VP Harris goes 18 days without a press conference on the border crisis after assuming role

As 1,000 illegal immigrants stream across the border undetected every day and a record number of unaccompanied minors arrived in March, the woman supposed to be leading a response to the crisis is MIA.

Today marks the 18th day that VP Harris has dodged giving a press conference on the crisis at the border and what she’s doing about it since assigned to the role by President Biden on March 24, as reported by Fox News.

Former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tweeted his disappointed that Harris has failed to appropriately deal with the border crisis saying “now we learn she isn’t planning a border trip for at least two months.”

“Two months,” he tweeted. “They don’t take this crisis seriously. They tell you with their actions every single day.”

Harris made trips to Illinois, California, and Connecticut since assuming her role as border czar for the administration. However, no plans have been announced by the White House as to when she’ll arrive at the border.

The Washington Examiner reported that Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that a potential border trip may come “soon.”

“I’m sure it will be soon,” Psaki said.

Whether Harris will step up to her role and begin to take the border crisis seriously has yet to be seen.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote




The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
