Maybe I’m taking this so personally because I live in Texas, not far from the border. Or maybe I’m just a realist. I can see where this thing is headed and it terrifies me.
I’ve already had more concerns than I can count about the crisis at the border, but hearing the news that Kamala Harris has been placed at the helm?
There’s nothing like putting a far left-leaning politician in charge of my tax dollars and security to make me sweat.
I’m not saying Biden was in any shape to handle it. We’re seeing more and more signs that he’s not in this for the long haul.
A few days back we saw a significant shift in the Biden White House. Er, the Biden-Harris White House. That’s the latest change—we are to refer to the new administration with both names.
Anyone want to guess why?
Now Biden has placed Kamala in charge of the border. Here’s the report from Axios:
- Harris will lead efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador) to manage the flow of unaccompanied children and migrant families arriving at the border in numbers not seen since a surge in 2019.
- “Starting today, the Northern Triangle nations and Mexico will know there was one senior official dedicated to this effort. To be very clear, this is an important task,” a senior administration official told reporters during a conference call.
- It was held just an hour before a White House event with Biden, Harris, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. (Axios)
In a meeting about the crisis (which he still refuses to call a crisis) Biden seemed to get confused.
As he spoke to his Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, he uttered these words:
“Um now we’re going to get down to business here and, uh, Ron, who am I turning this over to?”
Ron immediately dismissed the reporters in the room. I don’t blame him, frankly.
Maybe Biden’s comments leading up to the moment of confusion caused him to lose track? He did, after all, come up with a whopper of a tale blaming the immigration woes on President Trump:
“This new surge we’re dealing with now started in the last administration but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely.”
Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying, folks.
Only, I’m not laughing. I’m just crying.
