Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Harris Arrives in El Paso, Texas to Visit U.S.-Mexico Border” – below is their description.
Vice President Kamala Harris said she had long planned to visit the U.S. border with Mexico as part of her assignment to curb a surge in migration, as she arrived Friday to tour a U.S. Customs and Border Protection station in El Paso, Texas.
“I said in March I was going to come to the border. This is not a new plan,” Harris said at the city’s airport after her plane touched down.
The trip comes after Harris has faced months of denunciations from Republicans — as well as frustration from some Democrats — for not having gone to the border sooner.
Earlier this month, Harris traveled to Guatemala and Mexico to discuss joint strategies with their leaders to slow the pace of migration from Central America. She has said that the success of her assignment depends primarily on addressing the economic and social causes of migration, not a visit to the southwest border that she dismissed in one interview as a “grand gesture.”Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
