Arizona governor slams VP Kamala Harris as ‘worst possible choice’ for handling border crisis

‘Joe Biden has broken our border’

President Joe Biden tapped Vice President Kamala Harris to head the administration’s efforts to resolve the current border crisis. Biden said of Harris on Tuesday, “I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this.”

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey vehemently disagrees that Harris is the right person to handle the immigration crisis and went so far as to declare the vice president to be the “worst possible choice” for remedying the massive migrant surge at the U.S. southern border.

During a news conference Wednesday, Ducey weighed in on Harris being assigned to tackle the border crisis.

“She’s about the worst possible choice that one could make,” Ducey told reporters. “In no point in her career has she given any indication that she considers the border a problem or a serious threat.”

“If President Biden’s intent was to show that he’s taking this issue seriously, he’s really done the exact opposite,” the Republican governor stated, adding that President Biden had “completely trivialized the issue by putting someone in charge who flat out just doesn’t care.”

Harris admitted Wednesday that the border situation is a “huge problem.”

“I’m not going to pretend it’s not. It’s a huge problem,” Harris told CBS News. “Are we looking at overcrowding at the border in particular of these kids? Yes.”

Harris received condemnation earlier this week for appearing to laugh off a question about whether she will be visiting the border. “Not today,” Harris joked before laughing. “But I have before, and I’m sure I will again.”
