It has been two entire years since President Joe Biden named his Vice President Kamala Harris as ‘border czar.’ Her responsibilities included heading up solutions for our border crisis. However, House Republicans say her dismal performance should get her fired from the role; a role she seems to care very little about.

“Kamala Harris has done nothing to ‘address the root cause of migration’ or stop the influx of illegal immigrants coming across our border daily. She continues to sit by as the number of illegal immigrants coming across our border skyrockets, fentanyl deaths explode, and CBP officers are left to fend for themselves. She has completely betrayed the American people by blatantly disregarding her duties as Border Czar,” Republican Texas Representative Ronny Jackson told the Daily Caller before introducing his resolution.

On Friday, Jackson reintroduced a resolution which unequivocally calls for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as border czar. “Enough is enough! President Biden must remove Kamala Harris and replace her with someone who will put Americans first and stop the crisis at our southern border. Politics should never compromise our national security. We need change now!,” Jackson added.

The resolution begins:

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Vice President Kamala Harris should be removed from her position as the head of the Biden administration’s strategy to address the root causes of migration.

The resolution concludes:

Whereas our southern border is less safe now than it ever has  been; and  Whereas U.S. Customs and Border Protection is overwhelmed and lacks resources needed due to Vice President Har-ris’s refusal to address the issues: Now, therefore, be it
 Resolved, That the House of Representatives urges
the Biden administration to—
(1) remove Vice President Kamala Harris as
the head of any executive branch task force or strat-
egy relating to immigration;
(2) appoint an experienced and competent lead-

er to replace Vice President Kamala Harris as the
head of the Biden administration’s strategy to ad-
dress the root causes of migration;
(3) recognize that border security is national se-
curity;
(4) immediately provide U.S. Customs and Bor-
der Protection with the adequate support and re-
sources to do their job effectively and adequately;
(5) immediately reinistate the Migrant Protec-
tion Protocols;
(6) take action to protect American commu-
nities from fentanyl; and
(7) stop allowing politics in Washington to
cloud their judgment regarding policies implemented
at the southern border.

 

In February, Jackson also introduced a bill requiring executive branch officials tasked with immigration policy to visit the southern border and issue reports about conditions.

    She hasn’t done anything nor does she care about the border. I don’t know how she or Biden got elected. This is the worst administration in history.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility discovered $18 million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine hidden within a shipment of squash.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) revealed in a press release on Monday, at approximately 6:47 a.m.,that CBP officers encountered a 44-year-old male driving a commercial tractor-trailer with a shipment manifested for squash. The driver, a valid border crossing card holder, was referred for further examination by CBP officers along with the tractor-trailer and shipment.

Non-intrusive scanning technology was utilized to conduct a full scan of the tractor trailer which showed irregularities and CBP officers requested a CBP human and narcotics detection canine. The canine team responded and alerted officers to the presence of narcotics.

A total of 1,419 packages concealed within the shipment of squash was discovered and extracted. The narcotics were tested and identified as methamphetamine with a total weight of 11,469 pounds with an estimated street value of $18,350,400.

“Our officers’ commitment to duty, excellence, and the safety of our nation is truly commendable. These results serve as an outstanding display of effectiveness in thwarting the illegal importation of narcotics,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Otay Mesa Area Port Director. “Their exceptional efforts truly embody the highest standards of service.”

The seizures are part of Operation Apollo, a holistic counter-fentanyl effort that began on October 26, 2023 in southern California, and expanded to Arizona on April 10, 2024, the CBP release reveals. Operation Apollo focuses on intelligence collection and partnerships, and utilizes local CBP field assets augmented by federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to boost resources, increase collaboration, and target the smuggling of fentanyl into the United States.

The CDC states that more than 150 people die every day from drug overdoses related to synthetic opioids derived from fentanyl.
