Kamala blasted for going to DMZ instead of US Southern border, makes matters worse with gaffe

Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday provoked anger when she visited the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates North Korea from South Korea.

Members of the right, including congressional Republicans, wondered why she had time to visit the DMZ but no time to visit the southern U.S. border.

“I’m not saying the Korean Peninsula is not important, but I would say that our own border is really much more important right now. And that’s a real crisis that we have,” one such disgruntled Republican, Rep. Andy Biggs, said to the Daily Mail.

His frustration was shared by a bevy of other figures on the right:

The VP has only been to the southern border once. In July of 2021, she flew to El Paso and surveyed the scene there for a couple hours max. Then she left.

“Going back to the border [for Harris] would be sitting in a restaurant in El Paso,” Biggs quipped, regarding the VP’s quick trip to the border last year.

He added that he’s personally invited several Democrats, including White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, to visit the border with him, but they’ve refused.

This despite the southern border being overrun by millions of illegal aliens streaming into the United States over the course of a year.

Similarly, certain spots get hit with hundreds of illegals per DAY:

Despite being put in charge of handling the border crisis nearly two years ago, Harris has done virtually nothing to stem the tide of illegals flowing across the border.

The problem is that instead of trying to secure the border, which would be the common-sense solution to the crisis, she and the Biden administration have focused on addressing the alleged “root causes” of illegal migration.

But not surprisingly, this tactic — one that’s the complete opposite of how the Trump administration had stopped the flow of illegals — hasn’t worked. Not even slightly.

Dovetailing back to the VP’s visit to the DMZ, she even managed to screw this up.

“Vice President Kamala Harris made an unfortunate gaffe during her speech at the Korean Peninsula’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on Thursday, saying that the United States has a ‘strong alliance’ with ‘the Republic of North Korea,'” according to Fox News.

America’s alliance is, of course, with South Korea, not the brutal dictatorship of North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un.

The VP continued her remarks by vowing that the Biden administration is “committed” to defending South Korea from North Korea’s aggression.

“I cannot state enough that the commitment of the United States to the defense of the Republic of Korea is iron-clad and that we will do everything in our power to ensure that it has meaning in every way that the words suggest,” she said.

“Over the past seven decades, it has been clear. In the south, we see a thriving democracy. Innovation, economic prosperity and strength. A powerhouse, dare I say, on many of these issues and a force for good in the world. In the north, we see a brutal dictatorship, rampant human rights violations, and an unlawful weapons program that threatens peace and stability.”

Critics wonder why the administration isn’t as “committed” to stop illegal aliens from overrunning its own southern border …
