Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is demanding that president Biden strip his Vice President of her title as “border czar. It’s been weeks since President Biden announced Kamala Harris would take point on the response to the border crisis yet she hasn’t even bothered to make a trip to see the border firsthand. Brnovich wrote a letter to the President urging him to appoint another administration official to lead the effort after weeks of Harris’s “absolutely abysmal” response.
The Daily Wire reports:
“The crisis at our southern border has been escalating since January and is now clearly a catastrophe and tragedy in the making. Like many Americans, I was encouraged by your March 24 appointment of Vice President Kamala Harris to lead the efforts to stem the tidal wave of illegal migration into our country,” Brnovich began “However, to date, her response to the border crisis has been absolutely abysmal, so I am requesting that she be replaced as your ‘border czar.’”
“We are not nearly 50 days into her appointment, and Vice President Harris has shown little interest in observing what is happening along the border and has failed to articulate any plan to deal with the devastating effects of this crisis,” he continued. “Instead, she has traveled to other states for unrelated and less-pressing matters. Mr. President, this is a slap in the face to Arizonans who helped elect you to the highest office in the land.”
“The truth is that out border officials are overwhelmed, our law enforcement is understaffed, and local ranchers live in daily fear of threats from Cartel operatives. It is shameful that they are not receiving more federal support,” Brnovich said. “The latest apprehension numbers from April show that things are getting worse, and we do not yet know the full extent of dangerous people and drugs crossing into our communities.”
“Mr. President, we cannot afford another day, week, or month of apathy and inaction by any official in your administration charged with upholding our federal immigration laws and ensuring public safety. What is occurring now at the border and in our communities is reckless and dangerous – to Arizonans, to migrants, and to the security of our great nation,” he continued.
Officials have already said America is set to see the highest rates of migrant crossings in over 20 years yet the Biden administration has completely disregarded the crisis. The administration has attempted to downplay the migrant surge and place blame on the Trump administration.
