Republicans are making a push to remove Vice President Kamala Harris from her fake, do-nothing “border czar” job as an invasion of illegal migrants continues to overwhelm the United States.
Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson (R) introduced a resolution with 26 co-sponsors calling on President Biden to remove Harris from the role, the Daily Caller reported.
Jackson’s resolution says that the southern border “is less safe now than it ever has been” and calls on the Biden administration to acknowledge that “border security is national security.”
There were 164,973 encounters at the border in February, a 7% jump from January and a shocking 63% increase from last February. The U.S. is already on pace for 1 million encounters just six months into the new fiscal year.
In a statement, Jackson said that Harris’s negligence toward the border is “by design.”
“Rather than doing her job, Harris sits back and watches as illegal immigration skyrockets, countless people at home and abroad are victimized by drug and human trafficking, and CBP officers are left without resources or support from the Biden Administration,” Jackson told the Daily Caller.
“Make no mistake – Harris’ approach is by design, and she must be stopped,” he added.
Harris finally visited the border in June after coming under heavy criticism for her failure to do so. The vice president steered clear of the most impacted sectors of the border, however, and she hasn’t been back to the border since.
Rather than acknowledge her and Biden’s negligence in refusing to enforce the immigration laws, Harris has focused on so-called “root causes” of mass migration that are outside the United States’ control, such as poverty and crime in Central America.
“A single canned photo op and pointless foreign trips to Northern Triangle countries on the taxpayers’ dime are not cutting it,” Jackson added.
It isn’t just Republicans calling for Harris to be replaced. Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar said he “moved on” after Harris made it clear she wasn’t interested in addressing the border.
“I don’t think she’s, with all due respect, put the effort in there…We’ve got to look at other folks that have the expertise on that,” Cuellar said.
