After all but ignoring the issues taking place on the southern border, Kamala Harris has decided she is going to visit the U.S. – Mexico border, finally, and she’s doing it quickly, as in this Friday.
Okay, that’s a quick turnaround, and it makes you wonder what’s changed where the person appointed to be in charge of the crisis taking place there is finally going for a first-hand visit.
One person thinks he knows where the sense of urgency came from. Donald Trump is going to make a high profile visit to the border himself on June 30th with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and he thinks that, and that alone, was the impetus for Harris to point Air Force 2 in that direction.
Here’s what Trump had to say via a statement through his PAC called Save America. “After months of ignoring the crisis at the Southern Border, it is great that we got Kamala Harris to finally go and see the tremendous destruction and death that they’ve created—a direct result of Biden ending my very tough but fair Border policies.
“Harris and Biden were given the strongest Border in American history. And now, it is by far the worst in American history. If Governor Abbott and I weren’t going there next week, she would have never gone!”
It’s hard for politicians to agree on anything, but bashing Harris for ignoring the issues on the border is something that united Republicans and Democrats. They both were perplexed with her inaction.
Migrant crossings are at a record level, and Harris will finally get a look for herself as she heads to El Paso, Texas eight days before Trump arrives.
