Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is calling on President Biden to remove Vice President Harris as the border czar in a letter he sent Wednesday. His announcement comes one day after U.S. Customs and Border Protection published the data on immigration for this April.
Brnovich demands that someone else take Harris’ place because of her “little interest in observing what is happening on the border.” Since being put in this position, Harris has yet to hold any press conferences on the matter. Even Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas made a visit to the border, held a press conference, and spoken in hearings within these first 100 some odd days of the Biden administration. Harris, on the other hand, “has failed to articulate any plan” Brnovich writes.
Harris received an invite to visit the Arizona Mexico border, from Brnovich himself on April 2nd. But, he says he never even received a response to the invitation. Instead, Harris plans on visiting Mexico in June.
The attorney general drew attention to how law enforcement is understaffed and overwhelmed. “It is shameful that they are not receiving more federal support,” Brnovich wrote. “Mr. President, we cannot afford another day, week, or month of apathy and inaction by any official in your administration charged with upholding our federal immigration laws an ensuring public safety.”
Brnovich suggested that Biden replace Harris with another federal official who will see the border crisis “firsthand” and is willing to work with state partners.

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42
Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.
In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.
Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.
Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”
In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.
One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.
“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
