Kamala Harris immigration: VP to call on UN allies to help with immigration crisis
As of late, Vice President Kamala Harris is facing criticism from Republicans and increasing calls to personally visit the southern border. In her remarks to the United Nations, Harris called on allies to assist the US in tackling the crisis that the Biden administration is currently facing.
In an interview with CNN Sunday, Harris said that the immigration crisis from Central America cannot be solved right away and if it was possible, then previous administrations would have been able to do it.
Harris also pinned the blame on the Trump administration for putting all the efforts to stem migration from the very source to a “standstill.” Harris added that her upcoming meeting with Mexican President Andres Miguel Lopez Obrador would be the start of the two countries’ efforts to “rebuild.”
“We’re going to be increasing the requests that we’re making of our allies in the United Nations,” said Harris. “This is about the Western Hemisphere, we are a neighbor in the Western Hemisphere. We have the capacity to actually get in there if we are consistent. Part of the problem is that under the previous administration, they pulled out, essentially, a lot of what had been the continuum of work, and it essentially came to a standstill.”
Harris noted that she is working with US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield to bring in international resources to help solve the crisis. The Biden administration has seen record numbers of migrants looking to cross over to the US. Republicans have increasingly criticized Harris for avoiding personally visiting the southern border.
In that same interview, Harris was criticized for practicing extreme social distancing from anchor Dana Bash. Viewers pointed out the large distance between Harris and Bash, who were seated six feet apart from each other during the interview. Some described the distance as “unnecessary” and all for show.
This comes as the CDC updated its guidelines last month, saying that those who have been fully vaccinated can now gather indoors without a mask or remain six feet apart from those who are also fully vaccinated. Those who have been fully vaccinated can now also gather indoors with unvaccinated people who are not at high risk.
