Kamala Harris continues to deploy her signature giggle when confronted with tough questions related to the border crisis that she’s been tasked with cleaning up. Despite the ongoing humanitarian crisis her administration created, VP Harris routinely laughs it off in the face of reporters and the American people. She is sending a clear message that the Biden administration isn’t concerned with the fixing the crisis if it means getting in the way of their open-border agenda.
After returning from her first foreign trip to Latin America, Kamala Harris sat down the an NBC reporter who walked on egg shells and treated her with kid gloves.
However, Lester Holt did press her momentarily, asking the VP why during her trip she refused to visit the US-Mexico border.
Kamala’s response was dripping with her typical laughter and smugness as she replied:
“And I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making…”

Early on in the interview, Kamala totally dodged Holt’s direct question when he asked why she’s yet to visit the border, however she later gave a terse response, repeating the same liberal talking points every member open-border Democrat uses today.
“We have to fix what’s happening at the border. There’s no debate about that. But we have to identify the reason why people are arriving. We have to understand the problem so we can fix it.”

Here, Kamala alludes to the invisible monster of “climate change” as a main driver behind northern migration from Latin America. Her communications team has repeatedly used this as an excuse for the sudden surge of illegal immigration, despite it happening simultaneously with Biden’s decision to reverse Trump’s policies.
When pressed on her lack of face time at the border, Kamala attempts to assert herself by repeating, over an over again, “We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
The Vice President is not doing herself any favors. Many are already questioning her erratic behavior after she handed out cookies in her likeness to a group of reporters before departing for Guatemala in Air Force 2.
Customs and Border Protection data shows the number of illegal border crossings this fiscal year have already toppled numbers not since 2006 — and there are still four months to go. Still, this remains a laughing matter for Vice President Kamala Harris.
Joe Biden tasked Kamala with tackling the border crisis, putting her in charge of handing the surge of illegal immigration from Central America.
Border Democrats have even joined forces with Republican critics of the Harris. Democrat Rep. Henry Cueller of Texas has repeatedly called out the Vice President for refusing to visit the crisis that she’s supposed to be managing.
While in Guatemala, Harris swayed from her typical niceties in a direct message to potential US border crossers. She warned” “Do not come; do not come!” during a press conference after her bilateral meeting with the Guatemalan President.
“I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come. Do not come.”

Like a parrot, Kamala regurgitated the same line to reporters, on her Twitter account, and to the American people. She’s working on the “root causes” of irregular migration to the US-Mexico border. That phrase, “root causes” seems to emerge from the VP’s lips over-and-over again, a tactic proven to be effective for her.
ROOT CAUSES. ROOT CAUSES. ROOT CAUSES.
“I’m in Guatemala because my focus is dealing with the root causes of migration.”
– Vice President Kamala Harris to Lester Holt
She’s right. But Republicans always tend to focus on quick criminal fixes instead of sustainable preventative solutions.pic.twitter.com/AtTRoYo6RI

Harris’ trip, which will include a visit to Mexico, is intended to identify “the reason people are arriving at our border” and strengthen diplomatic ties with Latin America.
She was scheduled to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico City on Tuesday.
