First came Vice President Kamala Harris telling Central American migrants not to even try to enter the United States, sparking a flurry of attacks from the left. Trying to extricate the VP’s Chuck Taylors from her mouth, Harris spokeswoman Symone Sanders boasted that “The President and Vice President have been clear in dissuading people from making the dangerous and treacherous journey to the U.S./Mexico border,” according to Fox News. Then came the realization of how much any of that so-called dissuading means as U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that border agents encountered 180,034 illegal immigrants at the border in May, an increase from April. May’s numbers represented the highest in 20 years, and the highest to date for the administration of President Joe Biden. “You can’t imagine anything more embarrassing for the vice president than to conclude what is a uniquely disastrous Latin American tour that’s been widely mocked by the left and the right than to come home and immediately have the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is the worst border month since Biden took office,” former White House aide Stephen Miller told the Washington Examiner.
