(AmericanProsperity.com) – After facing weeks of backlash from both sides of the aisle for her lack of presence at our southern border as record-breaking numbers of migrants cross into our nation, Vice President Kamala Harris is finally heading down to … Mexico.
Harris Set to Find the “Root Causes” of the Migration on Her Travels
On Wednesday, April 14, Harris announced she will visit both Guatemala and Mexico on her search to find the “root causes” of the current immigration surge. As of now, she will not visit our southern border. Instead, she said Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas will be addressing that specific part of this crisis in our nation.
There are certainly issues in the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras that motivate people to leave. However, Harris continues to ignore any root causes within Biden’s current border policy that are creating the issues at our border. Such problems include the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors waiting in Texas holding shelters for government processing.
GOP Puts Harris on the Milk Carton
Republicans didn’t miss a beat with Harris’ latest news. During a press conference on Wednesday, they showed a milk carton with the vice president’s photo on it alongside the slogan “Missing at the Border.”
Similarly, on Tuesday, April 13, former acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wold told listeners at the Heritage Foundation that the issues cannot be addressed without first understanding the “situation and atmosphere” on our border. That’s how Kamala Harris must see the situation along our border in order to address it properly, not by ignoring it.
Democrats Plan for a Long-Term Strategy
During her address on Wednesday, Harris added that whatever fix is decided on between the US and the countries the illegal immigrants are coming from will have to be “continuous” and one that we “institutionalize.” She also told listeners results won’t be seen overnight.
While Democrats have lofty goals for this diplomatic mission, there are much simpler ways to change the ebb and flow of illegal immigrants that don’t involve spending billions of dollars overseas in programs that may never work. It’s time for Biden and Harris to come to terms with the crisis they created and return to Trump-era policies that provide our nation with security and keep thousands of kids home with their families.
