El Paso? How about McAllen? Laredo? How about going to places where the Border Patrol is completely overwhelmed?
Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed Vice President Kamala Harris will visit the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday with Home Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
Psaki did not provide many details. She said the trip “is part of the coordinated effort between her office, her work, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Health and Human Services, to continue to address the root causes and work in coordination to get the situation under control.”
Biden picked Harris as his border czar over 90 days ago. She has literally laughed off any suggestion or questions about her visiting the border.
Former President Donald Trump announced last week he will tour the border on June 30th with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
“We made an assessment within our government about when it was an appropriate time,” said Psaki when asked if Trump’s visit had an impact on the date.
Jen Psaki is asked what spurred Kamala Harris' decision to visit the border this Friday.

Jen Psaki won't say if Trump's visit to the border prompted today's news that VP Harris would make her own trip, telling @KellyO, "I don't think our view is that the VP making a trip to the border..is going to prevent or change what the former President of the United States does" pic.twitter.com/2NFr8QAaJm

Let’s talk about El Paso. You know Robert O’Rourke will make an appearance since it’s his hometown.
You all know I try to cover the border crisis as much as possible. I covered points of the border. I remember reading about El Paso getting 19 new processing coordinators, but that’s it.DONATE
