Vice President Kamala Harris has not given a press conference on the border crisis since being appointed to handle the escalating situation by President Biden on March 24.

Harris’s failure to hold a single press conference to respond to how the administration is going handle the thousands of illegal migrants attempting to enter the United States since the administration rescinded most of President Trump’s previous policies.

President of the National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd told Fox News Sunday that he thinks Harris is avoiding addressing the crisis so she doesn’t have to fix it.

“Because if she goes to the U.S. border, people are going to expect her to fix the problem, so she avoids it,” Judd said. “That’s disgusting because that’s putting politics ahead of what’s best for this country.”

Harris has also failed to schedule a visit to the southern border or the states affected by the crisis. She is, however, planning to travel to Guatemala and Mexico, the New York Post reports.

When asked about visiting the border, she threw the responsibility to a different official.

“The president has asked [Homeland Security] Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas to address what is going on at the border, and he has been working very hard at that and is showing some progress,” the vice president said, according to Fox News.

Harris says she is looking to the origins of the crisis in those countries, but still has no plans to cue the press into her work.

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.

On Friday, Louisiana Judge Robert Summerhays issued a preliminary injunction, and ordered to temporarily block the Biden Administration from revoking Title 42.

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.
