Dems block GOP effort to stop Harris’ taxpayer funded travel until she visits southern border

House Democrats blocked an effort to prevent VP Harris from using taxpayer funds to travel until she visit the southern border.

Speaking on the House floor Rep. Ashley Hinson said her bill would stop Harris “from using taxpayer dollars to travel internationally before seeing the southern border crisis firsthand.”

Hinson also argued “Vice President Harris needs to see the crisis for herself and take action. And that is exactly what my See the Crisis Act will force her to do. This bill will prevent the vice president from traveling internationally on the taxpayers’ dime until she visits the southern border and reports back to the American people on how the administration will secure our border. So I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle tonight to join me in defeating the previous question and holding the administration accountable for the border crisis.”
