Texas Republicans have announced that they will be introducing legislation to remove Vice President Kamala Harris from her position as “Border Czar” after the handling of the border has taken a turn for the worse.
Conservative Brief reported that Republican Representative of Texas, Ronny Jackson, has introduced legislation that will aim to remove Harris from her position after Republicans have argued that Harris and the Biden administration have failed to manage the border crisis.
Jackson spoke on the legislation stating, “Instead of working for the American people, Kamala Harris has worked against us by ignoring her responsibilities as Border Czar. Rather than doing her job, Harris sits back and watches as illegal immigration skyrockets, countless people at home and abroad are victimized by drug and human trafficking, and CBP officers are left without resources or support from the Biden Administration. Make no mistake – Harris’ approach is by design, and she must be stopped.”
He continued saying, “It is past time for Joe Biden to remove her from the Border Czar role and appoint someone who will put Americans’ interests first. A nation without borders is no nation at all. We need a real leader at the helm who will secure our southern border, and, in turn, our country’s bright future. A single canned photo op and pointless foreign trips to Northern Triangle countries on the taxpayers’ dime are not cutting it. I urge Speaker Pelosi to bring my resolution to the House Floor immediately, for the American peoples’ sake.”
Texas Democrat Representative Henry Cuellar, who represents an area along the southern border, recently called for Harris to be removed from her position stating “I’ve moved on from the vice president to say, ‘OK, let’s work with the ambassadors and let’s work with the State Department. Let’s work with the Homeland Secretary.’”
Cuellar continued, “I think that’s the way to address it, but I know that the media has put a lot of focus on the vice president, but with all due respect, she was given that title. I don’t think she’s, with all due respect, put the effort in there…We’ve got to look at other folks that have the expertise on that.”
Even people in her own party want to see VP Harris removed from the “border czar” position. Cuellar’s resolution has 26 co-sponsors and it is hopeful that with its passing the border crisis will be taken over by someone who has better expertise in the area.
