I guess I’m curious what they perceive the “root causes” of the border crisis to actually be.
Joe Biden announced on March 24 that he would be tasking Kamala Harris to lead the charge to get to the bottom of the migrant crisis, with the intent to both curbs the current flow of the migrants and implement long-term strategies.
Excuse me if I laugh just a little. This getting to the bottom of the migrant crisis is easier than passing legislation in DC. For this administration, not knowing the root cause of the migration from the northern triangle is asinine. It is poverty, lawlessness, and violence. The US offers jobs, healthcare, welfare, comparative wealth, and the likelihood of citizenship or, at least, illegal residence with impunity. What’s not to understand? This has been facilitated by the “president’s” open invitation to come into our country illegally, stay without any repercussions, enjoy the fruits of the labor of taxpaying Americans, and become a citizen (or not), assimilate (or not), but by all means, come here and please be sure to cast your ballot!
I guess I’m curious what they perceive the “root causes” of the border crisis to actually be. I was thinking it was the open invite to those wishing to cross illegally, but it’s probably a double-secret motivation that only VP Harris was able to uncover.
The GOP House Judiciary tweeted this on Friday: “Today would be a good day for Vice President Harris to visit the southern border.”
Why would they have to do this?
Harris hasn’t traveled down to the border to witness unaccompanied migrant children housed at the overcrowded Border Patrol facilities. However, Newsweek reports that Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, seemed to dismiss any idea that Harris was “in charge” of the border crisis and insisted she only is interested in the root causes.
This is a reasonable criticism of the VP. She should visit the border, be visible, talk to people, etc. She can certainly have others doing the legwork, but she should go herself at least a few times if she really wants to know something.
The question everyone should be asking is, why? Why won’t she go? My take is that she won’t go because what transpires at the border is Democrats’ policy, not a mistake. For whatever reason, they do it on purpose, and open border policy was Democrats’ main goal from the very beginning of the election cycle.
If you’ve been keeping up with the news, Harris’ has shown up in many other places across the country. White House aides claimed Harris spoke with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and planned to visit the regions. Still, as for now, there are no plans on the radar.
On April 14, Rep. Steve Scalise said at a news conference, “If she’s the vice president of the United States and the president put her in charge of this, Vice President Harris needs to go down to the border and see this for herself. Because maybe she would then encourage President Biden to reverse his policies that have failed.”
I guess the “root causes” that Biden commissioned Harris to discover weeks ago are so painful to acknowledge that running away from it is her safest bet for the time being. But remember this, America continues to suffer.
