  • Kamala Harris to visit U.S.-Mexico border, assess migration

A group of Republican congressmen tells Biden it's time to fire Vice President Kamala Harris from her job leading the administration's response to the border crisis.

Harris took the lead on the campaign to ensure American families know about the tax benefit, which was expanded under the American Rescue Plan, during an event in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Almost 3,300 migrants stranded in Mexico since January due to a USA border policy have been kidnapped, raped, trafficked or assaulted, according to a report by a human rights group released on Tuesday. During a news conference on June 8, Harris delivered a warning to people in the region "who are thinking about making that unsafe trek to the United States-Mexico border".

The identity of the second man arrested has not been released, but the RCMP described him as "an associate" of Wildman's. Fire Chief Mark Sinclair said the fire had taken over the home, a garage, a workshop and more than 40 nearby vehicles.

Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar on Saturday said he had not heard back from Harris after inviting her to visit the border. The issue overshadowed Harris' first foreign trip earlier this month, to Guatemala and Mexico, where she met with both nations' presidents and local officials and advocates to discuss economic and humanitarian solutions to the significant outmigration from both countries. The vice president has been called out by the right for not visiting the border in the months while she has been charged with responding to the surge.

Republicans have begun calling on Biden to replace Harris in her role dealing with the immigration crisis. A record 178,000 undocumented migrants are said to have crossed over from the United States southern border this April, the highest total in more than two decades.

But Harris and White House aides in Washington were forced to parry repeated questions from the press about why she left a border visit off the trip.
