Nikki Haley, a Republican whose name has been among the top contenders for the 2024 Presidential race, took aim at Vice President Kamala Harris, also a potential Presidential candidate, during the latter’s first foreign trip to handle border issues in the south.

Vice President Harris is currently on a trip to Guatemala and Mexico to discuss migration. Speaking in Guatemala, Harris point-blank called on citizens of those countries not to try to get into the U.S. illegally because they would certainly be turned back.

Speaking in a Fox News program June 8, 2021, Haley, the former United Nations Ambassador and the first ever Indian-American cabinet appointee during the  Trump administration, lashed out at Harris saying she lacked the chops to deal with the immigration issues roiling the Southern border.

“This is embarrassing. I don’t know what the problem is. Clearly, she is fearful, but Kamala Harris was given one job – one job – and that was to deal with the border, and any leader knows you can’t fix what you can’t see,” Harris said on the Fox interview, also accusing the Vice President of never having visited the border.

In an NBC interview, Haley faced a seemingly uncomfortable moment when newscaster Lester Holt asked her if she had visited the southern border. Haley has not.

Haley went on to say Harris had no experience on the ground and had not spoken to Border Patrol, and ““She doesn’t know what is happening there.”

“This is the same woman that literally tweeted out, ‘Come one com all, we are open for everyone’,” Haley said on Fox. And now Harris appears to have done and about-face, Hslry infivsyrf.  She accused Harris of not going to the border to see things first hand.

“I don’t know what her fear is at the border, but clearly, she has one,” Haley went on to say, adding that Biden appeared to have the same fear. “What I will call it is flat-out denial. They think that if they don’t go, it won’t be real. It’s very real,” Haley said.
