House Minority Whip Steve Scalise argued Wednesday that Vice President Kamala Harris has been missing in action with regard to the U.S.-Mexico border.
Nearly three weeks after Harris was tapped by President Joe Biden to take control of the situation at the border, Scalise and many others have noted that she has yet to make a single trip to the area.
At Wednesday’s press conference, Scalise said that the crisis at the border had been created by the Biden administration as it rolled back numerous policies — implemented by former President Donald Trump — that he said had been working to minimize the flow of illegal immigration.

But Scalise also brought a prop with him — a milk carton featuring a photo of the vice president and the words: “Missing at the border.”

Harris announced Wednesday that she would be traveling to Mexico and Guatemala in the coming days in an effort to get to the “root cause” of the large groups of migrants heading toward the U.S.-Mexico border.
