Rick Scott Blasts Harris for Laughing off Border Crisis

'American families deserve better...'

Senator Rick Scott, R-Fla., rebuked Vice President Kamala Harris today for her failure to visit the southern border of the United States while traveling abroad.

“President Biden and Vice President Harris are more than willing to travel abroad, but they can’t be bothered to visit our own border where a crisis they created is raging,” Scott said.

Several months ago, President Joe Biden tagged Harris to lead his administration’s response to the border crisis.

Since taking on the new role Harris has done nothing but downplayed the crisis, suggesting that the border problems require no “tangible work.”

She has also opted to instead travel to Guatemala and Mexico, while Biden has remained virtually silent on the matter.

Further, since Biden took office, illegal immigration has skyrocketed.

As he pleaded for Harris and Biden to take action, Scott argued that “more than 180,000 illegal aliens tried to cross our southern border last month, threatening our national security and the safety of American families.”

In the first six months of 2021 alone, the Border Patrol has encountered nearly 930,000 border encounters, compared to just shy of 460,000 in all of 2020.

Border encounters are currently on pace to exceed the total number of encounters in the past three years combined.

As a result, Republicans have routinely attacked the new administration for its failure to act.

In today’s press release, Senator Scott rebuked Harris for her nonchalant approach to the crisis, saying, “this has to stop. Biden and Harris need to stop avoiding this crisis, stop laughing off this threat, get down to the border and take real steps to address securing the border.”

“American families deserve better,” he added.
