MISSING in ACTION: Arizona AG Says Harris Won’t Respond to His Border Tour Invitation

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.11.21

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich confirmed this week that Vice President Kamala Harris has failed to respond to his official invitation to tour the humanitarian crisis taking place along the US-Mexico border.

“I guess if you were a philosopher you would say no response is a very loud response because we’ve not received any response,” Brnovich told Fox Business’ Dagen McDowell.

Vice President Kamala Harris was appointed by Joe Biden to oversee the administration’s handling of the border crisis more than 16 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.

“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.”

CALLING HER OUT: Graham Torches Ocasio-Cortez, Asks ‘Where’s AOC? Why Aren’t You at the Border?’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.25.21

Senator Lindsey Graham called-out Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday for “worrying about children under Trump” but remaining totally silent about the spiraling crisis taking place at the southern border under Joe Biden.

“Where is AOC? Why aren’t you at the border looking at the things being reported. If you were worried about children under Trump being in bad conditions, this is worse,” said Graham.

 

Senator Lindsey Graham weighed-in Wednesday on the upcoming 2022 midterm elections; saying Donald Trump is the most “consequential Republican in the country” and “we’re going to need his help” to re-take Congress.

“How are you going to run some of these races?” asked one reporter.

“President Trump is the most consequential Republican in the country. He’s the leader of the party. For us to be successful in 2022, we’re going to need his help,” said Graham.

“The fact that the Democrats blame Trump says a lot about their playbook. No matter what the problem, Trump caused it. They caused this. They changed policies that were working,” he added. “That’s why you have more asylum seekers. The fact that President Biden has not visited the border is pretty astonishing to me.”

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador blamed US President Joe Biden for the massive influx of migrants from Central America moving across the United States’ southern border Wednesday; saying he signaled they would be “treated better” than the Trump administration.

“Expectations were created that with the government of President Biden there would be a better treatment of migrants. And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so,” Obrador told reporters.

“People don’t go to the United States for fun, they go out of necessity,” he added.

“They see [Biden] as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States,” said the Mexican President. “We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.”

 

Furious Republican lawmakers sent a scathing letter to the Department of Homeland Security this week after the agency reportedly released illegal migrants into the United States without court dates.

“Despite your repeated claims that ‘the border is secure,’ these reports raise serious questions about DHS’ commitment to faithfully enforcing the law,” said the statement signed by 14 legislators.

“Multiple Border Patrol agents confirmed the new process to Fox News, revealing that they have been directed to use prosecutorial discretion to forgo the hours-long process of paperwork required to issue an NTA amid the surge of migrants at the border,” reports Fox News.

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Tuesday released photos of crowded facilities, including children sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder on mats on the floor with aluminum blankets and on benches,” adds Fox.

President Biden urged migrants from Central America and Mexico not to travel to the United States this week; shifting tones from his 2019 campaign when urged them to “come” to the country if they’re being “oppressed.”

“They deserve to be heard. That’s who we are,” Biden said at the time. “We’re a nation that says, ‘You want to flee, and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.'”

Apparently, the President has changed his views.

“I can say quite clearly don’t come over,” Biden told ABC’s George Stephanopolous in an interview last week. “So don’t leave your town or city or community. We’re gonna make sure we have facilities in those cities and towns run by department of — by DHS and also access with HHS, the Health and Human Services, to say you can apply for asylum from where you are right now.”

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.

“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.”
