Vice President Kamala Harris is set to appear on the talk show “The View” on Friday, but has no plans to visit the nation’s southern border for a view of the growing border crisis.
“The vice president’s appearance on ‘The View’ marks her first in-studio talk show appearance since being sworn in as the country’s first female vice president, who is also a woman of color,” ABC News reported.
The interview plans to focus on “the latest on the COVID-19 pandemic, including vaccines, hesitancy, misinformation, boosters and the impact of the pandemic on women in the workforce, as well as issues surrounding Afghanistan, immigration and voting rights.”
The television appearance comes as more than 12,000 mostly Haitians migrants remain under the Del Rio bridge along the southern border. The shocking video footage has caused the border crisis to return to the forefront of the nation’s headlines.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas arrived in Del Rio on Monday where he gave remarks on the situation. However, Harris nor President Joe Biden has announced any plans regarding a border visit.
Harris visited El Paso, Texas, briefly after months of neglecting the border crisis. She arrived just days before a publicized visit by former President Donald Trump.
The appearance on “The View” may reach one segment of Democrat voters, but failing to visit the border is a failure to address the number one concern many have about the nation.
