President Biden Asked VP Harris To Take The "Lead" On Migrant Crisis

|

President Biden announced Wednesday that he has asked Vice President Kamala Harris "to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries that are going to need help in stemming" the flow of refugees and the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Biden blamed the Trump administration for the situation, saying: "This new surge we are dealing with now started in the past administration but it is our responsibility."

"I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this,” Biden said about Harris, the former attorney general of California.


Biden said he told Harris she would always be "the last person in the room, but that means she gets every assignment."
