Border crisis head Vice President Kamala Harris defended her refusal to visit the U.S.-Mexico border, where an illegal crossing crisis rages on, by comparing it to her lack of presence in other foreign countries in Europe.
In her recent interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Harris said she didn’t understand why her refusal to visit the U.S.-Mexico border is such a big deal. At first, the vice president claimed the administration has “been to the border,” but when pressed by Holt, she diverted the conversation.
“You haven’t been to the border,” he noted.
“I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris said, shrugging off the implications of the question. “And I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
