Texas governor urges Harris to ‘act immediately’ on border crisis: ‘You have a duty’

It’s been weeks since President Joe Biden named Kamala Harris as his point-person on the crisis at the U.S.–Mexico border, and aside from a few phone calls and brief statements to the press, the vice president has apparently yet to act on her new duties.

Now, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is taking Harris to task over her inaction. According to Breitbart, the governor sent a letter last week urging the VP to face the consequences of what he described as the Biden administration’s “open border policies.”

“Now that President Biden has named you Border Czar in charge of the administration’s response, I want to express to you the threats and challenges caused by this administration’s open border policies,” Abbott wrote in his letter, dated March 30.

“Duty to investigate”

According to Abbott, Biden’s policies have “embolden[ed] and enrich[ed] cartels, smugglers, and human traffickers who continue to ramp up their criminal operations.”

The governor lamented that unaccompanied children — thousands of them, according to reports — are being “lured” by criminal organizations into “inhumane conditions” and exposed to “abuse and terror” on their ways to the U.S.–Mexico border.

“We have a duty to investigate these border crossings so we can protect the victims of human trafficking that have already crossed our borders, crack down on the perpetrators of this heinous crime, and ensure federal policies do not allow — or even incentivize — such behavior,” the governor wrote.

Unanswered questions

Abbott also urged Harris and others in the Biden administration “to interview every unaccompanied minor coming across the border to determine if any child has been harmed, groomed, or victimized by human traffickers in any way,” and called for transparency — something that has been far from common in Biden’s White House thus far.

“For weeks,” Abbott wrote, “the State of Texas has repeatedly sought answers from the Biden administration on several key questions that will help combat this crisis, yet these questions remain unanswered.”

Time to act

In Abbott’s eyes, the time for action is now — if not yesterday. Reports indicate that more than 172,000 migrants crossed into the U.S. just last month, including almost 20,000 children, a record-setting figure.

“In your role as Border Czar, you have a duty to these children and the American people to act immediately,” the Texas governor wrote in his letter to Harris.

“I implore you to act immediately to protect these children, secure the border, and end this crisis,” he declared.

  1. HO Harris will never go to the border she doesn’t want to face what her and sleepy joe done to this country they need to be taken out of office ASAP

    1. AMEN brother! I will never abide by any policies, laws or executive orders this illegitimate President/Admin or illegitimate Senare/Congress, try to impose on the “FREE” people of this country! All i can say is if you dont own a firearm then get one ASAP and if you do then get all the ammo u can while you still can!!! I am selling my home in my bluest slave state and fleeing to a totally RED & FREE state! Whats sad is that my state charges 3Xs as much sales tax on a persons property when they sell it if they plan to move out of the state ! So if i want to keep most of my profits from my home i must keep a mailing address in this shi*hole for at least two years! So basically its a penalty if you want to move out of the state!!!? WTF? So i will keep that mailing address in N.J. while i flee to a property in a totally RED state that has no risk of turning even purple before i die! I do not want to pick up arms against my own country in order to retain my freedoms and liberties! Doing that again would mentally strain me! Fighting in war is not something that can be turned on and off! But, if i have too i will in order to remain a FREE AMERICAN!!! May for ever and always “only” GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    Biden and Harris don’t want to do any thing about the crisis at the southern border because they caused it and now they really don’t know just what to do about it.

    Bot we got one heck of a president don’t we. A guy that causes all kind of bad things to this country and the people of this country.

  6. As I wrote before. All those migrant (collected to become Liberal voting pawns), we desperately need to get to them before the Demi Cruds gets control of them. If we can’t ship them back, teach all to become Republican supporters, to save our declining society.

    Otherwise our existence will be an awful lifetime hellish experience. This is V-E-R-Y critical for our safety and freedom. Teach the border jumpers to become accountable conservative people.

    In the ways Biden is braking the laws of this country along with Harris doing the very same thing , they both need to be impeached for braking the laws of this country. NO one is above the law and I don’t care who they are .

    1. Michael
      You are 100% Right But why is KNOW ONE doing any thing about What he Has Done I can’t UNDERSTAND Biden thinks he has Done a GREAT JOB He Has Stolen Money Which belonged to the Wall LIED so Many Time Yet NO ONE Does ANYTHING NO wONDER hE THINK HE IS GOD

  8. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    The American people of this country need to wake up and open their eyes wide and see just what is going on. The citizens of this country really need to take action and now.

  9. This is just ONE of the big messes Joe and his “PEN” have caused. It is past time for Congress or the Military to step in if America is to saved from total destruction. The people who are pulling the string of Joe plan for America to be destroyed and Joe will be the “fall guy” and Harris has no idea what she should do. Next in line is Nasty Nancy and we sure can not have her and her posse in control !!!! I doubt Congress can work together long enough without fighting so looks like it will have to be the military !!!! General Flynn !! WHERE ARE YOU ????

  10. Stealing the WHITE HOUSE did NOT make Biden president nor HIS PICK Harris V.P. they cannot force that on me neither of those criminal have a clue of what their doing, PLAYING HOUSE !

    1. I so agree !!! They are lost and the more they stumble around and take “orders” from the string pullers the worse this mess becomes !!!!

  11. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    We have a lot of people in our government who don’t care about this country or the citizens of this country. People like this should be taken completely out of our government and now.

  12. Harris, and Biden, are irresponsible people. They didn’t think things through before they even ran for office. Perhaps the titles are all they wanted. I used to think that they were puppets to a greater group, but now I’m not so sure. I think they’re being inept all on their own. People need to figure out how to de-seat them. We need people who are going to keep America safe and prosperous not run it into the ground. It’s all so sad and infuriating.

  13. Kamala Harris’ refusal to follow the order of the President of the United States to take charge of the border crisis is guilty of Dereliction of Duty. Any DOD employee who willingly refuses to follow the direct orders of their superior are subject to termination from their position in office and in some instances be imprisoned. Why is she being treated differently than any other DOD employee? I am so tired of seeing federal employees breaking the law and being provide partial treatment based on their political status. Where has the law of justice gone?

  14. Why is this not some form of treason for letting this happen and not doing nothing to not even trying to stop it. The whole Biden administration should go! Enough said.

  15. There are none so blind as those who refuse too see. The Biden Nazi, Communist, Democratic Regime are putting in place the Apocalypse of the American Nation. Wake up America and SEE!!!!!!!!!!

  16. We don’t have too much longer to deal with these Devels destroying this Great Country because GOD is NOT going to let it go on much longer. The last Trump will be heard soon and GOD will take over and the the Politians and fake news people will take there well deserved home in Hell for eternety. I would say today would not be too soon. Pray on because he has us in his arms and won’t let go. His grace and mercy will be with us until we go to be with him for eternety.

  17. “Kamala Harris Gets Bad News, She’s Toast”. Oh give me a break! This unprincipled , callous kneed bimbo isn’t going anywhere. The Demos don’t care what us peons think. There is only one solution to this. Think about it. While your doing that, lose the click bait sensationalist headlines and report the news. You and other conservative websites who indulge in this junior high school type of “journalism” are starting to alienate serious readers. You’re starting to look stupid.
