AWOL Border Czar Skips Border Meeting

The vice president fiddled in New Jersey and elsewhere while our southern border burned.

Whatever happened to our nation’s border czar?

You remember: the African American Asian Caribbean woman whom Joe Biden tapped back in March to handle the worst illegal immigration crisis in our nation’s history? We haven’t seen or heard much of her lately, but we seem to recall her name: Vice President Kamala Harris.

But lest you think the veep is simply hiding out, keeping a low profile until her abysmal approval ratings recover, she was sighted in New Jersey recently — at a daycare center at Montclair State University and then at a vaccination site at a community college in Newark to promote the Biden administration’s, er, agenda.

If that weren’t pressing enough, Harris also found time to talk to kids about her fixation with the “craters on the moon” during a NASA YouTube video commemorating World Space Week — all while her boss’s poll numbers are cratering.

Remember: This is the same malingering border czar who last visited her area of responsibility in June. And even then, she opted to stop over for a few hours in El Paso, a relatively quiet border town a full 10 hours and one time zone away from Ground Zero of the border crisis, the Rio Grande Valley.

As for the hundreds of thousands of illegals streaming across our southern border — along with drug traffickers, sex traffickers, violent criminals, and Islamic terrorists — what’s all the fuss? Team Biden has everything under control. Just ask Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. “Today’s High-Level Security Dialogue marks an important new phase in the US-Mexico security partnership,” he declared on Friday. “We will work together under a new framework to guide our joint efforts, and work toward our shared goals of security and prosperity for our two nations.”

And remember, too: This is the same open-borders advocate who all but encouraged this calamity in March by telling would-be illegals: “Don’t come now. … Give us time to build an orderly, safe way to arrive in the United States.”

Got that? Don’t come right this second. Give us some time, so we can roll out the red carpet for you.

“It takes time to build out of the depths of cruelty that the administration before us established,” Mayorkas also said, in a pathetic attempt to pin the blame on Donald Trump. “What we are seeing now at the border is the immediate result of the dismantlement of the system and the time that it takes to rebuild it virtually from scratch.”

No. What we’re seeing now at the border is the immediate result of an open-borders immigration policy.

As for Biden, he’s not even pretending to care about border security. During this past Friday’s news dump, we got word that the administration has canceled two Trump-era border wall contracts that covered approximately 31 miles of territory along the southern border in Texas, thus marking the end of the previous administration’s efforts to stop the flow of illegals.

We’ve said before: The calamity at our southern border is one of Joe Biden’s making — and it’s a deliberate disaster meant to make more Democrats. Kamala Harris and her handlers clearly know this, which is why she’s been missing in action. This is the very definition of a snafu, and she doesn’t want to be tarred by it. Even if it means shirking her duty as vice president.

As we noted a week ago, a September 22 Gallup poll showed 49% of folks now approve of the job Harris is doing, which is six points higher than Biden’s 43%.

Of course, it’s not hard to poll higher than Scranton Joe these days. Even if you don’t show up for work.
