The Vice President seems to be getting a LOT on her plate….
Now Voting Rights Bill…
President Joe Biden has tapped Vice President Kamala Harris to lead the administration’s push for voting rights legislation, he said in a speech Tuesday in Tulsa, Okla.
“With her leadership and your support, we’re going to overcome again, I promise you, but it’s going to take a hell of a lot of work,” Biden said, saying that the right to vote is “under assault” at a level he had never seen before.
In a statement following the speech, Harris said she would work with Congress, community and voting rights organizations, and the “private sector” to push voting rights efforts both nationally and in statehouses.
“The work ahead of us is to make voting accessible to all American voters, and to make sure every vote is counted through a free, fair, and transparent process,” Harris said in the statement. “This is the work of democracy.”
The assignment, which adds to a rapidly swelling portfolio that already includes addressing the root causes of migration from Central America, constitutes another daunting and politically charged task that Biden has dropped on his No. 2. But Harris, a former state attorney general, has worked on voting rights issues before and expressed interest in the subject.
Last month, she sat down with voting rights and civil rights leaders to discuss their work to combat voter suppression efforts. While Harris had been involved in the administration’s broader voting rights discussion, the decision to choose her to oversee the administration’s agenda on the matter came recently, an official said….
The Vice President was assigned the job of overseeing the countries Immigration effort….
Not so fast….
It turns out that Immigration is turning out to be tough nut for the Biden admin, as it has been for every modern age President…
NOTHING has stopped the migration of people from South of the American border to this country ….
With THAT in mind?
The Harris people have gone out of their way to back the Vice President AWAY from the original goal of oversewing the ‘whole’ immigration effort….Harris is now detailed to try to offer American foreign aid to South and Central American countries to enable them to build up their economies to offer jobs to keep people home….
Immigration politically has become toxic….
The original White House person that was ‘supposed’ to oversee the Immigration policy was Susan Rice in charge of overseeing ALL Domestic policy (Domestic Policy Council) ….
Anybody hear her name mentioned recently in the same sentence as immigration?
