Kamala Harris Looks Like a Total Failure

Kamala Harris has only traveled to the border once since 2021. Last year she boasted that the Biden administration had generated $3.2 billion in economic investments across Central America.

Republican Wants Kamala Harris Dismissed From Border Czar Role: Former White House physician Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, introduced a non-binding congressional resolution calling on President Joe Biden to remove Vice President Kamala Harris from her role as the Biden administration’s border czar.

Kamala Harris has a Problem

“The resolution demands that a competent leader be appointed who will prioritize the safety of Americans, acknowledge that border security is national security, ensure Customs and Border Protection (CBP) receives the resources needed to execute their job effectively, and stop the flood of fentanyl pouring across our border,” a statement posted on Jackson’s congressional website said.    

Republican Reps. Dan Meuser of Pennsylvania, Mike Garcia of California, and Brian Babin and Randy Weber of Texas have signed onto Jackson’s resolution. 

“None of these people in Washington have a clue about what’s going on at the border,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said last Fall. “The Border Czar has said in Texas that the border is secure. The Secretary of Homeland Security said the border is secure. The president’s spokesperson said, ‘people don’t just walk across the border.’”

Abbott has since appointed his own border czar who he claims has done more in a few months than Harris has in a few years. 

Records show that 2.76 million people illegally entered the U.S. across the Mexican border in the 2022 fiscal year. That’s almost equal to the entire population of Kansas and Mississippi and more bigger than the population of Idaho. That was up from 1.72 million in the 2021 fiscal year.

A woman interviewed by Fox News in January gave Harris’ performance an abysmal score.

“Typically, the grading system goes A through F,” Beverly, of North Dakota, told Fox News. “I give her a Z.”

Why the Problems? 

Harris has only traveled to the border once since 2021.

Last year she boasted that the Biden administration had generated $3.2 billion in economic investments across Central America. 

Criticism of Harris’ handling of her role as the administration’s point person on migration has been bipartisan. Democratic New York Mayor Eric Adams took issue with her competency earlier this month.

“There needs to be an individual who is dedicated to do the decompression strategy for the federal government. Someone should be at these entry points: El Paso, Brownsville, Texas, and others, too, to organize a real decompression strategy across the entire country,” Adams said. “One person should, we should be looking at — it is often stated that as the role of the VP has too much in her portfolio to be focused on just doing that decompression strategy. If not, the decompression strategy can’t be New York City.”

Harris’ office told the New York Post the mayor is frustrated to not have a point person who he can deal with migration issues with. 

“It’s been frustrating to not have a point person on topic that’s senior enough to make adjustments in response to the crisis on the ground. The main contact has been [the Department of] Homeland Security,” the source in Adams’ office told the New York Post.

Don’t Blame Kamala? 

Not everyone faults Kamala Harris, noting that she’s only responsible for enforcing Joe Biden’s intentional policies.

“It’s Joe Biden’s open borders policy that he’s complaining about.”

“The fish rots from the head down and this administration has proven they’ll never get serious about securing our border whether it’s hapless ‘border czar’ Kamala or anyone else,” Rep. Nick Langworthy, R-N.Y., told the Post.
