Despite recent reports that the Biden administration’s border crisis continues to see thousands of unaccompanied migrant minors in cages being denied basic human rights and dignity, designated immigration czar Kamala Harris already has pivoted to her next major task.
“Today, I’m asking Vice President Harris to help these efforts, and lead them, among her many other responsibilities,” Mr. Biden said Tuesday during a speech Tulsa, Okla. “With her leadership and your support, we’re going to overcome again, I promise you, but it’s going to take a hell of a lot of work.”
The bill—which essentially would nationalize election oversight and codify every legally dubious tactic used by Democrats in recent elections to commit widespread, systemic vote fraud—has been dubbed a nonstarter by Republicans and a handful of moderate Democrats.
That means Harris’s duties would involve selling the American public on ending the filibuster—an idea widely condemned by the Left during the Trump administration—in order to pass legislation that would secure permanent majorities for Democrats.
Biden bellyached about the two defectors during his visit to Tulsa, blaming them for his inability to railroad through the most overreaching, far-left agenda in modern presidential history.
“I hear all the folks on TV saying, ‘Why doesn’t Biden get this done’?” he complained. “Well, because Biden only has a majority of effectively four votes in the House and a tie in the Senate, with two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends.”
But in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, Harris boasted that she could be very persistent when she agreed to set her mind to it.
“I eat no for breakfast,” she said, referring to the many hurdles she encountered as the Indo-Caribbean daughter of Berkeley college professors who was forced to rely upon her guile, looks and minority identification in order to fast-track her political career in the country’s most radically leftist state.
It is unclear whether Biden had vetted the new assignment with Harris before announcing it.
The cognitively challenged commander-in-chief did not appear to have gotten the OK from his vice president before delegating the border crisis.
“I will just reiterate that the vice president is not doing the border,” Sanders responded shortly after the announcement.
Harris herself also cackled at the idea of visiting the border during a trip to Florida, and she has since proceeded to distance herself from the issue.
White House staff later agreed that she would focus on a “diplomatic” mission with the Northern Triangle countries of Central America, where a sizable portion of the thousands of immigrants flooding the border daily are believed to begin their journey.
Although the Trump administration had successfully curbed the problem by applying pressure on countries like Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, one of Biden’s first moves as president was to sign executive orders rolling back those policies.
No replacement policy has yet been announced, although recent media reports made reference to a new “initiative” spearheaded by Harris that would partner with Microsoft and other left-leaning companies to incentivize job creation in the crime-ridden region.
While the election overhaul is more within Harris’s wheelhouse, the New York Times described it as a “politically thorny problem” that faces long odds of success.
Some top Republican organizations and leaders, including Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, have pledged to use every available resource to fight the corrupt effort.
Biden’s reliance on the ambitious Harris to step into such fraught and divisive initiatives has fueled speculation that their private dynamic may be more adversarial than cooperative.
Yet, in a released statement, Harris appeared to accept the new assignment with more zeal than the last one.
“In the days and weeks ahead, I will engage the American people, and I will work with voting rights organizations, community organizations, and the private sector to help strengthen and uplift efforts on voting rights nationwide,” she said. “And we will also work with members of Congress to help advance these bills.”
