Vice President Kamala Harris has once again displayed her total delusions when it comes to our immigration crisis. Rarely does she speak about the matter, despite being tasked last year with leading the administration’s diplomatic outreach as a means to attend and combat the migrant crisis.
When she does speak, however, she compounds the problem. In an interview with Telemundo about the administration’s strategy, she warned the effects would not be seen “overnight.” But the effects are being seen overnight, and with each night, the crisis worsens.
In a nonsensical discussion, Harris said, “I believe very strongly most people don’t want to leave home. They don’t want to leave the place where they grew up, the church where they worship They don’t want to leave their grandmother. And when people leave home, it’s usually for one of two reasons: either they are fleeing harm, or they cannot simply stay and take care of the basic needs of themselves and their families. So I am approaching our root causes work with that spirit.”
“Root causes” and “spirit.” What empty words. With regard to her “root causes” she defended her strategy by pointing to 77 CEOs who have pledged $1.2 billion to invest in agriculture and women entrepreneurs in the region.
She said she is “very clear” with leaders in the region “that one of our highest priorities is to combat corruption.” She said “if there is going to be American investment, this is a factor of either something that discourages investment or will encourage investment, meaning combating corruption.”
To make sure she cannot be held accountable for the fact that there is absolute inaction and zero progress, she conveniently adds, “but none of this is going to be just turning on a switch. It requires focus, it requires intention, it requires an investment over a period of time, which means, in the short point, is that you’re not going to see the benefit of it overnight – because the problems didn’t occur overnight.”
She says “it” so many times but fails to explain what the heck “it” is. Whatever, “it” is, she explains has seen success in that they have expanded “the ability of people in the region to have access to high-speed internet….so we are seeing progress.”

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas
On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.
At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.
The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”
In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.
“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”
He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.
The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.
“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
