GOP Rep Introduces Bill to Cut Kamala’s Travel Funding Until She Visits Border


Republican Rep. Ashley Hinson of Iowa introduced a bill Thursday to block Vice President Kamala Harris from using taxpayer money to fund her travel expenses until Harris addresses the current immigration crisis at the southern border by going there and issuing a report.

“We have an absolute crisis at the border, and Vice President Harris was appointed to lead the administration’s efforts on the border crisis, but it’s been 56 days, and in that time she hasn’t been to the border once,” Hinson told Fox News on Wednesday.

“She hasn’t held a news conference on the administration’s efforts for a plan, and I think it’s time she does that.”

“It’s unacceptable that after nearly two months as the Administration’s so-called point person on the border crisis, Vice President Kamala Harris still hasn’t visited the Southern Border and heard directly from the brave law enforcement officers about what they are facing on the ground,” Hinson said in a news release. “As illegal immigration has surged, cartels are emboldened, and record levels of fentanyl are pouring into our country, this crisis continues to be out of sight and out of mind for this Administration.

“This bill will stop Vice President Harris from traveling internationally on the taxpayers’ dime until she visits the Southern Border and reports to the American people on the steps the Administration is taking to address this crisis.”

The U.S.-Mexico border is seeing an unprecedented surge in illegal aliens trying to make their way across from Mexico into the United States.

Countless people, including Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, have criticized the Biden-Harris administration for aggravating the situation through its action and inaction.
