Vice President Kamala Harris advocated exclusively for non-American citizens when she visited the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday, according to Breitbart News.
The “border czar” made her first trip to the border, stopping at the far western border town of El Paso Texas where she told the citizens there that they needed to remember to have compassion for illegal immigrants.
Harris said that Americans should not “lose sight of the fact that we’re talking about human beings” when considering the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants to enter the United States in the past few months.
“Let’s not lose sight that we’re talking about stories … involve horrendous tales of abuse and fear and harm, not only for folks who are coming from their home countries experiencing that but along the path of their migration,” Harris said, adding:
“And so let’s recognize with a sense of humanity that these issues must be addressed in a way that is informed by fact and informed by reality and informed by perspective that actually is dedicated to addressing problems and fixing them in the most productive and constructive way.”
Harris conspicuously did not talk about middle-class Americans who are adversely impacted by immigration and who will likely suffer depressed wages as a result of paying for medical care and other services for illegal migrants, as well as more competition in the labor market.
Concern about the problem of immigration is so great that the state of Texas filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, pointing to the excessive cost Texas are being asked to pay for an insecure border:
“The release of illegal aliens … into Texas exposes Texas residents to COVID-19 and causes Texas to incur significant costs, including higher education, driver’s license, and identification card, healthcare, and law enforcement costs,” the lawsuit states:
“When the [Biden administration] do[es] not remove or exclude illegal aliens in compliance with federal law, the Defendants’ inaction causes Texas to incur these higher costs, which are not recoverable at law from the federal government.”
