Kamala Harris isn’t at the southern border — but migrant kids are getting Veep’s book – Fox News

2 min read

Vice President Kamala Harris hasn’t been to the border to address a crisis she was tasked to help fix — but a children’s book she wrote is waiting there for young migrants who are being welcomed into the country.

Unaccompanied migrant kids brought from the U.S.-Mexico border to a new shelter in Long Beach, Calif., will be given a copy of her 2019 children’s book, “Superheroes are Everywhere,” in their welcome kits.

It’s just the latest open-arms gesture by the Biden administration, whose mixed messaging regarding the border and immigration has been credited with the surge from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Border czar Roberta Jacobson last month conceded that the Biden administration’s messaging to migrants has been inconsistent, contributing to the unprecedented surge.

“Whenever there’s trouble, superheroes show up just in time,” Harris tells kids in the book, shown sitting on a cot with more basic supplies at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, newly-converted to deal with the spiraling illegal immigration influx.

In the 30 days since President Biden asked Harris to lead the US response to the record surge in migrants, she has yet to visit the border or hold a press conference on the matter.

The administration has emphasized that she is addressing only the “root causes” that lead people to flee Central America, not the surge itself.

On Friday Harris was in New Hampshire to promote her boss’s $2 trillion infrastructure proposal — and was greeted by protesters who urged her to visit the U.S.-Mexico border instead.
