My colleague Nick Arama reported earlier on a recent interview Vice President Kamala Harris did with NBC News anchor Lester Holt where she made some pretty callous comments about the border crisis that outraged those who are fed up with non-answers the Biden administration has given over the last few months when asked when she’s going to visit the border.

“We’ve seen in the 5 months they’ve been in office an absolute disaster unfolding at the border,” he noted. “In that entire interview [that she did with Holt] what you don’t hear is any willingness to fix the problem. They can
