Vice President Kamala Harris tried to avoid responsibility for the ongoing border crisis by attempting to blame it on so-called “global warming.”
“When you look at the root causes, we’re also looking at the issues of corruption,” Harris claimed. “Again, we’re looking at the issue of climate resiliency and then the concern about a lack of economic opportunity.”
Is Joe Biden ever going to visit the border?
His border crisis has been raging for months, but his administration is more focused on denying a crisis exists than in actually solving the problem.

Harris is advancing her plan to give $84 billion of U.S. taxpayer money to Central American countries, which she has claimed would end mass migration into the U.S. According to reports, she also alleged that so-called global warming fueled economic migration into the U.S, which overlooked centuries of poverty in Central America.
“We are looking at extensive storm damage because of extreme climate,” Harris said. “We’re looking at drought in an area in a region where agriculture is one of the most traditionally important bases for their economy.”

Harris has faced criticism for failing to personally inspect the U.S.-Mexico border as well as failing to condemn the human smuggling and cartel activity in the area.
