    Surge Summary: Vice President Kamala Harris is supposed to be on top of addressing the border crisis … so it’s odd that, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Harris isn’t “focused” on the border. This prompts the question: how much of a crisis can she and the Administration actually consider the situation down there?

    Harris Hypocrisy

    During a recent CNN interview, Border Czar Kamala Harris was asked if she was planning to go Central America to discuss the illegal immigration crisis that is overwhelming our southern border.

    Harris answered, “We have to deal with COVID issues, but I can’t get there soon enough.”  Considering that she is fully vaccinated, it’s not at all clear what “COVID issues” Harris was referring to.

    Many of the illegal immigrants crossing our southern border are testing positive for COVID.  In fact, the state of Texas is suing the Biden Administration for turning the border into a massive COVID superspreader event.

    When pressed to explain Harris’s response, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki came up empty, saying:

    “Well, I would certainly have to ask her team about that specifically.  But I would tell you also that her focus is not on the border; it’s on addressing the root causes in [Central America].”

    So, Border Czar Harris’s focus is not the border.  That’s liberal logic for you.

    While addressing root causes is important, the most important, most immediate crisis is the border, which is also creating a lot of COVID issues.

    Here’s some unsolicited advice for the Biden/Harris Administration:  Help America first by securing the border first!  Then deal with Central America.

    Unfortunately, Biden and Harris don’t see open borders as a crisis.  Instead, they see it as a pathway to more power.
