Kamala Harris has refused to do anything about the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, but she’s planning another trip overseas.
Fox News reported Harris is planning a trip to Europe next month.
“Harris will travel to Paris in November to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, deliver a speech at the annual Paris Peace Forum and attend the Paris Conference on Libya, the White House said Friday,” according to Fox News.
“The announcement came the same day that Harris told reporters in the Bronx borough of New York City that she had no immediate plans to visit the southern border, despite U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials announcing that a record number of illegal immigrants had been detained there over the past year,” Fox News added.
“But it appears she will be traveling to Europe before making a second visit to the border. It will be her third international trip, following visits to Guatemala and Mexico in June, prior to the Texas trip, and a journey across the Pacific in August, visiting leaders in Singapore and Vietnam and making a jet refueling stop in Japan. Along the U.S.-Mexico border, CBP personnel have detained 1.7 million illegal immigrants attempting to enter the U.S. during fiscal 2021, which ended Sept. 30, the Post reported. The figure was the highest ever recorded for a single year, the report said,” Fox News continued in its report.
Back in September, Fox News host Will Cain argued that Harris was “used” by Joe Biden’s team for political purposes to help win the presidential election.
During a segment on the network, Cain and the panel discussed how the Biden administration is jumping from crisis to crisis, and Harris does not seem to be present or involved.
She’s been “missing in action,” Cain said, speculating that maybe Harris is keeping her distance as Biden is imploding.
“If I’m Kamala Harris right now, I’m extremely offended because you have been used,” Cain said.
“They used you to pander to a voting base to get votes. They had a minority, they had a woman and now that they don’t need her, they have shelved her because her approval rating is -19,” he continued.
“Kamala has a right to be very, very upset,” he said.
“But the Biden administration is in a very tough position. Do we admit that we used Kamala to get elected, or do we run her back out and hurt our numbers the way hers have plummeted?” Cain asked.
Co-host Shannon Bream added that Harris’ own presidential campaign never took off and she was forced to drop from the race.
“She was a great fit for this ticket,” she said. “But remember during the primaries she never caught on fire. She wasn’t great in the primary debates. She wasn’t polling well, she couldn’t raise money… So while she was a good fit on the ticket, whether she can be a good leader and manage things well is a totally different question.”
Greg Gutfeld suggested Harris prefers to stay hidden while Biden’s presidency takes a tumble, and is currently being kept “behind the glass like an ax.”
“They’re just waiting for the right time to break the glass and take her out,” he said. “We really don’t know how bad she is but Democrats are going to assume it can’t be any worse than this.”
