Vice President Kamala Harris prepares to check out the United States southern border with Mexico on Friday, almost 3 months after President Joe Biden put her in charge of suppressing the circulation of migrant arrivals.
Republicans have actually hammered Harris and Biden for declining to check out the border face to face throughout the very first months of their administration in the middle of an increase in migrants showing up there.
Harris will go to El Paso, Texas, her spokesperson Symone Sanders stated in a declaration Wednesday. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas will accompany her on the journey, Sanders stated.
Harris, as her part of her diplomatic objective to deal with the source of the boost in migration, took a trip to Mexico and Guatemala previously this month to consult with leaders there.
The statement Wednesday from Harris’ workplace stopped working to please her Republican critics, such as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who stated El Paso is not “the locus of the crisis.”
“She’s going where the height of the problem isn’t,” Cruz stated on Fox News.
Her journey will come less than a week prior to previous President Donald Trump, who is teasing another run for the White House in 2024, is set up to check out the southern border. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott prepares to accompany him.
Trump in a declaration later on Wednesday took credit for pressing Harris to make the journey, declaring, “If Governor Abbott and I weren’t going there next week, she would have never gone!”
Politico initially reported the news of Harris’ border see.
Correction: A previous variation of this story misspelled Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s name.
