Harris silent on border crisis, hasn’t held press conference since being tasked with handling the border

It’s been almost three weeks since President Joe Biden tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with addressing the surge of migrants crossing America’s southern border.

Yet despite her role as “border czar,” Harris has yet to actually visit the border and hasn’t even held a press conference since being assigned to the position, the Washington Examiner reported

“I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this. When she speaks, she speaks for me. She doesn’t have to check with me,” Biden said in announcing Harris’ assignment, according to Fox News.

Plenty of traveling, just not to the border

Despite Biden’s ringing endorsement, Harris hasn’t been doing a whole lot of speaking on the border, period.

Furthermore, although she’s found time to travel to her home state of California, as well as a few other U.S. cities, she hasn’t visited the border.

“The vice president enjoyed an Easter weekend at her home in southern California but did not visit the nearby southern border,” the Examiner reported. “During that same weekend, Harris stopped by her native Oakland, the first time doing so since winning the vice presidency, where she traveled with Gov. Gavin Newsom to a water treatment plant to raise support for the White House’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan,” the outlet continued.

Harris also took a trip to Chicago to visit a local bakery and promote the COVID vaccine.

“No laughing matter”

In an op-ed for Fox News, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel slammed Harris for her abdication of responsibility on the border crisis.

“It would have been incredibly easy for Harris to add a stop on her trip to show her support and to console, comfort and lead on the ground,” McDaniel wrote. “The flight time from LA to San Diego is about 30 minutes.”

Last month, Harris burst out laughing after being asked by a reporter if she had any plans to visit the border, Fox News reported.

That drew a sharp response from Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R), who told the network that what’s happening on the border “is no laughing matter.”

“I’ve been there, as you can imagine, on numerous occasions,” he said. “But the Border Patrol is telling us that you cannot build enough facilities, you cannot build enough capacity to keep up with the expected increase in flow of people coming across the border.”

  2. Harris should be scared and worried. She is not doing her job. She was given a task to do and has not done a darn thing about it. Most jobs people would be fired for not doing the task they were given. A piece of cake in Chicago is more important that the illegals trying to get into our country and the children being held in “cages”. Nothing she will have to say now will be taken seriously. I guess when you have a loose goose woman in the VP spot she can do whatever she wants. It seems like she has been doing it all her working life.

  3. What do you expect from either one of them, they are unfit for the job! Biden has been in
    politics for 47 years, did nothing for America but line his pockets snd that of the Biden crime family. And Kamala is nothing but California’s communist ho. She is as dumb as they come. She’s an anchor baby, parents dropped 2 of them! Kamala picked up a family trait of lying! She and Biden both are a disgrace to our country!

    1. Obama is telling him what to do and probably writing his speeches also. If you watch real close when Biden is answering questions, in the background you can probably catch a glimpse of Obama.

  4. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    Harris needs to be fired , in other words impeached and now for not doing her job . She don’t care about this country or the citizens of this country. She should have not beed voted in as the V.P. of this country.

  5. I charge her and Joe wit Malfeasance, Misfeasance, and Nonfeasance of duty, in there official duties. They need to be impeached and removed from office, never to hold an elective office in their lifetime. To go along with this Nancy Pelosi also needs to be included.

  6. Bidens legacy undo everything trump did with no other plan and someone is telling him what to. Democrats borrowing money I guess to bankrupt the country and make the once great America a third world country. I guess nothing last forever

  7. Where the heck is Harris? Harris get your behind down to the border NOW. You are not doing your job. If it were me I would fire you, I know I’ll never vote for you or Joe. You’re too un-American to me. You dislike 1/2 the people of America and speak horribly about them when their just like you but smarter and wiser.

  8. Kamala Hoe don’t have to do anything all she has to do is tell the communist in the oval that she is taking care of it and he will believe it cause he doesn’t have a clue what is going on he’s a puppet his brain is fried he is a idiot not no president dictator Joe Brain dead Biden

  9. Could it possibly be that the Dem Party told Harris not to go to the border? For whatever reason….. and who knows what that might be! The knuckleheads running that Party have mush for brains!

  10. I THINK THAT BOTH BIDEN AND HARRIS SHOULD BOTH GO TO THE BORDER AND SEE JUST WHAT KIND OF MESS THEY HAVE STARTED. AND THEN ADMIT THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM AND LET THE ICE AND BORDER PATROL HANDLE THE PROBLEM WITH CLOSING THE BORDER AND STOP LETTING PEOPLE CROSS OVER. SHIP BACK ALL THE CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN DROPPED AT THE BORDER AND SEND ALL THAT HAVE CROSSED OVER TO BE RETURNED TO THE BORDER TO MAKE THEIR WAY BACK TO THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNTRIES.

  11. Why picking on Harris?! Yes, she was picked by Joe Biden, but rather we shall pay more attention how fible our governing system is!? There is no constructive work, just looking for guiltiest. There are farts sitting in Capitol Hills for years, doing nothing for Americans!? And all election fraud is result of corruption, so is border and immigration haos. Shame to all our Government!

  12. Biden should go to the border. First and foremost it is still his responsibility. The two of them, as well as the rest of the left/dems and the elite, are pathetic. They are accomplishing their goal… destroy the US. It’s sad that they don’t care about the children, who are being abused. Impeach them. I worry that pelosi would be president? Those that aren’t doing anything should be jailed for causing the havock they have created.

  13. The BLAME LIES WITH NANCY & SCHUMER. They claim they are the leaders of their FASCIST PARTY. SHAME on them for allowing this FARCE to be put on the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Making s the LAFFING STOCK of the WORLD while he destroys the GREATEST GOERNMENT and COUNTRY ever to EXIST on this PLANET. ALL do to the WANT of POWER , GREED and HATE. Hey BARRAK, you did a great job wit you deep state, And you now have your Poppet in position to FINNISH your agenda !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Give me a break….she is panicking ? This disgusting human being is too arrogant to even grasp that concept. She knows the puppet masters and the media will have her back. If not she has used her back for years to gain political capital . Willie Brown as an example….he “served ” her well.
