BORDER CZAR DAY 23: VP Harris Welcomes Japanese Prime Minister to the White House

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.17.21

Vice President Kamala Harris was appointed Joe Biden’s ‘Border Czar’ more than 23 days ago but spent Friday welcoming the Japanese Prime Minister to the White House; a custom traditionally performed by the President of the United States.

“It is now my great pleasure to welcome the Prime Minister of Japan and to thank him for this visit which is the first visit to the United States of a world leader since we came into office,” said Harris.

“I have been asked to lead the issue of dealing with root causes in the Northern Triangle, similar to what the then-Vice President did many years ago,” she said. “But I will tell you these are issues that aren’t going to be addressed overnight.”

“We have plans in the works to go to Guatemala as soon as possible,” added the Vice President.

Harris was appointed by Joe Biden to oversee the administration’s handling of the border crisis more than three weeks ago but has so-far failed to deliver any major address on the issue.

“Her assigned efforts on immigration, which includes overseeing diplomatic efforts with Northern Triangle countries, fit into a broader trend of the administration delegating substantial foreign policy responsibilities to her. For example, she has held calls with major world leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu,” reports Fox News.

“Since the beginning of the administration and a week after Biden’s announcement, Harris has fielded questions from the media but has yet to hold a formal press conference. Meanwhile, the border crisis captivated the nation’s attention and raised a series of concerns about national security and the stability of the U.S. immigration system as a whole,” adds Fox.

“So this new surge we’re dealing with now started with the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely and to – and to stop what’s happening,” Biden said last Wednesday.

“And so, this increase has been consequential, but the vice president has agreed – among the multiple other things that I have her leading – and I appreciate it – agreed to lead our diplomatic effort and work with those nations to accept re- – the returnees, and enhance migration enforcement at their borders – at their borders.”

‘KIDS IN CONTAINERS?’ Press Sec Says Only a ‘Couple of Options’ for Unaccompanied Minors at the Border

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.25.21

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended the Biden administration’s decision to re-open facilities for children crossing the US border without their parents Wednesday; saying the policies are vastly different than the Trump administration’s programs.

“You said it’s not ‘Kids in Cages.’ We’ve seen some photos now of containers. Is it ‘Kids in Containers’ instead of ‘Kids in Cages’?” asked reporter Peter Doocy.

“We have a number of unaccompanied children who are coming into the country without their families. What we’re not doing is ripping them from the arms of their parents at the border. We’re not doing that,” said Psaki.

“We can send them back, we can transfer them, or we can put them with families and sponsors without any vetting. We’ve chosen the middle option,” she added.

CHAOS: 171,000+ Migrants Breached US Border in March, Highest Number in the Past 15 YEARS

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.04.21

A staggering number of migrants breached the US-Mexico border last month; raising new questions over the Biden administration’s ability to enforce law enforcement in states like Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico.

“More than 171,000 migrants were taken into custody at the border in March, according to reports citing preliminary data from Customs and Border Protection. In February, CBP encountered just over 100,000 migrants at the United States-Mexico border, 9,457 of whom were unaccompanied minors, according to the agency. In March, 18,800 unaccompanied minors were taken in, the Washington Post reported, which obtained preliminary CBP data,” reports the Washington Examiner.

“Among migrants who came across the border as part of a family unit in February, there were 19,246 encounters, an increase from 7,294 in January. In March, 53,000 were reportedly encountered by CBP,” adds the website.

 

Vice President Kamala Harris was appointed by Joe Biden to oversee the administration’s handling of the border crisis more than nine days ago but has so-far failed to deliver any major address on the issue.

“Her assigned efforts on immigration, which includes overseeing diplomatic efforts with Northern Triangle countries, fit into a broader trend of the administration delegating substantial foreign policy responsibilities to her. For example, she has held calls with major world leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu,” reports Fox News.
