Republicans have had it with Vice President Harris’s endless stream of excuses as to why she has yet to visit the U.S.- Mexico border. When Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tried to defend her absence South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman couldn’t hold his silence anymore.
Fox News reports:
“But she’s laughing at it!” U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, fired back, according to Mediaite.com, apparently referring to March remarks in which Harris appeared to brush off criticism against her.
“It’s an insult to say that you’re looking at the border wall. … What do you have to look at? You’re not building it,” Norman continued.
“You’re comments are just words, and they’re very unfair,” Norman said. “I asked you a simple question, and I would like for you to just answer simply. Does it make sense for the leaders of the free world to go in to talk and see what’s going on at the border?”
Mayorkas – who along with Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra have visited the border region while both Harris and President Biden have stayed away — responded that Harris was “quite familiar with the situation at the border,” having served in the past as attorney general of California, Mediaite.com reported.
It’s now been over three months since President Biden appointed Harris as his point person to handle the crisis and she has yet to make any plans to visit the border. Recently, former President Trump announced he accepted an invitation from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to visit the border and see the devastation firsthand.
