Kamala Harris’ schedule shows Team Biden’s true border priorities


Is anyone here in charge? President Joe Biden last week tasked Vice President Kamala Harris with leading the White House response to the near-record surge of migrants crossing the southern border. Yet her schedule doesn’t have a single immigration-related meeting. Why doesn’t Harris seem to be doing anything to solve what she now calls “a huge problem”? White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday “clarified” that the veep is only in charge of diplomacy to address the problem’s “root causes.” Huh? Did it really take nearly a week to set the record straight, or did the president change his mind? Maybe Harris decided she didn’t want the job. After all, leaked administration documents show that frontline agencies expect the number of unaccompanied children crossing to soon double (again) to far above record levels. The feds already have an all-time high of more than 18,000 unaccompanied minors in custody, with about 5,500 held in temporary facilities not meant to house kids at all. They’re being held an average of 90 hours — though the legal limit is 72 — because there’s simply no room for them elsewhere.
