FRANKLIN, Tennessee — Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told Breitbart News that Vice President Kamala Harris’s trip to the border last week was “93 days late,” and even though she finally went there, “she went to the wrong address.”
Blackburn’s comments came during an exclusive long-form interview last week at Puckett’s — a grocery store, restaurant, and live-music venue at which many of Nashville’s legendary country music artists have performed — as part of Breitbart News’s On The Hill video series. Blackburn lit into Harris for dodging going to the border for months after President Joe Biden appointed her to lead his administration’s response to the border crisis. When Harris did finally go, she chose El Paso instead of the Rio Grande Valley to visit because of the lesser migrant traffic flowing through that region.
“She’s 93 days late, and she went to the wrong address when she did this,” Blackburn said when asked about Harris finally visiting the border. “Why not go to the Rio Grande, which has twice as many illegal entrants as El Paso? Why not go out on the border, not just to the facility? Why not go out on the border and see where the wall has stopped — look at the traffic coming across the border. Find out what the cartels are doing. Go out with some of these local law enforcement or some of the Border Patrol and see what they’re having to deal with every day. That’s how you get your arms around this issue.” Read the rest at bereitbart.com.
