Kamala Harris says she’ll soon visit the southern border, calls the crisis a ‘huge problem’

Vice President Kamala Harris had a bad start the week with a momentary clip of her laughing off a reporter’s question about whether or not she’ll visit the border with President Joe Biden. The optics were terrible, to say the least.

According to the Washington Examiner, Harris sat for what appeared to be a damage control interview on Wednesday morning, telling CBS News that she believes the situation on the border is a “huge problem,” while vowing to eventually take a trip to the border with Biden. 

What did she say?

The Biden administration seems to be slowly ramping up their descriptors of what’s actually happening at the border, but still hasn’t arrived at the point where they’ll label it a “crisis” like the rest of the country and the mainstream media already has.

“Look, it’s a huge problem. I’m not going to pretend it’s not,” Harris said on Wednesday. “Are we looking at overcrowding at the border in particular of these kids? Yes.”

Harris went on to say that the overwhelming number of unaccompanied, illegal migrant children should not be in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), rather, they should be under the wing of the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, ideally.

Given the sheer number of minors crossing the border, resources are obviously overwhelmed and federal agencies are clearly unable to process them fast enough, which has led to gross overcrowding of available facilities and has resulted in minors being held long-past the 72-hour legally mandated maximum detention time.

The vice president didn’t sound hopeful in her assessment of the crisis, saying “This is, however, not going to be solved overnight.”

Surprise visit

In what also appeared to be an attempt at damage control, the White House announced on Wednesday that a contingent of staffers and members of Congress will make a “surprise visit” to a minor holding facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas.

In what would usually be an event followed by a group of reporters, including those in the White House press pool, the Biden administration said that only one camera reporter will be allowed to accompany the group — a move that continues to raise questions about its campaign promises to be “transparent” with the public.

It’s clear to anyone in the media and anyone paying attention that the moves being made by the Biden administration are strategic with regard to controlling the narrative of what’s actually taking place on the border right now.

The administration took another massive PR hit on Monday when a number of photos were released by Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), a moderate Democrat, which showed the extreme overcrowding conditions inside of what he said were called “pods” where unaccompanied minors are held.

Only time will tell if Harris and Biden are able to find the time to visit the border to see for themselves just how bad it’s becoming, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon.

  4. These two clowns are a disaster to our country. It is difficult to recognize them as being in charge of anything other than a three penny circus.

  5. When is this horrid individual going to be brought to justice? When will the ACLU and the NAACP bring suit against her for the numerous Civil Rights violations she made as Attorney General in California!!

  6. It is worse than a disaster, it is a cluster Fk. Democrats are worthless when it comes to running a Country, don’t even believe they could run a lemonade stand that 9 and 10 year old’s can do.

  7. Would you surrender your firearm when you know that the Dems. want to disarm you so you can’t shoot back, when they come to kill you?

  8. Those so-called “minors” should not be in the custody of CBP or any other law enforcement agency. THEY SHOULD ALL HAVE BEEN TURNED AROUND IMMEDIATELY AND NOT ALLOWED IN OUR COUNTRY. PUT THEM ALL ON PLANES AND SEND THEM BACK TO THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR HOME COUNTRY. THAT WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM IN A SHORT TIME. WHEN THEIR FRIENDS SEE THEM BACK AT HOME, THEY WOULD REALIZE THAT THEY SHOULD NOT TRY TO COME HERE.

    Too bad we can’t deport that POS Harris to Jamaica or wherever her parents came from. And send that mental midget Biden back to his basement.

  9. Ha Ha Kamala never fully wakes up if it doesn’t concern or hurt her she is deaf…dumb and has no clue how to fix anything….whoever is running Joey n Kamala the US needs to know who it is…

  10. These two glorified con artists will Blunder-F*ck their way through the next 4 years. Hold on for a wild ride. The Supreme Court and the Justice Department could have straightened out this mess, but both totally dropped the ball. The elites are set for life and will come through this just fine, but the rest of us are *Royally* Screwed.

  11. Biden should be tried for treason as he is inviting terrorists and criminals to invade our country, risking our security, our citizens and our communities. He announced open borders and the terrorists and cartels are now flooding our borders. Not one person should be allowed to cross into our country without going through the legal process, but this administration is encouraging an invasion to harm our economy and our sovereignty. It is time to try them for treason.

  12. What is everyone upset about? Biden, like all other lying Democrats have said, “I have a plan.”. They don’t have any idea of how to fix their problem, just say they know how to fix things. It doesn’t matter that they’ve done nothing to fix any problems; they create more problems, just to justify their wanting more control and money for their projects. When Democrats say they have a plan; it’s best to run and hide. Their plans for tax increases always seem to be severely underestimated. Their plans for spending are severely underestimated. Their data for a project is usually severely overestimated, yet they act as though everything is a crisis and that action on their problem they created, has to be acted on immediately. It’s all a plan of keeping people scared into submission.

  13. ISN’T IT TIME TO IMPEACH 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 IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

    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!

  14. What is cruelest? Putting these children in those overcrowded cages (oh, sorry,! “Pods”) or sending them back to their parent, who, more than likely are right over the border in Mexico? If we are unable to house and feed them, Biden’s policy to encourage them to come over our border is a crewel joke! BTW, we have homelessness and hunger in the US that hasn’t been met. Oh, yeah, what about the super spreader conditions that overcrowding has caused? When they’re released, where will they quarantine?

  15. It is past time for congress to enact the 25th amendment. It seems to that they certainly have enough grounds.

  16. They need to finish the wall that President Trump started. Send the children back to theit family’s. Biden and Harris stole the White House together with the rest of the Dems.
    They are so corrupt I don’t know how they-can live with themselves.

  17. It’s bad enough to have fools in the White House, but, fools that can’t even do their job one iota !!! It’s time to get them out and replace them with someone who can do the job !!! Enough bull is enough – it’s time to get this nation on its footing again and get rid of the fools !! OR WE BECOME A THIRD WORLD NATION !!!

  18. These poor people don’t really care or want to care what they are facing with these kids. Many have not been raised to respect anyone. They need to be sent back to their parents and then let the parents come to the border with them, be in charge of them. If either one gets out of line, they need to be sent back home to wait for a while to try to come into the US. I’m sotrry, I think our Vets, the family who is out of jobs because of no fault of their own should be our main concern. Then when we have helped them get a job and a roof over their heads, go out to help those who are not doing so good in their own country.

  19. Heels up harris is wrong again these kids all should be in the custody of their home countries goverment. They shouldn’t be in custody of the US for longer than to get their information and send them home. This is all bidens BS.
