Kamala Harris Gets Testy When Hispanic Interviewer Pushes Her on Border Crisis: 'I'm Not Finished'

Western Journal

Vice President Kamala Harris, who found questions about America’s southern border a laughing matter during her recent trip to Mexico and Guatemala, found nothing to laugh at when pressed in a recent interview about when she will visit the border.

Harris rebuked Univision anchor Ilia Calderón during a recent interview when Calderón pressed for an answer Harris did not want to give.

In March, President Joe Biden deputized Harris to be his point person on what Biden has termed the cause of all ills at the border, which he claims are the economic and political conditions in the Central American nations from which many migrants who cross America’s border illegally flee.

Since then, Harris has been repeatedly asked when she will actually visit the border to see the crisis in person.

Calderón raised the question again in the interview that aired Thursday.



“I’ve said I’m going to go to the border,” Harris told the anchor. “And I …”

“When are you going to the border, Vice President?” Calderón asked.

The question appeared to be delayed in getting to Harris during the remote interview, and was not welcome when it arrived.

“I’m not finished,” Harris said, trying to paper over her clear irritation with a forced chuckle.

“I’ve said I’m going to the border. And also if we are going to deal with the problems at the border, we have to deal with the problems that cause people to go to the border, to flee to the border.

“And that is the root causes. So my first trip as vice president of the United States was to go — in terms of a foreign trip — to Guatemala, to be on the ground there, to address and to be informed of the root causes: Why are the people of Guatemala leaving,” she said.

“Do you have a date for your trip to the border?” Calderón said.

“I will keep you posted,” Harris said.

The interview was the second time Harris drew Twitter’s scorn for the way she handled a question about the border.

In an interview with Lester Holt of NBC, Harris tried to belittle the importance of a vice-presidential visit.

“At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border,” Harris said. “So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”

“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt said.

“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris said with a forced laugh. “I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
