Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to the US-Mexico border on Friday, according to a Washington Post report on Wednesday.
Harris will visit the border with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, two sources familiar with the trip told The Post. The trip has not yet been made public.
Harris’ upcoming visit comes as Republicans continue to attack the Biden administration over its handling of the rise in migrants at the southern border.
President Joe Biden tapped Harris in March as the administration’s point-person on immigration affairs while the border saw a rapid uptick in migrants. Since then, Republicans have repeatedly attacked Harris for not personally taking a trip to the southern border.
Harris earlier this month traveled to Mexico and Guatemala, where she met with top officials to discuss the underlying causes of migration. The Biden administration has warned prospective migrants not to travel to the US-Mexico border.
