Vice President Harris is headed to the border.
She'll visit El Paso, Texas along with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Republicans have been demanding Harris come to the border for the last several months after President Biden asked her to run border efforts. Former President Trump will be coming to the border next week and says the only reason why Harris is visiting now is because of his trip.
Symone Sanders, the vice president’s senior adviser and chief spokesperson, confirmed the trip in a statement, saying, “Earlier this year, the President asked the Vice President to oversee our diplomatic efforts to address the root causes of migration from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. As a part of this ongoing work, the Vice President traveled to Guatemala and Mexico earlier this month and will travel to El Paso on Friday.”
