Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey isn’t an advocate for Vice President Kamala Harris leading the White House effort to tackle the migration challenge at the U.S. southern border.
“She’s about the worst possible choice that one could make,” Ducey said Wednesday at a press conference in Tucson. “At no point in her career has she given any indication that she considers the border a problem or a serious threat.
“If President Biden’s intent was to show that he’s taking this issue seriously, he’s really done the exact opposite here. He’s completely trivialized this issue by putting someone in charge who flat out just doesn’t care.”
President Joe Biden made the announcement as he and Harris met at the White House on Wednesday with Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandra Mayorkas and other immigration advisers to discuss the increase in migrants, including many unaccompanied minors, arriving at the border in recent weeks.
Ducey, in a separate press conference last week at the Arizona border town of Douglas, tore into the Biden administration as being “totally divorced from the reality on the ground” when it came to issues at the border.
