Biden announced that Harris would be handling the border crisis about three months ago. It’s a little early to declare her efforts a failure to solve a problem that has existed for a couple of centuries. Most illegals don’t come from Mexico, they are just passing through. They come from countries made dangerous by the American drug trade. She is in those areas, working to make them safer so people don’t want to make the dangerous and difficult trip to leave them and head for the country that created the problem but is itself safer to live in. She isn’t going to solve the immigration problem until the drug problem is solved, which could be done by legalizing everything and dispensing it like xanax, but she can make some minor changes that will make the problem a little better. That’s what she’s doing.
