Joe Biden put Kamala Harris in charge of the border weeks ago and she has done virtually nothing. She has not even visited the border.
Newt Gingrich recently suggested that this is precisely why Harris was put in charge.
It’s not a bad theory.
Newt Gingrich: Biden Put Harris in Charge of Border ‘Because They Knew She Wouldn’t Do Anything’
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News on Monday that President Joe Biden’s administration placed Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border “because they knew she wouldn’t do anything.”
Gingrich claimed in an interview with Fox & Friends that “if you look at a piece of history, sometimes the obvious is accurate. 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.”
He went on to accuse Democrats of wanting 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.
“So from their perspective, the next 10-15,000 people [who come in] are good because it further increases the number of illegal immigrants in the United States, which is what they want.”

It’s amazing how quickly the Biden administration made a total mess out of the border.
It was under control under Trump.
