Harris Won't Talk Migration With Mex Pres. Friday, Instead They'll Discuss "Foliage"
On April 14th Harris was asked when she would inspect the border and address the crisis, she said, “It was Mayorkas’ job”.
“We must address the symptoms, and that is what is happening with the team of folks who are working on the border, led by Ali Mayorkas. But we also have to deal with the root causes. Otherwise, we are just in a perpetual system of only dealing with the symptoms,” she said.
Fox News reported: “Mayorkas last visited the border region in April – drawing allegations soon after that he had quickly broken a promise to hold weekly meetings with the region’s sheriffs.”
Harris assumed the southern border crisis in March, when President Joe Biden said: “I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this.” Since then, however, Harris seems to be hesitant to draw the press’s attention to the issue.
A virtual meeting between Harris and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is scheduled for Friday to discuss “immigration,” but that is not be the main focus of the discussion.
