After Historic Border Surge Strikes In July – Republicans Call For VP Harris To Be Removed From Role

During his time in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump made the southern border a top priority. And many authorities say his actions helped stem the surging tides in recent years.

But when Joe Biden took over, the surges began again immediately. Biden tapped Vice President Harris to take charge of the worsening situation, but the numbers don’t appear to have improved.

And Republican leaders have had enough.

VP Harris has supposedly been tackling the border crisis since March. She once visited with the President of Mexico, but the American public hasn’t received many other updates.

And a new report from the Associated Press indicates some concerning statistics.

According to the report, the U.S. is now seeing a historic surge of unaccompanied minors and families. In fact, July might’ve hit an all-time high with the exception of May 2019.

From Fox News:

…authorities in the U.S. likely picked up more unaccompanied minors at the border than ever before in July.

The number of people who traveled in families also likely hit its second-highest number ever in the month.

Assistant secretary for border and immigration policy David Shahoulian said border authorities “likely” picked up over 19,000 unaccompanied children in July.

On top of that, the number of individuals encountered in families possibly hit about 80,000. That would be just shy of the worst number we’ve seen from May 2019, which was 88,857.

Now, GOP leaders like former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley say America needs a change:

She has failed to secure the border and has emboldened cartels. We need real leadership.

She isn’t the first Republican to call for Harris to be removed from her role.

And as the numbers continue to spiral, it’s possible that more politicos and migration experts will demand answers. They say either Harris needs to deliver results, or she should step down.

The overall encounter statistic keeps rising, too.

In June, it was 188,829. In July, it jumped to over 210,000. At the same time, many U.S. residents are worried because they’re seeing very little response from the Biden administration.

With the pandemic surge, the administration did attempt to clamp down at the border due to health concerns.

But as the new infrastructure bill includes zero funding for any walls or barriers (and plenty to update migrant facilities), it feels to some like Biden isn’t trying to stop the oncoming surges at all.

Instead, it almost seems like POTUS is encouraging them.

Either way, if the numbers don’t start coming down at some point, Vice President Harris will continue to face plenty of questions, and plenty of pressure.
