Vice President Kamala Harris will tour the US-Mexico border this week after months of criticism for her refusal to visit the region as the nation’s migration crisis spirals out of control.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, 180,000 Central American migrants breach the border every single month.
“Vice President Kamala Harris is heading to the U.S.-Mexico border this week, amid an unrelenting chorus of criticism from Republicans over her failure to visit there,” reports Politico.

Thank you President Trump for getting Vice President Harris to finally go to the southern border.
She would never go without you announcing your trip first.

100% KENNEDY: Biden’s Immigration Plan Like ‘Giving Whiskey and Car Keys to a Teenager’
Senator John Kennedy perfectly summed up the Biden administration’s response to the spiraling border crisis Tuesday; saying the plan is like “giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager.”
“I think that the reason the vice president went to Guatemala and met with President [Alejandro] Giammattei is to offer him billions and billions of American taxpayer dollars to try to make his country better, and with no disrespect but that’s like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.”

“President Giammattei is an authoritarian. He presides over a corrupted administration. They’re probably going to steal the money. Corruption is rampant,” Kennedy continued. “Now, you don’t have to be Einstein’s cousin to figure all of this out.”

From Fox News:
A rancher from New Mexico told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday that migrants have been getting “fairly close” to her house, even asking for food and water, amid the surge in illegal crossings at the U.S. southern border.
Amanda Adame noted that she gives them food and water because they “don’t want to get hurt.” She added that she typically calls Border Patrol when she sees migrants on her property.
Adame also pointed out a difference between the behavior of the migrants under the Biden administration and the Trump administration.
“When they [migrants] saw a border agent before, they stopped and they waited and now they keep trying to go,” Adame said, noting that Border Patrol agents “catch them when they see them,” but said the “big problem” is the migrants aren’t always found.
Biden has scrapped a number of Trump’s policies, which included having asylum seekers remain in Mexico instead of staying in the U.S. while they wait for their cases to be heard.
More than 15,000 unaccompanied migrant minors are in custody at federal facilities, according to recent reports. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported encounters with more than 100,000 migrants (minors and otherwise) in February alone.
When asked what her biggest concern is Adame said, “Now that the border policy has changed, what’s going to happen now?”
“What is he [President Biden] going to do with stopping asylum seekers?” she went on to ask. “I just feel sad for the people who are trying to come in legally and they can’t because of all these asylum seekers.”
