“Disconnected From Reality or She’s Blatantly Lying”: Tulsi Gabbard Blasts Kamala Harris

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1957: U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower orders troops to support the integration of nine black students at Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) rebuked Vice President Kamala Harris for claiming that the U.S.-Mexico border is secure.

“Kamala Harris’ statement that ‘we have a secure border’ is further evidence that she’s either completely disconnected from reality or she’s blatantly lying,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter.

“Either way, she has no business being a heartbeat away from the presidency,” added Gabbard, who was a Democratic presidential nominee in 2020.

VP Harris raised eyebrows when she declared that “the border is secure” during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

“The border is secure,” Harris told Chuck Todd.

“We’re going to have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever,” Todd responded. “You’re confident this border’s secure?”

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris said. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

Migrants File Class-Action Lawsuit Against Ron DeSantis

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) by a group of migrants who were transported from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard last week.

The suit alleges that the move was “cruelty akin to what they fled in their home country” of Venezuela.

The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Massachusetts, also names the state’s transportation secretary as a defendant.

“Defendants manipulated them, stripped them of their dignity, deprived them of their liberty, bodily autonomy, due process and equal protection under law, and impermissibly interfered with the Federal Government’s exclusive control over immigration in furtherance of an unlawful goal and a personal political agenda,” the suit reads.

However, DeSantis’s camp says that the relocations were “voluntary.” The governor’s office provided a copy of consent forms allegedly signed by the migrants, with “Massachusetts” listed as the final destination.

“The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned – and these activists didn’t care about them then,” said Taryn Feske, DeSantis’s communications director.

“Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts. It was disappointing that Martha’s Vineyard called in the Massachusetts National Guard to bus them away from the island within 48 hours.”

Leftists Freak Out After DeSantis Sends Migrants to Martha’s Vineyard

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) sent two planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, earlier this week, and leftists are apoplectic.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decried the move, saying it was “literally human trafficking.”

“Some politicians would rather not only have an issue but exacerbate it to the extent of literally human trafficking,” Clinton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

DeSantis sent two planes full of migrants from Texas on Wednesday to Martha’s Vineyard. The move echoes Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX), who has bused migrants to Washington, D.C., New York, and Chicago this year.

“These are real people we’re playing with. These are real live people with children and older people,” said Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of “The View.” “We can work it out, but if you’re going to be a bonehead, who wants to play with you? Call me crazy, but I don’t understand why you gotta be nasty about it.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the move is “an illegal stunt.”

“What they are doing is an illegal stunt, is a political stunt. And it’s really just disrespectful to humanity. It doesn’t afford them any dignity, what they’re doing when you are abandoning families and children in a place where they were told they were going to get housing,” Jean-Pierre told reporters on Thursday. “It is just cruel, and it’s not about the process. Actually, It’s about a political tool or political stunt that they’re moving forward with.”

DeSantis hit back at the criticism, pointing out that the Biden administration secretly flew migrants around the country.

“Biden would fly people in the middle of the night, dump them all across this country. There was no warning on any of this,” DeSantis said, adding that the administration is “farming people out all around.”

“All of those people in D.C. and New York were beating their chests when Trump was president, saying they were so proud to be sanctuary jurisdictions, saying how bad it was to have a secure border,” he said.

“The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they all of a sudden go berserk, and they’re so upset that this is happening. It just shows you their virtue-signaling is a fraud.”

Texas Governor Buses Migrants to Kamala Harris’s House

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) sent two busloads of migrants to a bus stop outside Vice President Kamala Harris’s residence.

Abbott approved the move after Harris asserted that the U.S.-Mexico border is “secure” in a recent interview. The Texas governor apparently took exception to the VP’s claim and brought the problem she’s ignoring to her front door.

“The Biden-Harris Administration continues ignoring and denying the historic crisis at our southern border, which has endangered and overwhelmed Texas communities for almost two years,” Abbott said in a statement.

“Our supposed Border Czar, Vice President Kamala Harris, has yet to even visit the border to see firsthand the impact of the open border policies she has helped implement, even going so far as to claim the border is ‘secure,’” he added. “Texas will continue sending migrants to sanctuary cities like Washington, D.C. until President Biden and Border Czar Harris step up and do their jobs to secure the border.”

Harris insisted to NBC’s “Meet the Press” this week that “the border is secure.” Host Chuck Todd pressed Harris, pointing out that 2 million people will cross the U.S. border for the first time this year.

The VP reiterated that the border is “secure” and emphasized that many of the problems stem from the Trump administration.

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours, and our administration,” Harris said. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

Texas Governor Orders National Guard to Return Illegal Immigrants to Border

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1778: American Revolution – Louis XVI of France declares war on the Kingdom of Great Britain.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) directed the Lone Star state’s National Guard and Department of Public Safety to “return illegal immigrants to the border.”

“I issued an Executive Order authorizing the Texas National Guard & Texas Dept. of Public Safety to return illegal immigrants to the border,” Abbott said.

“Cartels have become emboldened by Biden’s open border policies. Texas is taking unprecedented action to STOP this criminal enterprise.”

In a press release, Abbott cited the Biden administration’s decision to end Title 42 expulsions and “the Remain in-Mexico policy.”

“While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border,” Abbott said in a statement.

“The cartels have become emboldened and enriched by President Biden’s open border policies, smuggling in record numbers of people, weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl.”

Texas Governor Blames Deadly Incident on Biden

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) blamed President Joe Biden and his immigration policies after at least 46 individuals were found dead in an 18-wheeler in San Antonio.

“These deaths are on Biden,” Abbott tweeted. “They are a result of his open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law.”

Abbott wasn’t the only Texas lawmaker to blame Biden’s immigration policies for the tragic deaths.

“Horrific,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote on Twitter.

“How many more people have to die before Dems give a damn?” he asked, adding the hashtag “BidenBorderCrisis.”

However, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre pushed back against the accusation.

“The fact of the matter is, the border is closed, which is in part why you see people trying to make this dangerous journey using smuggling networks,” Jean-Pierre told reporters.

“Our hearts go out to the families at this time. We are going to stay focused on the facts and making sure we hold these smugglers accountable.”

Ted Cruz: There Are ‘Multiple Grounds’ to Impeach Biden If GOP Wins House in 2022

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said there are “multiple grounds” to impeach President Joe Biden if the GOP flips the House in the 2022 midterm elections.

“If we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration,” Cruz said during a recent episode of his podcast Verdict with Ted Cruz.

When asked about the prospect of impeaching Biden, Cruz said, “I do think there’s a chance of that.”

“Whether it’s justified or not, Democrats weaponized impeachment.”

“They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him. One of the real disadvantages of doing that is, the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel​, you know, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” Cruz added.

Cruz said Biden’s “utter lawlessness” with the ongoing border crisis and decision to “defy immigration laws” would be one potential reason to begin impeachment proceedings.

The 51-year-old senator said Republicans have a 90% chance of regaining the House.

“What’s interesting is, in Washington, everybody assumes Republicans are ​going to win,” Cruz said. “I think all the Democrats assume we’re ​going to take the House​. I​t’s almost baked into the cake of how everyone handles decision-making.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded to Cruz’s remarks on Tuesday.

“Maybe Senator Cruz can work with us on getting something done on comprehensive immigration reform and putting in place measures that will help make sure smart security is what we see at the border, taking a more humane approach to the border instead of name calling, accusation-calling and making predictions of the future,” Psaki said.

Texas migrant numbers ‘out of control’

In Del Rio, Texas, the number of migrants waiting under the International Bridge doubled to over 8,000 in a single day. Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the “out of control” situation, sources confirm.

Video footage shows the staggering number of people waiting under the bridge. On Wednesday, the number totaled around 4,000, but it spiked to over 8,200 by Thursday morning.

According to law enforcement, the majority of the migrants are Haitian, and more are arriving by the minute.

The situation marks the latest in a series of border pandemonium during the Biden administration. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said over 208,000 migrant encounters occurred in August, marking a 317% increase from August 2020.

The White House previously assigned blame to the Trump administration for limiting legal pathways to asylum. Meanwhile, the GOP blames the Biden administration’s rollback of Trump-era immigration policies.

Desperately seeking Kamala: the absentee VP

Vice President Kamala Harris has been conspicuous by her absence lately, as President Biden faces mounting pressure over the botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the ongoing border crisis.

“If I’m Kamala Harris right now, I’m extremely offended because you have been used,” co-host of “The Five,” Will Cain, said. “They used you to pander to a voting base to get votes. They had a minority, they had a woman, and now that they don’t need her, they have shelved her because her approval rating is -19.”

The VP has not been easy to find. She took recent trips to Vietnam and Singapore amid the chaos in Afghanistan. Then, she appeared in Hawaii to visit Pearl Harbor. Press was barred from the event.

Some speculate that Harris is being kept out of sight by design. Her recent poll numbers show a 35% approval and a 54% disapproval, atypical for a VP this early in the administration’s run.

Harris has a hard time finding support, even among her supporters.

“I’d vote for her. But I don’t think she can win. And I wouldn’t vote for her in a primary,” Pennsylvania retiree Susan Giffen told the Los Angeles Times.
