According to a new report from Newsmax “When President Joe Biden announced back in March that he was assigning Vice President Kamala Harris with the task of taking charge of immigration from Central America, her aides appeared to “panic,” according to a White House official, CNN reported on Tuesday.”
“This would increase the possibility that it could be politically damaging to Harris if she was connected to any failure at the southern border, where there has been a surge of illegal immigrants arriving, including a record number of unaccompanied children crossing into the U.S.”
“The panic was caused by concern that her assignment, which was to focus on conditions in Central America that push migrants to the US southern border and diplomatic efforts to mitigate those, was being intentionally misconstrued, according to the official,” the report adds.
The report claims “The official said the concern and dismay of the vice president’s aides increased when Republican critics and the media portrayed her new role as a border assignment and immigration czar, opening her up to criticism for the handling of the problem.”

According to the proposed 2020 budget, from the Biden White House, the Biden admin plans to direct $861 Million to Central American Countries in an effort to stem illegal migration to the U.S.
VP Harris tweeted last week “Addressing the root causes of migration from the Northern Triangle requires sustained economic growth and investment. The private sector has an important role to play. Today, I met with the leaders of companies and organizations that announced commitments to invest in the region.”
