Imagine being Kamala Harris.
You take your first big trip south of the border to what we used to call the developing world and you’re pretty excited about it because you know that as a licensed person of color, all the other people of color you’re going to meet will be thrilled to see you.
That’s how it works in the people of color community.
If you’re Kamala Harris, that’s what you’ve always assumed.
Imagine how that must feel if you’re Kamala Harris.So, you can’t really blame the unnamed White House staffer who swooped in to save the day, hiring a fake Univision reporter to suck up to Kamala Harris and make her feel better.
And then her spirits raised, Kamala Harris returned to immigration policy?KAMALA HARRIS (D), VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: What we must do to address the root causes of migration ….To address the root causes.The issue of root causes is not going to be solved in one trip.To address the root causes as though it’s something that can be dealt with overnight.To feel the effects of those root causes on our shores.And the root causes are based on the problems and the challenges that people are facing in countries like Guatemala, which is why I was there.We have to address the root causes?CARLSON: Hmm, that’s a lot of root causes.
So, what are these root causes.People like Kamala Harris have a demonstrated record of dramatically improving everything they touch.
ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ (D-NY): What we, as a country, what the United States has not done is actually own up to the fact that we have contributed to regime change, destabilization, and interventionist foreign policy that has contributed to these awful conditions throughout Latin America?But in the meantime, here’s an idea, kind of a random one: why don’t we fix the United States first.
With a conversation with, all of people, the President of El Salvador not so long ago and he made that point.
During that interview, the President pointed out that actually, it might make more sense for people on say the South Side of Chicago to apply for refugee status in El Salvador, not the other way around, because it is less dangerous in El Salvador?In 2018, Baltimore had 51 murders per 100,000 people; the same year, San Salvador had a smaller number, 50 per 100,000.So, why don’t people who live in Baltimore have a right to apply for asylum in Central America.
Meanwhile, thanks to people like Kamala Harris, our country is becoming far more dangerous.And that leads some people to wonder why Kamala Harris is promising to rebuild Central America rather than America.
You know, you fly that Air Force One over there to take care of people overseas and don’t take care of the United States, don’t take care of Chicago, and the same thing with all elected officials.
CORI BUSH (D-MO): I understand that people don’t like the slogan, I get that, but I don’t like death.
I don’t like black death.
I don’t like to keep seeing my people die in the hands of police, and nothing is happening.
I don’t like that.
I can’t care about, you know, if you like what I’m saying or not, my people are dying and that’s what I have to look at.
