Vice President Kamala Harris was blasted by Americans on Tuesday after her weak response to visiting the nation’s southern border during the growing immigration crisis.
During an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Harris was asked when she would visit the border.
Harris responded, “We’ve been to the border. We’ve seen the border.”
“You Haven’t Been to the Border”
When Holt answered, “You haven’t been to the border,” highlighting he had personally asked about her own travel.
Harris said, “And I haven’t been to Europe,” followed by nervous laughter.
She added, “I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn’t get it.
Holt: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?”
Harris: “We’ve been to the border. We’ve been the border.”
Holt: “YOU haven’t been to the border.”
Harris: “…..and I haven’t been to Europe. I don’t understand the point you’re making.” pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6

A Big Difference
There’s a big difference between visiting the border and visiting Europe. America didn’t have 178,000 illegal immigrants enter the nation from Europe in April.
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said Tuesday on Fox News that, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris could fix the border crisis tomorrow by ending ‘catch and release’ and by reinstating the Remain in Mexico policy.
“But neither Kamala or Joe are willing to do that.”

Cruz is right. It’s not an issue of whether America can protect its border. It’s whether it will.
The same is true regarding whether Harris will visit the nation’s southern border. It’s not whether she can. It’s whether she will.
