Kamala Harris sets date for meeting with Mexican president as border crisis continues

More than a month after being tasked by President Joe Biden with addressing an ongoing surge in migration at America’s southern border, Vice President Kamala Harris is finally making plans to do her job.

According to the Washington Examiner, the Biden administration announced over the weekend that Harris would be meeting with Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador early next month to discuss, among other things, “the root causes of migration.”

“Deepen the partnership”

The news was first revealed in a statement from the vice president’s office on Saturday. The statement was shared on Twitter by Julie Chung, who the Examiner said “serves as acting assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs.”

“On May 7, Vice President Kamala Harris will meet virtually with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who will be joined by Secretary of Foreign Relations Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon and Secretary of Economy Tatiana Clouthier Carrillo,” the statement read.

It went on: “This meeting will deepen the partnership between our countries to achieve the common goals of prosperity, good governance, and addressing the root causes of migration.”

“Two things at once”

The announcement comes on the heels of a declaration from President Biden earlier this month that the U.S. would be significantly increasing the number of refugees eligible for admission into the country.

“We’re going to increase the number,” he told reporters, according to a separate report from the Examiner.

“The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people,” the president added. “We couldn’t do two things at once, but now, we are going to increase the number.”

The numbers don’t lie

But while Biden and Harris may feel they’re making progress on the immigration front, it seems many Americans don’t agree. As migrants flood into the country at rates not seen in nearly two decades, voters are apparently growing impatient.

A Fox News poll published Sunday showed that some 46% of voters believe America’s border security is worse now, under Biden, than it was two years ago. Just 17% said the same in 2018 under then-President Donald Trump.

Worse still for Biden: according to Fox, a full 56% of voters polled “think the increase of migrants trying to enter the U.S. is ‘completely’ or ‘mostly’ happening because Biden won the election.”

If Biden and Harris want to turn things around, it’s going to take more than a virtual meeting to do it.

  3. This bunch of iodits in washington should be in a playground somewhere playing with legos. I have never in my life seen such ioditic bunch and the rest of you are not RECALLING, IMPEACHING, or just showing them the door. They would not have enough sense to find it for themselves. What is going on with the rest of you??? Haven’t heard a peep out of you all. Did they not pay you since Jan 20.?????? Do you not have a respect for the rest of the COUNTRY. IF NOT, GET OUT YOURSELF. I’ll bet someone will show you what it looks like. MY OPINION. DISCLOSURES. GET MOVING SO WE SAVE OUT COUNTRY.

  4. Virtually? Is she afraid they might kidnap her or want to keep her? They can keep her with quite a few American’s blessings cause she does NOTHING but cackle when she makes a mistake which is often. I know how she got in to politics and it ain’t from college. I do not think she would be in danger of anyone in South America wanting to keep her.

  5. WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead 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?

    I strongly 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 CONCLICT 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!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    1. Thanks for the numbers. They do not answer emails unless there is big money involved but maybe a phone call will get thru to the representative and not just their trash can holder.
