Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) released a video Tuesday that included taking a cardboard cutout of Vice President Kamala Harris to the border to draw attention to the immigration crisis—and the Biden administration’s unwillingness to do anything about it.
“You can’t just hear about what’s happening. You have to come down here to see for yourself to really understand the devastating reality at our southern border,” Boebert said.
“So I brought Kamala down to see exactly what this regime is responsible for with their man-made crisis.”
“Illegal aliens crossing the border, that’s up. Sex offenders crossing the border, that’s up. Drug trafficking, gun smuggling, human smuggling, that’s up,” she said.

Boebert blasted Harris for not helping Americans, saying, “You know what’s not up at the southern border? Respect for law and order, funding for our Border Patrol. And where is the media to cover this crisis?”
The congresswoman added, “More than 70 days ago, Biden named cackling Kamala as border czar but she hasn’t done a single thing to protect the American people.”
The video comes as Harris has come under increased attack as President Joe Biden’s immigration response leader. However, the vice president has yet to visit the border or make plans to do so.
Harris continues to dodge the border, while hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants cross into the nation. The contrast continues to reveal the Biden administration’s lack of concern to secure the border and protect Americans.
What’s it going to take to get Harris to the border or to at least enact a single policy that slows the flow of illegal immigration?
Harris’ trip to Guatemala to tell potential travelers, “Do not come,” was a total bust. She was greeted on the tarmac by protesters who told her to “mind her business” and “Kamala Go Home” instead of supporters.
Even Guatemala’s president acknowledged the difference in the handling of the border crisis between the Trump administration and the Biden administration. He told an interviewer after Joe and Kamala’s inauguration in January “The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.”
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox News this week the border could be secured in a day if the Biden administration would reinstate the Remain in Mexico policy and end catch and release.
He’s right. It’s not that complicated. If Biden wanted to close the border, he could. It seems to work just fine between the U.S. and Canada, as the nation’s northern neighbor continues to lock down due to COVID-19 concerns.
America also has the power to secure the border. With the world’s largest military force, it wouldn’t take too many National Guard members to support the nation’s Border Patrol to make it happen. The plan sure seemed to work in D.C. for the inauguration.
Plus, what if there was a way to construct some kind of barrier along the southern border that would keep most people out without permission? Sounds like a good plan, doesn’t it? Oh, wait, Trump already did that. He called it a border wall.
Biden cancelled it on his first day in office.
Rep. Lauren Boebert highlighted the hypocrisy of the left. If she could only get Democrats to do something about it, Americans would do more than laugh—they would cheer over a new sense of security along the nation’s border.
