Kamala Harris was tasked the several months ago with leading the effort to address the illegal immigration crisis, yet there is no evidence that she has done anything.
According to reporting by Fox News, “Her assigned efforts on immigration, which include overseeing diplomatic efforts with Northern Triangle countries, fit into a broader trend of the administration delegating substantial foreign policy responsibilities to her.”
“So this new surge we’re dealing with now started with the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely and to – and to stop what’s happening,” Biden said when announcing that Harris would be taking the lead on illegal immigration.
“And so, this increase has been consequential, but the vice president has agreed – among the multiple other things that I have her leading – and I appreciate it – agreed to lead our diplomatic effort and work with those nations to accept re- – the returnees, and enhance migration enforcement at their borders – at their borders,” he continued.
As the administration is clearly trying to take some of the bigger tasks out of Joe Biden‘s hands, Kamala Harris is supposed to be demonstrating more leadership, but she isn’t.
Since she was given the task, Harris has not held a formal news conference. Unlike the Trump administration, the Biden administration seems to have forgotten about its promise of transparency.
The White House has attempted to claim that Kamala Harris was not actually supposed to be involved with the “border crisis,” instead saying she was focused on addressing the “root causes – not the border.”
It’s not surprising that Harris isn’t doing her job, since she seems to have no interest in it. Even the left-wing media had to call her out for her behavior after she made a joke when she was asked about whether she was going to visit the border.
