Joe Biden is not the only Democrat panicking over sinking poll numbers.
Kamala Harris is right in the middle of the political firestorm.
And Kamala Harris went into hiding rather than face the music over this massive scandal.
After Joe Biden named Kamala Harris as his border czar Harris made it abundantly clear she wanted nothing to do with the position and avoided the border crisis at all costs.
Harris did not want to bear responsibility for Joe Biden’s open borders policies ahead of a 2024 or 2028 presidential run.
But now it’s too late for that.
A record 1.7 million illegal aliens attempted to invade America in 2021.
Joe Biden created a magnet that lured illegal aliens by essentially ending the enforcement of immigration law in the interior of the country.
Early on in the Biden administration, ICE Acting Director Tae Johnson claimed the agency would focus on “threats to national security, border security, and our public safety.”
The Center for Immigration Studies found through a Freedom of Information Act request that in practice this meant the Biden administration decreased deportations of illegal aliens by 90 percent.
“This collapse in deportations is undeniably due to the policies President Biden put in place upon taking office, including a deportation moratorium (later blocked in federal court) and by severely restricting the types of cases ICE officers can pursue,” the Center for Immigration Studies’ Director of Policy Studies Jessica Vaughan told the Washington Free Beacon. “Officers are allowed to take action against only the most egregious illegal alien lawbreakers, and even then they have to complete voluminous paperwork for what would normally be routine deportation cases.”
The Center for Immigration Studies produced a report laying out the lawless approach to the border that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris adopted by making it nearly impossible for Border Patrol agents to deport illegal aliens.
“In addition to requiring what is essentially pointless busywork to seek an extra layer of approval for each arrest, agency leadership has also reduced interior enforcement by downsizing the number of working officers,” the CIS report reads. “This has been accomplished in many ways, including sending officers to work at the border and even by paying officers not to work.”
The numbers back up the findings.
In the first six months of 2019 the Trump administration deported around 18,000 criminal illegal aliens.
But from January to July 2021 the Biden administration cut that number to 6,000.
In addition, the ICE field office in San Antonio, Texas carried out 44,523 deportations in 2019 under Donald Trump compared to just 2,386 deportations under the Biden administration in 2021.
Kamala Harris wants no part of being the public face of the Biden administration’s self-inflicted border crisis.
From day one, polls showed the American people gave Joe Biden his lowest approval numbers on the issue of immigration.
Kamala Harris still holds delusions of winning the presidency in 2024 or 2028.
And even Harris understands that serving as the symbol for the administration’s greatest failure is a one-way ticket to a landslide defeat.
