Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the ongoing child migrant crisis at the United States-Mexico border, but instead of visiting the ever-increasing number of detention camps housing unaccompanied children, many of which are now far above capacity, Harris will spend the week touting President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan and touring sites dispensing the COVID-19 vaccine.
On Monday, Harris joined embattled California governor Gavin Newsom in Oakland, California, at a water treatment facility that the Los Angeles Times noted is expected to benefit from the multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure plan proposed last week.
“The trip included a tour with the governor of the kind of water-treatment facility that could benefit from the proposed infrastructure plan President Biden unveiled last week. It includes more than $100 billion for a variety of water projects, including replacing lead pipes and improving groundwater storage in the West,” according to the outlet.
Harris gave a short speech on the importance of “water equity.”
“Water is a nonpartisan issue,”
