Kamala Harris was under total pressure few months ago for not visiting the southern border amid huge immigration crisis mostly because the White House administration did literally nothing to help border states with the immigrants.
And she decided to visit the border, but it would have been better if she didn’t at the time, since she did nothing in improving the situation with the immigrants from Mexico. Since taking the White House office, the immigration crisis instantly became one of the largest national issues, but team Biden are simply not interested in helping the border states to fight the exceptionally high number of immigrants.
What’s even more interesting thing regarding the immigrational crisis at the southern border, is the fact that there is no written record that US president Joe Biden has ever visited the southern border so far. Even Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, couldn’t defend Biden when asked about the case on Wednesday.
Psaki was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy during her daily press briefing if the president had “ever been to the southern border” during his nearly 50 years in public office.
“I will have to look back in my history books and check the times he’s been to the southern border,” Psaki said.
“We have been looking all morning,” Doocy said, “and we have not found any record of him visiting the border as president, vice president, senator, or even as a concerned citizen.”
Doocy later continued, “This is a president who makes a point when there are disasters in this country, like a wildfire or hurricane, to go and see for himself firsthand what the needs are of the local community so he can have an informed POV to make policy. Why doesn’t he go down to Del Rio, Texas, to see what’s going on?”
In a so Psaki-way of turning things around, she continued her speech referring to the most recent illegal immigration surge in Del Rio. As we already reported, thousands of illegal immigrants from Haiti have crossed the Mexican border and are now awaiting processing at the International Bridge.
According to Psaki, the immigrational crisis at the border in the past few months and the most recent one with the illegal immigrants from Haiti, is a result of a broken system and has nothing to do with Biden’s presidency so far.
“And the president certainly relies on his experience. So whether it was the work he did to address root causes as vice president, his efforts when he was in the Senate to support comprehensive immigration reform. … He uses all of his experiences to inform how he governs, how he approaches challenges,” she added.
According to multiple other reports, no one was able to find any record of Biden visiting the southern border in the past. We are still waiting for Psaki to check her records too.
