Vice President Kamala Harris was met by protesters in El Paso, Texas, upon arriving for her first trip to the southern border since President Biden tapped her to address the “root causes” of the ongoing crisis.
Harris was met with protesters waving flags and holding signs supporting former President Trump as well as blasting “Que Mala” — a Spanish phrase meaning “how mean” — for making a “wrong turn” and informing the vice president that El Paso “isn’t Europe.” “Kamala, you came a little too late. We have had this crisis for years,” Republican congressional candidate Irene Armendariz-Jackson said in an El American video report. “We need solutions, we don’t need you parading around the border patrol station or acting like you care.” “Americans matter, America matters,” she added.

One border agent who spoke on condition of anonymity said he was “not surprised” that it took Harris so long. “I’m not surprised. She doesn’t think this is a problem,” the agent said. A senior border official who spoke on condition of anonymity was critical of Harris for visiting El Paso instead of harder-hit areas.
“If Vice President Harris truly wanted to assess the situation at the border, she’d head to McAllen and sites along the Rio Grande Valley,” that official said. “It will be worth seeing if this trip extends beyond a rubber stamp of ‘I visited the border.’” The office of The Vice President has declined to comment on the protestors at El Paso.
