Arizona AG: Biden must remove VP Harris as his border czar

Reprinted from Sara Carter's news page.


Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is calling on President Biden to remove Vice President Harris as the border czar in a letter he sent Wednesday. His announcement comes one day after U.S. Customs and Border Protection published the data on immigration for this April.

Brnovich demands that someone else take Harris’ place because of her “little interest in observing what is happening on the border.” Since being put in this position, Harris has yet to hold any press conferences on the matter. Even Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas made a visit to the border, held a press conference, and spoken in hearings within these first 100 some odd days of the Biden administration. Harris, on the other hand, “has failed to articulate any plan” Brnovich writes.

Harris received an invite to visit the Arizona Mexico border, from Brnovich himself on April 2nd. But, he says he never even received a response to the invitation. Instead, Harris plans on visiting Mexico in June.

The attorney general drew attention to how law enforcement is understaffed and overwhelmed. “It is shameful that they are not receiving more federal support,” Brnovich wrote. “Mr. President, we cannot afford another day, week, or month of apathy and inaction by any official in your administration charged with upholding our federal immigration laws an ensuring public safety.”

Brnovich suggested that Biden replace Harris with another federal official who will see the border crisis “firsthand” and is willing to work with state partners.
