President Joe Biden is asleep at the switch. However, Vice President Kamala Harris is equally disengaged when it comes to the border crisis, which she was tapped to handle but has yet to address.
Arizona has been inundated by illegal aliens crossing the border, and Attorney General Mark Brnovich wants Harris removed from the role altogether, the Washington Examiner reported. The GOP official called her handling of the crisis “absolutely abysmal” in a letter to the president Wednesday.
“Her response to the border crisis has been absolutely abysmal, so I am requesting that she be replaced as your ‘border czar,’” Brnovich said in his letter to Biden. He rightly charged that “50 days into her appointment,” Harris has completely “failed to articulate any plan” for dealing with the issue.
The attorney general stated nobody in his office has been contacted by the vice president despite their repeated cries for help. “The truth is that our border officials are overwhelmed, law enforcement is understaffed, and local ranchers live in daily fear of threats from Cartel operatives. It’s shameful that they are not receiving federal support,” Brnovich said.
“We cannot afford to wait another day, week, or month of apathy and inaction by any official in your administration,” he later stated. “I conclude by respectfully requesting that Vice President Harris be replaced as America’s ‘border czar,’” Brnovich said.
This letter comes at the same time a recent poll revealed that Americans largely disapprove of the job Harris is doing. Adults overall gave her a 48% unfavorable rating compared to a 41% favorable rating. Along party lines, 84% of Republicans had an unfavorable opinion compared to only 19% of Democrats. Notably, 57% of independents gave her unfavorable marks compared to only 32% favorable.
Do Americans have a favorable or an unfavorable opinion of Vice President Kamala Harris?

By any measure, it’s undeniable that Harris is botching the issue. She is too busy visiting everywhere else and blaming former President Donald Trump for the problem, despite his hard-line stance on illegal immigration. She excused her inaction by stating that the problem can’t be “solved overnight,” Fox News reported.
The administration is bungling every issue, but none so boldly as the border crisis. They clearly don’t care about migrants or the people in the U.S. who suffer economically because of the influx of illegal immigrants — and that’s why Harris needs to go.
