GOP Forces Harris Do Her Job Using Budget Cuts
The Biden Administration's plan for our border crisis seems to be to sit back and let it happen. Press Secretay Psaki even went far as to say that the crisis is just something made up by conservative media, despite border patrol agents claiming the detention centers are overrun and they don't have the manpower to stop people from crossing our border illegally. The numbers all show that this is very much a crisis. So Biden put Harris in charge of fixing the border and she seems to be putting it off. It has been almost two months now and she yet to even visit the border. The GOP has taken note and they are trying to cut her travel budget until she at the very least visits the border.
"Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, on Thursday will introduce a bill that would bar taxpayer money from being used for the travel expenses of Vice President Kamala Harris until she visits the southern border and issues a report on how to solve the crisis there.
"We have an absolute crisis at the border, and Vice President Harris was appointed to lead the administration’s efforts on the border crisis, but it's been 56 days, and in that time she hasn't been to the border once," Hinson told Fox News in an interview Wednesday. "She hasn't held a news conference on the administration’s efforts for a plan, and I think it's time she does that."
The See The Crisis Act would prohibit federal funds from being used to pay travel expenses for the vice president, including Air Force Two and security details for any travel outside the U.S., until she has visited the border to review the crisis and submitted a report to Congress.
That report would include all of the vice president’s meetings with agencies at the border, plans to deal with the crisis and the amount of foreign aid to be given to Northern Triangle countries to respond to the crisis.
The Dems have the majority in both Houses so this bill is just to make a point. I doubt the House or Senate Dems would actually vote for it. But still, Harris should be doing something to stop this crisis, either that or Dems should just admit they have no intention of doing anything already. It's getting to be pretty obvious.
