    A joke?

    How the **** is having a young girl crying from fear with a male touching her a joke?

    You got a pervy sense of humour.

    In 2015, while serving as California's Attorney General, Harris told KCBS-TV in Los Angeles, "An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal."

    "I'm a career prosecutor. I've personally prosecuted everything from low-level offenses to homicides. Unfortunately, I know what crime looks like. I know what a criminal looks like who's committing a crime. An undocumented immigrant is not a criminal," Harris added.

    Not sure what other "accomplishments" you're referring to... but continue with your name calling.

    Do you have a source?

    Most undocumented workers entered the country legally are less likely to be arrested for a violent crime than a natural born citizen, and it is accurate being undocumented is a misdemeanor.

    new estimates/projections of how many minors may travel to the U.S. this year:

    https://www.axios.com/border-crisis...ids-89cd0b23-a588-4f01-9547-d6f04b262542.html

    excerpts:

    The Biden administration projects the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September, according to documents leaked to Axios.

    Why it matters: Until this month, the record was 11,475 in May 2019. The minimum projections for each of the next six months are thousands higher than that.

    • To give a sense of how out of hand the crossings are getting, the administration projected just a month ago the figure for May would be 13,000. The new estimate is 22,000 to 25,000.
    • The Customs and Border Protection range for September is 22,000 to 26,000. Under any scenario, projections include a peak month that would double the record that stood until this month.
    ***
    The big picture: Under current policies, the government is facing unheard of numbers of migrant kids illegally crossing the border this fiscal year — from 159,000 to 184,000.

    • Even the low-end estimate is double the total number of kids who tried to cross during the crisis year of 2019. In 2014, the Obama administration struggled to care for just 69,000 kids who crossed illegally.
    • The data obtained by Axios did not include projections for migrant families, but the Department of Homeland Security is expecting from 500,000 to 800,000 migrants crossing the border this fiscal year in family groups, the Washington Post reportedSunday.

    Just google Kamala Harris on immigration and you'll find this.

    Here's a more recent source, https://www.yahoo.com/news/new-yaho...-on-immigration-and-the-border-090058355.html

    None of the plans to prevent migrants in any sort of humane way will work if our oligarchs keep working with their own oligarchs to keep hoarding all the money f in true libertarian style.
