President Joe Biden has tapped “the most qualified person” for the job – Vice President Kamala Harris – to lead talks with Mexico and other countries on the migrant surge issue, while himself previously telling journalists that he plans to visit the southern US border “at some point”.
As President Joe Biden has deputized Kamala Harris to lead the efforts to resolve the migrant surge “challenge” on the southern US border with Mexico, the Vice President has remained curiously silent on the matter, reported Fox News.
In fact, the only tangible response on the extremely volatile developments so far from Harris has been to laugh out loud when asked whether she planned to visit the southern border.
As photos of people sleeping on the ground in crammed ‘pods’ at border facilities emerged online, Harris spoke to reporters at a Florida airport before going on the “Help is Here” tour of the nation on Monday.
Questioned regarding her timeline for visiting the overwhelmed migrant processing facilities, Harris quipped, “Not today!” before laughing loudly. “But I have before, and I’m sure I will again”, she added.
