From the Washington Examiner:
Kamala Harris ‘is not doing the border,’ top aide says

A top aide to Vice President Kamala Harris tempered a White House announcement this week that she would oversee efforts to stem the flow of migrants at the southern border, a politically fraught task amid the growing crisis.
“The vice president is not doing the border,” Harris’s senior adviser and chief spokeswoman Symone Sanders told reporters on Friday, adding that the vice president is strictly dealing with the root causes of migration.
Sanders said the task would entail outreach to leaders in Mexico and the so-called “Northern Triangle” countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, calling it a “challenging situation.”
“It’s diplomatic work that needs to be done, and Vice President Harris is looking forward to doing it,” she said.
Giving away billions to mini-caudillos in Central American sounds dreary, but at least more enjoyable than trying to deal with actual migrants at the actual border.
