WASHINGTON – Biden had appointed Harris to oversee the country’s out-of-control immigration situation in March 2021 — with the vice president not visiting the US-Mexico border till three months later. Even then, she toured an area far from the crisis epicenter. Then just days ago, Harris declared during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the US southern border is “secure.”
Abbott has been sending busloads of migrants from Texas to Democrat-controlled cities like New York, Chicago and Washington, DC, throughout the summer. Fox News According to the latest Customs and Border Protection data, migrant arrest numbers have almost doubled under the Biden administration and already exceed last year’s record. NBC host Chuck Todd challenged Harris’ statement, noting that the number of border crossings was nearing 2 million for the first time ever and asked her if she was “confident” the border is secure. Harris offered a muddled response, saying: “We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration. But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.” Abbott, a Republican, has been sending busloads of migrants from Texas to Democrat-controlled cities like New York, Chicago and Washington, DC, throughout the summer to teach the cities a lesson about the real implications of the border crisis, which has overwhelmed the Lone Star State. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, declared a public emergency last week over the influx of migrants coming from Texas and Arizona — who require accommodations, medical care and other critical services. Bowser’s repeated requests to have the National Guard deployed to help with the migrant crisis have been turned down by the Department of Defense.
