Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday deplored the European explorers who first landed in North America, using a virtual address at the National Congress of American Indians 78th Annual Convention to claim President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda will do much to ameliorate the damage she attributes to mass migration.
After citing the statistics of missing Native American women and girls and claiming the voting rights of Native Americans are denied, Harris informed the delegates, “Native Americans are more likely to live in poverty, to be unemployed, and often struggle to get quality healthcare and to find affordable housing.”.
Harris claimed Biden’s $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill will help tackle many of the problems Native Americans face.
