Former President Donald Trump released a statement Wednesday after Vice President Kamala Harris unveiled her upcoming border visit; saying she never would have gone had he not planned a trip for late June.
“After months of ignoring the crisis at the southern border, it is great that we got Kamala Harris to finally go and see the tremendous destruction and death that they’ve created – a direct result of Biden ending my very tough but fair Border policies,” writes the President.
“If Governor Abbott and I weren’t going there next week, she would have never gone!” he added.

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.”
100% KENNEDY: ‘America Has Become One Giant Sanctuary City’ Thanks to Joe Biden
Senator John Kennedy ripped the Biden administration’s approach to immigration on Fox News Monday; saying 2 million people will enter the USA illegally in 2021 thanks to the actions of the President.
“The Department of Homeland Security has announced that the border is closed. But, they lie like they breathe…If you believe the border is closed, you believe in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and that Jimmy Hoffa died of natural causes. We’ll have two million people come into the United States this year illegally thanks to the administration. They have no idea who they are except they’re coming from all over the world. The Biden administration has almost completely halted any kind of deportation of people already here illegally. America has become one giant sanctuary city,” said Kennedy.
