(PresidentialInsider.com)- Vice President Kamala Harris, who was tasked with handling President Joe Biden’s border crisis, laughed off questions about her lack of action on Wednesday.
Classic Kamala Harris – cackle and shrug off a question until it goes away!
During a Northern Triangle security roundtable discussion, Harris attempted to shift the blame on the crisis and divert criticism about her lack of action by pointing the finger at Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
“The president has asked Secretary Mayorkas to address what is going on at the border and he has been working very hard on that and is showing some progress because of his hard work,” Harris said, without explaining what that progress is.
“I have been asked to lead the issue of dealing with root causes in the Northern Triangle, similar to what the then-Vice President did many years ago,” Harris continued. “But I will tell you these are issued that aren’t going to be addressed overnight.”
Which is true. The border crisis is the worst it has been since the Obama administration and is just getting worse by the day. In February, some 100,000 illegal aliens were apprehended by border agents. That number increased to 170,000 in March.
So far, neither President Joe Biden nor Vice President Kamala Harris has admitted any fault in the matter, refusing to even acknowledge the possibility – or likelihood – that offering an eight-year path to citizenship for illegal aliens might be responsible for the massive surge on the border.
As Harris discussed the crisis, which has seen tens of thousands of innocent illegal alien children forced into detention facilities designed to manage only a fraction of the capacity they are holding today, she can be heard cackling and laughing.
On the issue of traveling to the border – something that Harris still hasn’t done – she simply said that she has “plans in the works to go to Guatemala as soon as possible” and that she also plans to visit Mexico.
But she still has no plans to visit the border and see for herself the cramped conditions illegal aliens are being forced to live in – significantly worse than at any time during the Trump administration when the number of border crossings plummeted as a result of the Remain in Mexico policy and the border wall.
Will Kamala Harris ever take this issue seriously?
