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.
