face little resistance from authorities.
“She would also have to explain why she thinks that illegal border crossings, which we’re seeing now by the hundreds and thousands, is considered legal in her mind. And that’s an argument that she made as a senator and a candidate,” Concha added.
As Harris and her boss continue to disown the problem, some speculate there is a method to their negligence — that letting migrants in is the entire point.
It’s certainly a compelling theory.
