If the Biden administration had hoped to give an impression of seriousness about dealing with the problems along the U.S. southern border through Vice President Kamala Harris’ “visit,” it is safe to conclude that it has ended up being a fail.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) knows that more effort might have resulted in something that was actually helpful.
Harris didn't talk to Texans whose homes have been invaded, who've had guns brandished against them, whose property has been destroyed by gangs & cartel members coming across the border.
She hasn't talked to families destroyed by Fentanyl smuggled into TX.
She doesn't care. https://t.co/8hC3oQFUev

The New York Post calls the trip what it was, as Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R) points out.

"Harris didn’t even go to the actual border. She visited a Border Patrol station about nine miles from the Rio Grande, talked to some immigration activists and legal service providers, posed for press photos back at the airport, and departed for Los Angeles before 1 p.m." @nypost https://t.co/9MT4kT8X81

Why even waste the time and resources?
