Where was the vice president?

President Biden visited the southern border in Brownsville, Texas, on Thursday, where he was joined by a number of senior administration officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, as well as Vice President Kamala Harris. He wasn’t among them.

Biden spoke in Brownsville After meeting with Border Patrol, law enforcement and local leaders. He urged Republicans to support the bipartisan Senate bill that he believes will help solve the escalating crisis at the southern border.

“It’s very simple. It’s time to act. It’s long past time to act,” the president said. “The time has come to tackle this. We can’t wait any longer.”

But the vice president, who was tasked with leading diplomatic efforts to tackle the “root causes” of migration in 2021, was nowhere to be seen.

A year ago, Ms. Harris announced an additional $950 million in contributions in response to the call to action, bringing the total to more than $4.2 billion since May 2021. But since then, Harris’ public role appears to have continued to shrink, even in the midst of a historic year. As for illegal immigration, more than 2.4 million immigrants were encountered in fiscal 2023. The number of cases in 2014 was similarly overwhelming, with more than 300,000 people encountered in December.
