Vice President Harris Visits Border at El Paso

She toured a processing area in the Texas border city.

Vice President Kamala Harris went to the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, Friday. The vice president toured a Customs and Border Protection processing facility and met with advocates and NGOs. She stated she was in the border city to witness the effects of U.S.-bound immigration at the invitation of El Paso Congresswoman Veronica Escobar. She was also accompanied by Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The vice president said that coming to the border at El Paso was an important trip to see how the immigration process is faring, but said much of the focus still needs to be on solving root problems in countries such as Guatemala, including violence and corruption, that increases immigration traffic. “If you want to deal with the problem, you can’t just deal with the symptom of the problem,” Vice President Harris said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Vice President Harris as she has been designated the “border czar” by President Biden.
  • For U.S. border officials and agents dealing with the ongoing migrant surges at the border.
  • For state and local governments of border states and towns as they work to protect both citizens and migrants.
