Republicans in the House of Representatives have introduced a resolution to remove Kamala Harris from her position as border czar. Ronny Jackson, a Texas Republican and former White House physician, presented the resolution.
Republicans say that Harris and Joe Biden have entirely failed to tackle the border situation; the resolution has 26 co-sponsors.
According to official US Customs and Border Patrol data, there were 164,973 interactions with migrants at the southern border in February, up 7% from January and up 63 percent from the previous year.
“Instead of working for the American people, Kamala Harris has worked against us by ignoring her responsibilities as border czar. Rather than doing her job, Harris sits back and watches as illegal immigration skyrockets, countless people at home and abroad are victimized by drug and human trafficking, and CBP officers are left without resources or support from the Biden Administration. Make no mistake – Harris’ approach is by design, and she must be stopped,” Jackson said.
