Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says the only reason that Vice President Kamala Harris was put in charge of the border crisis was because everyone knew “she wouldn’t do anything” about it.
“If you look at a piece of history, sometimes the obvious is accurate,” Gingrich said during a segment on Fox News. “They wanted Harris to be in charge of the border because they knew she wouldn’t do anything. This is not a mistake, this is why they refuse to call it a crisis.”
“They want the border to be open. Go back and look at the presidential primary debates. They are all in favor of open borders. They are all in favor of eliminating ICE. They are all in favor of eliminating any threat to sanctuary cities,” Gingrich said.
“So from their perspective, the next ten or fifteen thousand people [who come in] are good because it further increases the number of illegal immigrants in the United States, which is what they want,” Gingrich continued. “Of course, it’s working. What if your goal was to have the maximum number of illegal people in the United States? How would you do better than Biden?”
Biden announced on March 24 that Harris would lead the administration’s efforts at the border, and she has not visited one time to even hold a press event on the crisis.
And, just to be clear, NBC News published a report on March 24 titled: “Biden tasks Harris with ‘stemming the migration’ on southern border.”
Harris is 100% appointed to “handle” the border crisis and she has not visited the border one time since Biden named her.
The border crisis created by the Biden administration is about to get a lot worse in the coming months.
According to a report from CNN, internal government calculations from the Biden administration project that officials expect to encounter an estimated two million people at the border in 2021.
“US Border Patrol encounters are also expected to be largely made up of single adults, who are being turned away at the US southern border as soon as they’re encountered under a public health order, and as a result, might also account for repeat crossers,” CNN reported.
But combined, the data — based on preliminary reporting as of this month — illustrates the continuing challenge for the Biden administration, which has already faced a series of hurdles on the US-Mexico border, particularly with unaccompanied children and migrants families.
Data reviewed by CNN shows that up to 1.1 million single adults are expected through September, along with up to around 828,000 families and more than 200,000 unaccompanied children. According to the projections, border Patrol encounters are expected to continue to rise month-by-month, which can vary.
This is the second batch of leaked documents revealing that the Biden administration has created a massive crisis at the border.
According to documents leaked to Axios, the Biden administration is projecting that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September.
Almost 110 border-crossers that Biden’s DHS released ended up testing positive for the coronavirus between January 25 and March 1.
