During an interview on NBC News’ “Today” show, anchor Lester Holt grilled Kamala Harris over whether she has “any plans to visit the border”. Harris, however, laughed, appearing to shrug off the border crisis, as previously reported by Swamp Drain.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) reacted to Harris’ remarks, urging Harris to visit the border to “see the cages that the Biden/ Harris administration has built”, and to “stand up and be willing to enforce our laws”.

“At some point,” Harris claimed. “You know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole, this whole thing about the border– we’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border”.

Holt quickly corrected Harris, telling her directly, “You haven’t been to the border.”

“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris replied, before laughing. “I mean, I don’t understand the point you’re making. I’m not discounting the point you’re making.”

“Listen, I care about what’s happening at the border,” she alleged. “I’m in Guatemala because my focus is dealing with the root causes of migration. There may be some who think that is not important, but it is my firm belief that if we care about what’s happening at the border, we better care about the root causes and address them. So that’s what I’m doing.” Video Below

Kamala Harris’ remarks:

Senator Cruz responded on Fox News Tuesday, saying, “For 4 years, the media went on and on and on about ‘kids in cages, kids in cages’. What they never told you is Barack Obama built the cages, and now, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have built more cages. They’re bigger and more full.”

“And in that entire interview, what you don’t hear any willingness to fix the problem. They could fix the problem tomorrow,” he predicted. “They could fix the problem by ending ‘catch and release’ and by reinstating the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy. But neither Kamala or Joe are willing to do that.” Video Below

“Instead, she laughs it off and says, ‘Well, I haven’t been to Europe.’ Well, okay. You haven’t been to Europe, you haven’t been to Australia. But we don’t have an Australian border crisis. We don’t have a border crisis in Europe. We have a crisis on the southern border. Come to Texas. Come to the Rio Grande Valley. Come to Mcallen, Texas. Come see the cages that the Biden/ Harris administration has built,” the Texas Senator said.

“And then even more importantly, stand up and be willing to enforce our laws to fix it, because that’s not what they’re doing right now,” Senator Cruz insisted.
