Democrat Kamala Harris, the sitting Vice President of the United States of America and the administration’s ‘Border Czar,’ has been a historically bad public servant, as evidenced by the childish and reckless way she addresses the concerns of the American people.
Often Harris is coy, flirty, and babyish when speaking on the world stage. Moreover, she is mainly confused about the subject matter at hand- and easily distracted during her public appearances, so her communication of necessary data is unsatisfying to people who are listening.
Harris is also flippant to the media, who inquire about details of gravely essential matters like how the US Government is going to handle a looming and massive humanitarian crisis on our Southern Border – which is alarming because the conditions there appear to be forming into a national security threat for the US.
In Feb. 2022, a group of Republicans crafted legislation to force Harris to do her job and protect American interests at the border.
“Ronny Jackson (TX-13) introduced the Border Czar Accountability Act of 2022, which will force “Border Czar” Kamala Harris to do her job and visit our southern border rather than dismiss and ignore the worst border crisis in American history,” A press statement from Jackson’s office read.
“The Border Czar Accountability Act will require any Cabinet member appointed by the President to lead efforts related to immigration or securing the U.S.-Mexico border to visit the border every 60 days. It also requires the Cabinet Member(s) to submit a report to the President and Congress no later than 15 days after each visit, explaining their findings and outlining solutions for improving the security and situation at the southern border.
If the report is not submitted, then no federal funds will be given or expended to immigration efforts led by that Cabinet Member,” Jackson wrote.
But the situation is getting more dangerous every day for the US, so more drastic measures are needed.
With Democrat Joe Biden signaling that he is about to lift the restrictions on “no holds bared’ illegal immigration- by ending the Trump era Title 42 restrictions on migrants crossing our border, some Republicans are starting to push back to try to gain some control over a totally out of control situation by removing Harris from the mix.
Title 42 ends in 5 days.
Where is Border Czar Kamala Harris?

Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief on the pushback to take a more urgent step:
“Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson has introduced a resolution calling for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as the “border czar.”
The resolution, which has 26 co-sponsors, comes as Republicans argue Harris and President Joe Biden have completely failed to handle the border crisis.”
There were 164,973 encounters with migrants at the southern border in February, which is up 7% from January and also a 63% increase from the previous year, according to new U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data.
“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,” Jackson said about his resolution.
“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,” Jackson continued.
Jackson told the Daily Caller, in Feb. about the motivation for his bill, and his desire to hold Harris accountable for her terrible service to the American people:
“Biden’s push for open border policies and amnesty for all illegal immigrants has created and continues to bolster the worst border crisis in history.
The current situation at our southern border is a public health crisis, a haven for criminal activity, and a threat to our national security. Despite alarming data coming in from the border, President Biden’s Senior Cabinet Member and so-called “Border Czar” Kamala Harris has wholly dismissed and ignored her responsibility to address and solve this crisis.
President Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris as Border Czar 318 days ago, and she only visited the southern border once for a short photo op, far away from where the crisis is taking place, and only after receiving pressure from my Republican colleagues and me. Her visit proved to be nothing more than a failed attempt to quiet her critics.
However, within the same 318 days, Border Czar Harris has found time to waste our taxpayer money on uneventful foreign trips to Northern Triangle countries.
The American people deserve better, and the leaders in charge of these issues need to be held accountable for their blatant failures. My bill would not allow Vice President Harris or any Cabinet Member the ability to dismiss or ignore their duties.
Border Security is National Security, and the Biden Administration’s open border agenda has left American citizens exposed to serious national security threats like drugs, potential terrorists, human trafficking, and a litany of other dangers.
I urge my colleagues to join in support of the Border Czar Accountability Act of 2022. It is time for the Biden Administration to wake up and fix this massive and avoidable crisis.”
The administration has yet to act on the concerns, which are building by the day and making many people feel we are in a race against time to protect our nation.
