Kamala Harris has utterly failed to address the catastrophe at the southern border.
Under direction from Joe Biden, Harris was entrusted with getting the border under control.
“Now, we’ve had consistent months where some 200,000 illegal aliens that we know about have been detained by Border Patrol,” Townhall reports.
“It’s unsustainable,” the report adds. “It’s an open border policy without the Biden crew explicitly saying so.”
Even the liberal “news” network MSNBC can no longer defend Harris.
MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle criticized Harris for being “missing in action during the ongoing crisis on the southern border,” Fox News reports.
“How about the message from our Vice President?” Ruhle asked.
“Where is she? She was supposed to be in charge of all of these migration issues, going to those Northern Triangle countries that’s obviously not Haiti.”
During Harris’ trip to Guatemala for alleged “diplomatic outreach,” she told migrants rather directly, “do not come.”
“People aren’t listening,” Ruhle added.
NBC News correspondent Julia Ainsley responded, “Well, we haven’t heard a lot from the vice president.”
Instead, what’s the Biden administration doing? They’re actually attacking the job performance of border patrol.
After videos surfaced of agents using horses to maintain law and order, the Biden administration attacked them.
“They were not whipping these illegals,” Townhall explains. “That’s fake news, but the images of all these illegals being huddled under highway overpasses just demonstrated the extent of the Biden White House’s failure at the border.”

More from Townhall:
The adults are back, huh? What a trainwreck. Besides not caring, this is an administration that thinks if they give a speech, they can check it off the to-do list. That’s not how any of this works. Even an eighth grader would know that. This, coupled with the lack of attention and care, makes way for a toxic cocktail in the public policy forum.
The “people aren’t listening,” says Ruhle. Well, yeah—they don’t think this is a crisis. You can’t even call these people illegal aliens because of political correctness, which is another appalling aspect of this administration’s ethos when it comes to governing. By simply not calling it ‘a crisis’, there is no crisis. If you just change the language, the problem just vanishes. This is a governing mindset that’s not real. It’s not grounded in reality. It’s insane, really. It’s explains a whole lot about how Joe Biden and Harris deal with various crises.
