Harris Has ‘No Immediate Plans’ To Address Border Crisis, Will Focus On ‘Diplomacy’ Instead

Joe Biden assigned Kamala Harris the task of overseeing what has become a child migrant crisis on the United States-Mexico border. However, Harris says she has no plans to visit the border or its overflowing detention facilities. She claims she will use “diplomacy” to handle the surge of unaccompanied minors.

The Biden team noted last week that it negotiating with Mexico for assistance in handling a surge of unaccompanied minor immigrants and families seeking asylum at the southern border.

Harris said late last week that she will pursue that “diplomacy” without making changes to current immigration law. Like her boss, Joe Biden, Harris doesn’t have plans to witness the border crisis firsthand.

Harris, however, did campaign on dismantling facilities that house illegal immigrants.

“Vice President Kamala Harris won’t be on the ground at the Southwest border anytime soon as she leads efforts to address a rise in migrants trying to enter the country,” the Associated Press reported. “Harris has no plans to visit the U.S.-Mexico border region ‘in the near future,’ spokeswoman Symone Sanders said Friday.”

“The vice president is not doing the border,” Sanders said.

Harris will reportedly receive briefings from Mexican and Central American officials though. As of last Friday, there have been no confirmed reports of this happening.

“You can expect she will be speaking with leaders from the region in the near future,” Sanders said.

The New York Post reported that Harris has no scheduled events that focus on the topic of immigration.

“Harris, who was tapped by President Biden to handle the migrant crisis last Wednesday, made no media appearances on any of the highly watched weekend news talk shows — even as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle made the rounds following their respective visits to the border,” the outlet added.

The Washington Post reported that an estimated 5,000 individuals try to breach the US-Mexico border each day. 450-500 of those are unaccompanied minors, and there are currently about 15,500 children are in Border Patrol custody.

According to estimates being circulated among the Biden team, border patrol agents could be apprehending between 500,000 and 800,000 illegals per month.
