VP Kamala Harris is finally visiting the border today several weeks after having been put in charge of the crisis there. However, Harris still isn’t at the actual border and won’t be anywhere near where the problem is the worst. The spin offered by the VP is dizzying:

Among politicians welcoming Harris to an El Paso border facility was Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar, who has a name for the area:
"The New Ellis Island." Democrats aren't even hiding it anymore. They're inviting people to come illegally and continuing the Biden administration trend of America Last. pic.twitter.com/Nbl9TXKzRk

Democrats are really going to try and normalize the disaster the Biden administration has created, aren’t they?
The crisis is nothing to be proud of. Children are being moved by the cartel, and drugs are flooding the country. pic.twitter.com/H7rqhpGFKT

Dem Rep Veronica Escobar in El Paso just said "Welcome to the new Ellis Island!" This during Kamala Harris trip to border. Kamala is on the defensive. This orchestrated tightly-controlled visit to a town hundreds of miles from ground zero RGV Del Rio is absurd. #KamalaHarris

If it the El Paso facility really was “the new Ellis Island,” Democrats wouldn’t like what would be happening:
For Rep Escobar:
If El Paso is the new Ellis Island, can you walk us through the process that Ellis Island used?

Anyone who has actually been to Ellis Island – or has done any amount of research into how it worked knows how ridiculous this remark is.

My grandparents came over through Ellis Island. They came over LEGALLY. They signed NATURALIZATION FORMS pledging their allegiance to their new country (not losing their heritage) but being Americans first and following OUR LAWS. To come here: 1. legally 2. assimilate

Yep, one of these things is not like the other.
