Republican Representative Ashley Hinson spoke on the House floor about her bill, stating that it would prevent Harris “from using taxpayer dollars to travel internationally before seeing the southern border crisis firsthand.”
“Vice President Harris was named as the administration’s point person on the illegal immigration crisis at our southern border 80 days ago, and this crisis is worsening by the day. Yet the vice president has refused to go to the border herself, and talk to the brave law enforcement officers — the men and women who are fighting this on the front lines. This out of sight, out of mind approach is a disgrace,” Rep. Hinson said.
“Vice President Harris needs to see the crisis for herself and take action,” she continued. “And that is exactly what my ‘See the Crisis Act’ will force her to do.”
“This bill will prevent the vice president from traveling internationally on the taxpayers’ dime until she visits the southern border and reports back to the American people on how the administration will secure our border,” Hinson added. “So I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle tonight to join me in defeating the previous question and holding the administration accountable for the border crisis.”
🚨 House Democrats just BLOCKED consideration of the See the Crisis Act
This bill would prevent @VP Kamala Harris from using taxpayer funds to travel internationally — until she visits the southern border

The fact that Kamala Harris is still openly refusing to visit the border and isn’t being held accountable for it is a disgrace.
The mainstream media and the Democrats are allowing her to completely fail at her duties, and ignoring her cackling laughter at any suggestion that she should go to the border. Meanwhile, she is traveling internationally while American taxpayers are still locked down in their homes.
Will Harris ever be held accountable?
