Kamala Harris slammed again on Tuesday by the former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, as the Vice President still has yet to set a date to travel there and has gone nearly 100 days without a press conference on the migrant surge.
Haley said that Harris has done an “embarrassing” job handling the border crisis since she was put in charge of it, adding that she “doesn’t know what is happening” down there.
“This is embarrassing,” Haley lamented. “I don’t know what the problem is. She is fearful, but Kamala Harris was given one job — one job — and that was to deal with the border, and any leader knows you can’t fix what you can’t see.”
“She hasn’t been on the ground,” she continued. “She hasn’t talked to Border Patrol. She doesn’t know what is happening there. So, she says she wants to go to the root cause, and then she brings up Europe. No one has given her a job in Europe. She’s got the job of the border. And I appreciate that she’s going to Guatemala; I appreciate she’s going to Mexico. You know why? Because both of those leaders say that the Biden administration is the reason they are having all these problems at the border.”
“This is the same woman that tweeted out, ‘Come one come all, we are open for everyone,’” Haley concluded. “I mean, all you have to do is look at that. And so now she’s going to say do not come. You know it says do not come? When you show up at the border, and you have actions that speak louder than words. I don’t know what her fear is at the border, but clearly, she has one. And I don’t know what Biden’s fear of the border is, but he has one. What I will call it is flat-out denial. They think that if they don’t go, it won’t be real. It’s very real.”
This came hours after Harris snapped when confronted by NBC’s Lester Holt about not visiting the border, responding by saying that she also hasn’t “been to Europe.”
Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn’t get it.
Holt: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?”
Harris: “We’ve been to the border. We’ve been the border.”
Holt: “YOU haven’t been to the border.”

“To folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico Border—do not come. Do not come.”
Harris’ change in messaging did not appear to be enough for Haley.
“You know what says do not come—when you show up at the border and you have actions speak louder than words.”
