[Ed. – Is she finally going because they told her she could go to Europe afterwards?]
Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday after declining to go for months, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced Wednesday.
Politico first reported the trip Wednesday afternoon, roughly an hour before the White House confirmed the border visit. Harris will visit the border Friday in El Paso, Texas, alongside Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Harris’ trip will come 93 days after President Joe Biden appointed her to lead the administration’s response to the ongoing immigration crisis.
Harris’ trip also comes just before former President Donald Trump’s own visit to the border, which is expected the following week. House Republicans have already announced plans to join Trump at the rally, where he is expected to criticize Biden’s immigration policies. Immigration has continued to be Biden’s least successful policy area, with polls showing large majorities of Americans preferring Trump’s border policies.
