Dozens of House Republicans have called on Joe Biden to remove Kamala Harris as his border czar amid mounting scrutiny on the Democrat for not visiting the southern border. In a letter signed by 56 lawmakers to Biden this week, the lawmakers argued Harris has not shown an adequate interest in observing the border crisis first hand.

The lawmakers also stated Harris has insulted Border Patrol agents, ICE officials and local law enforcement near the border by not speaking with them. Harris has continued to repeatedly dodged questions on whether she plans to make a trip.

Republicans have slammed the Biden administration for pulling back on many Trump-era policies to secure the border. A reported 180,000 immigrants flooded the border in May, resulting in the highest level of a migrant surge since 2006.

The GOP lawmakers argue the country cannot afford another minute of inaction from Harris and urge Biden to appoint someone else to help him get a better grip of the situation.
