‘She Was Supposed To Be In Charge’: MSNBC Anchor Tears Into ‘Border Czar’ Kamala Harris September 21, 2021MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle ripped Kamala Harris for neglecting her duty as the “border czar” as the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border continues to get worse.
During a segment on her program, Ruhle questioned where Harris has been and what she is actually doing to address the ongoing crisis at the southern border.
“How about the message from our vice president, where is she?” Ruhle asked.
“She was supposed to be in charge of all of these migration issues, going to those Northern Triangle countries that are obviously not Haiti, that was one of her first international trips with the message do not come here illegally. People aren’t listening. What is she saying now?” Ruhle continued.
“Well, we haven’t heard a lot from the vice president. Of course, you point out she was focused on those Northern Triangle countries, a lot of her work was in Guatemala working with that government. A lot of the diplomacy which was what the vice president was focused on was with Mexico,” NBC News reporter Julia Ainsley said.
“And essentially what we’re seeing now is a breakdown of that work with Mexico. Mexico for a while was stopping a lot of migration coming from Guatemala into Mexico, keeping people from ever even reaching the U.S. border. But now Mexico became so overwhelmed with this particular migrant surge that they were beyond capacity and we were seeing Mexico essentially give up in some cases just allow buses through their country to the U.S. border, which is how so many people got here so quickly,” Ainsley added.
