The Biden administration announced last Wednesday that Vice President Kamala Harris will take take over as lead on border and migration issues. By Friday Harris’ spokeswoman told reporters VP Harris “is not doing the border,” Gateway Pundit reported.
Harris told Biden “no” to accepting the responsibility of diplomatic efforts with one of the countries on our border.
Full quote from Harris spokesperson Symone Sanders:
"I will just reiterate that the @VP is not doing the border. The president asked the vice president to take on the diplomatic efforts with Mexico and countries of the North Triangle to address the root causes of migration."

This announcement was on the heels of VP Harris’ awkward laugh in reply to reporters asking when she would be visiting the border. Some described is as a nervous cackle, something that is becoming a tell for Harris.
Biden claimed Harris’ experience as California attorney general working on human rights and combating organized crime, qualified her for taking the lead on the border.
When President Biden announced Harris would take the lead for the border crisis (created by his administration), we suggested it was a deliberate tactic to put her in charge of something impossible to fix (by this administration), and get her out of the way for the time being. It wouldn’t be the first time a U.S. President dispatched a VP elsewhere or assigned a distasteful task.
Isn’t it interesting that after Kamala cackled when asked if she was going to visit the border, Pres. Biden puts Harris in charge of border crisis. She clearly wants to replace Biden, but I imagine his people don’t like or trust her. Problems in paradise?https://t.co/7GIlFOG3fm

Are there problems in the Biden-Harris administration already?
It is notable that not one other mainstream media outlet reported this news.
California’s border with Mexico is one of the busiest crossings in the country. It is once again a problem with illegal immigrants attempting to cross, following several years of calm. Earlier in March, when a SUV was struck by a semitruck in California’s Imperial Valley, the 13 people killed were found to be among dozens of undocumented illegal migrants who entered the United States through a hole in the border fence with Mexico, the US Border Patrol said, CNN reported.
“At least 44 people had managed early Tuesday [in March] to enter the US through a 10-foot breach in the border fence near Interstate 8, the Border Patrol said in a statement. Surveillance footage reviewed by border agents shortly after 6 a.m. showed two separate vehicles leaving the area where the fence was breached in what officials are investigating as ‘smuggling events.'”
