“Harris will spend the week touting President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan and touring sites dispensing the COVID-19 vaccine”
A couple of weeks ago, Joe Biden announced he made Kamala Harris his point person on the situation at the border. He said she would be able to handle things and answer questions without having to check in with him.
Since then, she has been conspicuously absent at the southern border.
What is she doing? She is visiting all kinds of other places.

Kamala Harris, In Charge Of Border Crisis, Visits Water Plant Near San Francisco, Vaccine Site In Chicago
Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the ongoing child migrant crisis at the United States-Mexico border, but instead of visiting the ever-increasing number of detention camps housing unaccompanied children, many of which are now far above capacity, Harris will spend the week touting President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan and touring sites dispensing the COVID-19 vaccine.
On Monday, Harris joined embattled California governor Gavin Newsom in Oakland, California, at a water treatment facility that the Los Angeles Times noted is expected to benefit from the multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure plan proposed last week.
“The trip included a tour with the governor of the kind of water-treatment facility that could benefit from the proposed infrastructure plan President Biden unveiled last week. It includes more than $100 billion for a variety of water projects, including replacing lead pipes and improving groundwater storage in the West,” according to the outlet.
Harris gave a short speech on the importance of “water equity.”
People have noticed her no-show act.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel writes at FOX News:
Where’s Kamala? Biden’s border point person can’t be bothered to show up. Here’s why
Don’t believe the daily lies from Joe Biden’s administration: there is in fact a raging crisis at our southern border.
Customs and Border Protections (CBP) expects to have encountered over 171,000 migrants in the month of March alone, including 18,800 unaccompanied children. In March 2020, under the strong leadership of President Trump, the CBP saw only 34,000 migrants.
When in September 2019 Biden told illegal immigrants ”you should come” to America, they clearly listened. This is Joe Biden’s problem.
Now it’s Kamala Harris’ problem, too. Two weeks ago, Biden named Harris as his “point person” to address the ongoing surge of men, women and children flooding our immigration system. Given the scale of the crisis – exemplified by children being thrown over walls and the clear potential of a COVID-19 super-spreading event – one would expect the vice president to immediately jump on Air Force Two and get to the border. Right?
Wrong. Instead, she’s joining her boss in refusing to go see the crisis that their reckless, backward policies have created.
I couldn't help but notice that Harris is nowhere near the border, and that her border leadership thus far has consisted of doing literally nothing https://t.co/q4s2PH6Ics

Joe Biden's lack of leadership on the Border Crisis is a National Security Risk.
Kamala Harris is too busy cackling and doing photo ops in Oakland to be bothered by it.

In Kamala’s defense, what is she supposed to do, go down there and shut the border? They want this, they want what’s happening, so why would she do anything?DONATE
