Since being appointed point person on the border surge by Joe Biden, Kamala Harris has criminally neglected her duties and refused to visit the scene where massive immigration and violent crime is underway in unprecedented ferocity.
Harris has amassed intense backlash from Republicans and Democrats alike for her refusal to see the border destruction first-hand since being put in charge of the ongoing issue in March.
But it seems that Kamala has bowed to the pressure and has planned a visit to El Paso, Texas, on Friday. She will be joined by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas during her trip.
The news of Harris’ border visit comes after Former President Donald Trump accepted an invitation from Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbott to visit the border the Biden-Harris administration has worked to destroy. He, along with a group of GOP lawmakers, plan to highlight the glaring difference in approach between the two administrations. Trump will demonstrate how his policies incentivized would-be illegal immigrants to remain in their home countries until they took the proper legal steps to immigrate into the United States. Biden has since reversed or destroyed all of Trump’s policies, a main driver behind the current surge in crime we’re witnessing today.
Kamala has argued that she is tacking the “root cause” of northern migration to the US-Mexico border, discussing the invisible monster of “climate change” with leaders from Central American countries. She’s routinely pushed back and laughed off all criticism that neither she nor the president have witnessed for themselves the criminal result of their policies.
After her visit to Guatemala and Mexico, Harris sat down for an interview with Lester Holt from NBC news which drew the ire of many who wish to see Trump’s policies reinstated. On numerous occasions she laughed off the interviewer’s questions on why she’s yet to visit the US-Mexico border, saying:
“Well, I haven’t been to Europe either. I mean, I don’t understand the point you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of border security.”
Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn't get it.
Holt: "Do you have any plans to visit the border?"
Harris: "We've been to the border. We've been the border."
Holt: "YOU haven't been to the border."
Harris: "…..and I haven't been to Europe. I don't understand the point you're making." pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6

She’s since repeatedly snapped at reporters for asking similar questions about her absence from the border:
“Kamala Harris’s first foreign trip in one sizzle reel.”

Since Biden assumed office, the number of illegal border crossings have skyrocketed to numbers not seen in America’s history. In May alone, over 180,000 migrants were apprehended according to statistics from the Customs and Border Protection.
More than 112,00 of those migrants were denied entrance due to Title 42, a public health order put in place by the Trump administration in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The sheer number of unaccompanied migrant children crossing the border have concerned many critics of the administration . In March, more than 19,000 children were apprehended without a parent or an adult to accompany the. The number has begun to decrease, but remains well above any record set by the Trump administration.
On Wednesday, The New York Times reported some migrants rejected for asylum under the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy will have their cases reconsidered by the Department of Homeland Security.
Earlier this week, it was reported the Biden administration was contemplating ending the enforcement of Title 42 as it relates to migrant families.
In early June, Biden officially ended the Migrant Protection Protocols, which allowed border officials to send migrants back to Mexico to wait for their cases to make it through the crowded U.S. immigration system.
