Arizona AG urges Biden to remove Kamala Harris as ‘Border Czar’
Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote a scathing letter to President Biden urging him to replace Kamala Harris as the ‘Border Czar.”
“Her response to the border crisis has been absolutely abysmal, so I am requesting that she be replaced,” Brnovich wrote.
“We are now nearly 50 days into her appointment, and Vice President Harris has shown little interest in observing what is happening along the southern border and has failed to articulate any plan to deal with the devastating effects of this crisis,” he continued.
Brnovich pointed to the 178,600 apprehensions at the border in April rising three percent from March as evidence of the worsening situation.
“The latest apprehension numbers from April show that things are getting worse, and we do not yet know the full extent of dangerous people and drugs crossing into our communities.”
“Mr. President, we can not afford another day, week, or month of apathy and inaction by any official in your administration charged with upholding federal immigration laws and ensuring public safety,” Brnovich writes.
“I conclude by respectfully requesting that Vice President Harris be replaced as “border czar” with a federal official who is willing to see the crisis first hand and is willing to work with state partners to address it,” he says.
Brnovich said he invited Harris to visit the southern border in April and never received a response.
“Recently, you stated, ‘You have to see and smell and feel the circumstances of people to really understand them.’ With that in mind, I formally invite you to join me for a tour of the southwest border in Arizona later this month,” Brnovich wrote in a letter to Harris on April 2.
