Kamala Harris blames poverty for migrant surge, says border crisis won’t be resolved ‘overnight’

Kamala Harris’ excuses are starting to get pretty absurd.

In her latest attempt at deflecting from the White House’s brazen negligence, the vice president told CNN that the crisis at the U.S.–Mexico border will not be solved “overnight” as she blamed deeply entrenched “root causes” like poverty in Central America for continuing to drive waves of immigrants north.

“It’s a complex issue. If this were easy, it would have been handled years ago,” Harris said Sunday, according to Breitbart.

“Most people don’t want to leave”

Many have been wondering just what Harris has been doing since President Joe Biden chose her last month to “respond” to the border crisis. More than 30 days later, she still has not been to the border — and neither has Biden — leaving many with the impression that she is afraid of the responsibility.

Harris did her damnedest to fake it, though, when CNN’s Dana Bash asked her on Sunday to more precisely explain what “success” would look like.

As Breitbart noted, the vice president provided little clarity as she responded with several minutes of platitudinous word salad about giving people in the Northern Triangle “hope” that “help is on the way.”

In all the stumbling and stammering was a nugget of wisdom: many people in Central America are very poor.

“I come at this issue from the perspective that most people don’t want to leave home,” Harris said, according to Breitbart. “Most people don’t want to leave home, and when they do, it’s usually for one of two reasons. They’re fleeing some harm, or they cannot stay and satisfy the basic necessities of life.”

Harris’ big deflection

Harris is right about one thing: poverty in places like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador is not disappearing anytime soon. No one would deny that it’s a factor in immigration. But is that the problem America expects her to solve?

There are things that can be done immediately to address the crisis, but Harris and Biden would have to acknowledge the crisis in the first place — and the pivotal role of Biden’s policies in driving it. Instead, they want to absolve themselves of responsibility by focusing on “root causes” in Central America outside of their control.

This all puts Harris in an awkward spot, as she must pretend she’s doing something. The result is shameless performances like Sunday’s on CNN.

Harris is obviously clueless, but then again, what is there for her to say? She’s not even trying.

  1. A reply for what purpose and to what comment? Should I ask the obvious question? Where is Stoney Brook University and does anybody really care where it is located?

  3. When your a committed Marxist it will always be about the Poor. Considering
    the Democrats have never really lifted up the American Poor just gave them a
    Handout and a lousy Education to keep our Black Brothers and Sisters on
    Uncle Sam’s Plantation and in the Dem Party.

  4. The Corrupt Democrats have no body to blame for all their stupid mistakes on now. The Democrats have planned everything that has happened so far and the American people are starting to realize that this is not what the people want. But the corrupt Democrats don’t care what we want anymore. Now we the people have to figure out how to get rid of these Traitors before they Destroy America and everything it stands for.

  5. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
