56 House Republicans Sign Petition That Pushes VP Kamala Harris To Step Down From Her Role As Southern Border Czar

56 republican signed a letter that is meant for Joe Biden that implores him to relinquish Harris as the Border Czar, according to Town Hall.

“Despite being in the midst of a border crisis this country has not seen in two decades, Vice President Harris has not yet shown adequate interest in observing this crisis first-hand,” the letter says.

“It is an insult to our hardworking Border Patrol, ICE, and local law enforcement officials that put their lives on the line every day that the Vice President has yet to speak with them.”

From Town Hall:

As of Tuesday, it’s been over 90 days into Harris’ embarrassing tenure as the “border czar.” She was appointed to this role back in March. Rather than commemorating such a day with a trip to help rectify the crisis at hand, she’s parading through Pennsylvania promoting Child Tax Credit. Not surprising, as she failed to visit the border on her trip to Mexico and Guatemala to address the border crisis earlier this month.

In the interim, Harris traveled stateside several times, first to South Carolina to promote coronavirus vaccinations, and, as noted before, Pennsylvania. But, no amount of effort fighting for other issues can disguise the fact that Harris assumed the role of vice president, and with that, assumed the responsibility of handling the border crisis. Not visiting the border speaks volumes.

So much so, that we reported that House Democrat Henry Cueller (D-TX) penned a letter to Harris inviting her to visit the southern border. It’s only a matter of time before more Democrats will recognize Harris is not following through with her duty to alleviate the border crisis.
