Kamala Harris Tapped To Clean Up Migrant Child Crisis at The Southern Border


Vice President Kamala Harris, whom President Biden tapped to lead the administration’s response to the border crisis, once indicated she was in favor of decriminalizing illegal border crossings and sparked backlash in 2018 when she compared ICE to the KKK.

Biden on Thursday appointed Harris to lead his administration’s efforts to address a record surge in migrants, including unaccompanied minors, that has strained capacity at immigration facilities at the southern border in recent weeks. “When she speaks, she speaks for me,” Biden said Thursday.

Harris will serve as the administration’s diplomatic liaison in talks with Mexico and the “Northern Triangle” nations of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on how best to address the root causes of the migrant surge.
