Americans have been waiting almost a month for Vice President Kamala Harris to do something — anything — about the migrant crisis on the border since President Joe Biden put her in charge of the growing problem.
Finally, Harris held a roundtable meeting on Thursday to discuss immigration from the Northern Triangle countries in Central America, only to blame the whole crisis on, of all things, climate change.
According to Harris, extreme weather from climate change has caused a struggling agriculture industry, food scarcity, food insecurity and extreme poverty, which has caused people to flee Central America in record numbers.
“Climate resiliency” is the problem
“Again, we’re looking at the issue of climate resiliency, and then the concern about the lack of economic opportunity,” she said during the meeting.
In February, Biden signed an executive order for a report on the impact of climate change on mass migration to be created, but that report is still underway.
Apparently Harris thinks she knows the results of that investigation and report before it could even be completed and reported.
The vice president said she wanted to offer migrants “hope” that “things will get better,” but she has not specifically offered any solutions to the problems being caused by adverse conditions in Northern Triangle countries.
Instead, she said, solutions to the problem were “not going to be accomplished overnight. If it was easy, it would have been solved a long time ago.”
Not the one for the job
The bottom line is Harris is an incompetent politician who doesn’t know what she’s doing and doesn’t have any real answers to the very real problems America is facing right now.
She isn’t going to take action to fix the huge and growing problem on the border, because she actually wants mass illegal immigration so that those same migrants can be amnestied and become Democratic voters.
As former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News earlier this month, “They want the border to be open. Go back and look at the presidential primary debates. They are all in favor of open borders. They are all in favor of eliminating ICE. They are all in favor of eliminating any threat to sanctuary cities.”
It’s frightening that this is the person Biden picked to back him up if he is unable to do his job. It’s very likely that he will at some point not be able to serve as president because of worsening cognitive abilities or other health problems, and that Harris will become the leader of the free world.
