Kamala Harris Says ‘We Can’t Just Flip A Switch And Make It Better’ When Pressed On Border

Vice President Kamala Harris defended the Biden administration’s handling of the southern border, telling George Stephanopoulos it is impossible to “flip a switch” and fix the situation.

“It’s not going to be overnight. We can’t just flip a switch and make it better. The reality is that we inherited a system, an immigration system that was deeply broken,” Harris said while appearing on “Good Morning America” on Thursday. “It’s requiring us to actually put it back together in terms of creating a fair process that is effective and efficient.”

Immigration officials encountered over 1.7 million migrants at the southern border in the fiscal year 2021 when Border Patrol agents made a record number of arrests. A number of migrants who spoke to the Daily Caller in October thankedPresident Joe Biden for his immigration policies.

Stephanopoulos also asked the vice president if she ever feels “misused or underused,” following a CNN report published Sunday alleging that Harris and her staff have frustrated the White House with their office’s dysfunction.

“No,” Harris replied. “I don’t. I’m very, very excited about the work that we have accomplished. But I am also absolutely, absolutely clear-eyed that there is a lot more to do, and we’re gonna get it done.”

“This was a good week, and this week, when we got this Bipartisan Infrastructure Act passed and signed by the president, makes a statement about all of the hard work that has gone into it, month after month after month,” Harris added. “We’re getting things done, and we’re doing it together.”

  1. C’mon Kamala, Get off your dead xss and show some leadership. Lead the charge to impeach the idiot. Restore insulin prices to 20 dollars. REOPEN the pipe lines. CLOSE the borders back down. You could still become one of America’s great leaders providing you don’t shxx your pants in public like poopy pants Joe. Really Kamala, get rid of that stupid SOB.

  2. But they have no problem flipping switches to make things worse. The former admin had this problem in check and the new admin pressed HALT, REVERSE. Obviously now by design.

  3. It is clear Harris does not know how to do anything or if she does know how she does not want to. The Biden Admin and the Dems wants open borders. It is clear that Trump had the problem under control. Biden and the Dems plan to let anyone in, give them amnesty, and a big paycheck. Harris is just cackling to the Dems fawning media but they will not change anything.

  4. How stupid is that photo!? Apart from the giggling and doing absolutely nil what annoys me about her is her snort – her whiny snort she talks like she’s on the verge of tears that whiny, nasally, whiny, whiny snort.

  5. There are millions of US citizens out there who know how to “flip a switch” to help solve the immigration problem. So why is Kamala, an alleged intelligent lawyer,” so ignorant as to what to do? Simply follow the example of the previous administration and it’s problem solved (you idiot).
