Rep. Ashley Hinson Pushes Bill That Will Pressure Kamala Harris

After Kamala Harris’ embarrassing trip to Guatemala, Iowa Republican Rep. Ashley Hinson recently spoke on the House floor, calling for a bill that will forbid the vice president from travelling overseas and force her to prioritize visits to the Mexico-U.S. border.

“This crisis is worsening by the day. Yet, the vice president has refused to go to the border herself and talk to the brave law enforcement officers, the men and women who are fighting this on the frontlines. This out-of-sight, out-of-mind approach is a disgrace,” Hinson told fellow representatives.

“She’s been to yarn shops, she’s been to bakeries, and she just flew right over the crisis at our southern border to meet with foreign countries with the taxpayer’s checkbook in hand. When asked why she hasn’t visited the border, she laughed. She laughed, and this is no laughing matter. The border crisis impacts the safety and security of every Iowan, of every American. Every state is a border state right now,” Hinson added.

As expected, politicians from the Democrat Party rejected Hinson’s idea. House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern of Massachusetts even said that the proposal wasn’t worth talking through.

In a recent interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Harris was caught lying and jumbling words to try to escape from the news anchor’s pressing questions about the southern border.

“I – at some point – you know – we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole – this whole – this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border,” Harris struggled to give a coherent answer.

“I – and I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t – I don’t understand the point that you’re making,” Harris said, making matters worse.

A few weeks ago, Hinson talked about immigration at a town hall in Manchester, Iowa. She stressed the need for stronger border security, an issue that she witnessed herself when she visited the southern border back in April. On the other hand, the vice president of the United States hasn’t been there, almost a hundred days after president Biden gave her the task to oversee the immigration crisis.

“Allowing the cartels to win by smuggling in people and contributing to human trafficking and the drug problem that we’re seeing in this country, that’s not right, either. We have to secure the border, and then we can continue to have good conversations about how we improve immigration moving forward,” Hinson stated.
