Rep. Jackson Reintroduces Resolution to Remove VP Harris as Border Czar
Washington, March 24, 2023
WASHINGTON — Today, Representative Ronny Jackson (TX-13) reintroduced a resolution calling on President Biden to remove Vice President Kamala Harris from her role as Border Czar. The resolution demands that a competent leader be appointed who will prioritize the safety of Americans, acknowledge that border security is national security, ensure Customs and Border Protection (CBP) receives the resources needed to execute their job effectively, and stop the flood of fentanyl pouring across our border.
Jackson's resolution comes on the two-year anniversary of Harris' appointment to the position of Border Czar. Jackson has made multiple visits to the border during this period while Harris has visited only once.
Jackson told Henry Rodgers of The Daily Caller: "Kamala Harris has done nothing to ‘address the root cause of migration’ or stop the influx of illegal immigrants coming across our border daily. She continues to sit by as the number of illegal immigrants coming across our border skyrockets, fentanyl deaths explode, and CBP officers are left to fend for themselves. She has completely betrayed the American people by blatantly disregarding her duties as Border Czar. Enough is enough! President Biden must remove Kamala Harris and replace her with someone who will put Americans first and stop the crisis at our southern border. Politics should never compromise our national security. We need change now!"
