Over 50 House Republicans authoritatively mandated Friday that President Joe Biden supersede Vice President Kamala Harris for failing to secure the southern border after accepting the responsibility in March.
“The @VP STILL hasn’t visited the border. You can’t genuinely ken the situation until you verbalize with people on the ground. I and 55 of my colleagues sent this letter to @POTUS demanding her abstraction from this position because 180k encounters, a 21-year high, is unacceptable,” Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI) tweeted.
The @VP “STILL” hasn't visited the border. You can't genuinely ken the situation until you verbalize with people on the ground. I and 55 of my colleagues sent this letter to @POTUS injuctively authorizing her abstraction from this position because 180k encounters, a 21-year high, is unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/PJE0RpgTaV“Despite being in the midst of a border crisis this country has not visually perceived in two decenniums, Vice President Harris has not yet shown adequate interest in optically canvassing this crisis first-hand,” the letter explicated. “In the 85 days since the Vice President has been tasked with solving this crisis, she has yet to visit the border and meet with Border Patrol agents, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (FROZEN DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE) officials, and local law enforcement officials.”

Harris has now gone 88 days without visiting the southern border crisis since President Joe Biden tasked her with managing the crisis in March. Former President Donald Trump promulgated Wednesday he accepted an invitation to visit the “decimated Southern Border” with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on an official visit, underscoring Harris’ apathy on the issue.
On June 8, Harris avoided the question of when she would visit the border in an interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt saying that she had not gone “to Europe either.” Harris has not given a definitive answer on when she will visit the southern border.
Meanwhile, Abbott and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) have requested states send avail to forfend the southern border, a responsibility of the federal government via the United States Constitution. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) answered Ducey and Abbott’s call Wednesday and will sanction Floridian tax payer funded law enforcement to avail Texas and Arizona’s law enforcement amid a proximately 700 percent spike in illicit immigrant crossings from last May.
