VP Kamala Harris laughed strangely when asked Monday if she would be visiting the border during the surge in illegals entering the nation.
“Not today!” the VP responded at the Jacksonville International Airport, before laughing in response to the question. “But I have before and I am sure I will again.”
“Do you have plans to visit the border?”
VP HARRIS: “Not today” *laughs*

The recent spike at the border has caused a record-level of illegals entering the nation, causing the first crisis for Biden since he entered the White House.
The Biden administration will be sending people to Central America and Mexico to deal with the surge, NBC News claimed on Monday. But their response has been slammed with criticism from both Democrats and Republicans, who gave a bipartisan demand for action.
GOP Texas Senator John Cornyn and Democratic Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, whose states are being harmed by the crisis, demanded that the administration find a solution.
“Your team should take prompt action in two areas: guaranteeing there are resources at the border to manage the problem and taking real steps to speed the asylum process. Both of these are crucial to improving how we deal with the situation,” Sinema and Cornyn wrote in a letter to Biden.
GOP Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert said in a tweet on Monday that the border is a crisis while hitting back against President Biden’s inaction.
The White House just called a lid at 1:13pm today. Biden is back in the basement, figuratively at least.
Meanwhile, the country is in chaos and the border is coming apart at the seams.
