President Joe Biden has now reportedly chosen Kamala Harris to oversee the unfolding crisis on America’s southern border.
A choice which seems almost inexplicable considering Harris recently openly laughed at a reporter after she was asked if she had plans to visit the border.
As The Daily Wire reports:
President Joe Biden put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of his efforts to fix the border crisis that has erupted under his leadership after he reversed many of the policies that the Trump administration used to secure the United States-Mexico border.
“With the move, Biden hopes to show Americans he’s taking the border situation seriously after facing stiff criticism from Republicans as the flow of migrants has increased since he took office in January,” The Associated Press reported. “But the high-profile assignment for Harris, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 and is expected to run for the White House again in the future, could be politically fraught.”
The move comes after Harris was widely criticized this week for laughing when she was asked if she was going to visit the southern border to view the crisis. Thousands of children have been detained in federal custody after crossing the border, many of whom have been kept for periods of time longer than legally allowed and in facilities that have been described as “akin to jails” where they have been subjected to “horrific conditions” that include “disease, hunger and overcrowding.”
