President Joe Biden tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with leading efforts to stem the
flow of people coming to the southern border, “I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this” than Harris, the president said at the White House. “When she speaks, she speaks for me, doesn’t have to check with me.”
Setting aside questions of who has to check with whom in the Biden – Harris White House, this can only mean that Biden really hates his VP and wants to tank her future political prospects.
Why else put your Vice President in charge of fixing a problem you created? And hamstring her options by taking the best solutions to the problem off the table.
After all, as former President Donald Trump said:
We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot. Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast.
The pathetic, clueless performance of Secretary Mayorkas on the Sunday Shows today was a national disgrace. His self-satisfied presentation—in the middle of the massive crisis he helped engineer—is yet more proof he is incapable of leading DHS. Even someone of Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens then the whole world will come.
And President Trump was right. Biden, among other reversals of Trump-era immigration policies, reinstituted catch-and-release, halted construction of the border wall and ended the Trump administration’s practice of expelling unaccompanied minors.
Arizona governor Doug Ducey labeled Vice President Kamala Harris the “worst possible choice” to lead the Biden administration’s response to the ongoing migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, in comments to reporters in Tucson on Wednesday.
“She’s about the worst possible choice that one could make,” Ducey said. “At no point in her career has she given any indication that she considers the border a problem or a serious threat.”
Ducey added, “If President Biden’s intent was to show that he’s taking this issue seriously, he’s really done the exact opposite here.”
But it was Senator Ted Cruz who really nailed it, when he said:
My reaction to that appointment is, is, wow, Joe Biden really doesn't like Kamala Harris. This border crisis is the biggest political mess Joe Biden has. It threatens to derail the entire administration. So what does he do? He looks to his vice president and says, you take it. It's your problem now, and listen, unfortunately, she is not going to be able to solve this crisis. Why? Because they've created this crisis because of their political partisan commitments that they can't back away from…
So why are we having this crisis at the border? Because when Joe Biden got elected, the first thing he did was stop construction of the border wall. He reinstituted 'Catch and Release,' the failed policy, so that now when we detain illegal immigrants, we let them go. We give them a court date sometime in the future, and many of them never show up, and he ended the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, which was this incredibly successful foreign policy accomplishment where the Trump administration had negotiated with Mexico that illegal immigrants from Central America would remain in Mexico while their asylum proceedings were moving forward. All of those had produced real success...
But because the Democrats campaigned on saying ICE is evil, securing the border is wrong because the Democrats support open borders. Kamala Harris doesn't have anything to do other than go down there and let everybody go. I mean, that's the only option that is consistent with the political promises she's made…
However, in the face of the obvious disaster the Biden – Harris policies have engendered; Harris took the one option that was sure to gain her media support, blame Trump: “The surge we’re dealing with now started [with] the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely and to stop what’s happening,” Biden said Wednesday. “This increase has been consequential.”
Consequential indeed. Newt Gingrich predicted during an appearance on Laura Ingraham that the current crisis will likely lead to more than one million illegal immigrants being housed, clothed and fed on the taxpayers' dime by summer. Only someone who really hates this country and wants to “transform” it would intentionally impose this national security and public health threat on their fellow citizens.
Kamala Harris isn’t going to do anything to stem the flow of illegal aliens into this country because she and Biden and the Democrats intentionally started it.
We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044), you’re your Representative and Senators that blaming Trump isn’t going to end the invasion at our southern border and that Congress, led by Republicans, must act to restart the Wall, end catch-and-release and reinstitute the remain in Mexico policy among other deterrents to illegal immigration.
Catch and Release
Senator Ted Cruz
Remain in Mexico
