Texas Representative Chip Roy recently sent Vice President Kamala Harris a nine-page letter that expressed his, and the American peoples’ disappointment in Biden’s so-called “Border Czar” not visiting the Southern Border while the border crisis continues to rage at the U.S. Mexico Border.
“To understand the crisis, you must familiarize yourself with the Southern Border of the United States. Thus far, despite the availability of a direct flight via taxpayer-provided aircraft, you have not taken a single trip,” the Congressman opens.
Representative Roy also criticized VP Harris for traveling to Guatemala and Mexico before she could be bothered to travel to the southern border itself, of which she was named Czar, and meet with Americans affected by the Biden Border Crisis, stating:
While you just traveled to Guatemala and Mexico City, you have not visited in person with Americans, American business owners, American ranchers, American law enforcement, or even the endangered migrants directly impacted at our southern border.
You may have seen the recent NBC interview where Harris was pressed on why she hasn't visited the Southern Border, the Vice President attempted to excuse the lack of action by insolently snapping “And I haven't been to Europe!”
In the memo, Rep. Roy also outlines six steps that would help end the border crisis:
- Immediately Enforce Title 42 Pandemic Protocols
- Immediately reinstate the Migrant Protection Protocols; work with neighboring countries
- Finish building border fencing and infrastructure
- Work with Congress to Fix Loopholes (the actual “root” causes)
- Root out and Destroy Cartels
- Immediately enforce our immigration laws within the interior of the United States.
Finally, Congressman Roy finished his letter with the reminder:
If the Vice President, and by extension the President, laughs off her duty to visit the Texas-Mexico border as a ‘grand gesture,’ then consider this memo as the update on the state of the border and service of notice of the right and responsibility of Texans to deal with the crisis ourselves in the absence of responsible federal leadership.
