U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris has broken her silence on 53 Texas migrant deaths

Kamala Harris hit out at Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s response to the news that at least 53 migrants had died after being left in an abandoned semitruck in San Antonio, Texas.

“How the governor of that state responded really highlights part of the problem because his response when there are 50 dead bodies in his state is to go straight to politics,” Harris said in an interview with NPR.

“Instead of dealing with the realities of the issue.”

Officials are investigating what appears to be one of the deadliest human smuggling cases in modern U.S. history.

Republicans are blaming the horrific incident on the Biden administration’s immigration policies.

“These deaths are on Biden,” Abbott tweeted on Monday night. “They are a result of his deadly open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law.”

President Joe Biden hit back at the governor and accused him of “political grandstanding”.

Harris argued the administration is taking “seriously” the issue of human smuggling.

“There have been over 2,000 arrests just in the last three months. I think there are at least eight indictments that have happened,” she said.

“We need to deal with that, right, in terms of the consequences of criminal behavior that results in death.”

“We also need to take seriously the fact that we have a broken immigration system that was decimated by the last administration,” she continued.

“And we’ve been trying, and we are on the path doing it, to fix that broken system.”

Harris was deemed the “border czar” by Biden upon entering office.

In a statement,Trump says the property was ‘under siege’ adding nothing like this has ever happened to a former President of the United States before.

Sources close to the matter say it’s all part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents, which may have been taken to Florida.

The search is a clear indication authorities are moving in on their January 6 Capitol riot investigation.

Trump says the unannounced raid comes despite him working cooperatively with the relevant law enforcement agencies.

It follows the January 6 Congressional committee probing last year’s attack on the Capitol, gathering evidence in a series of explosive hearings.

Many witnesses have accused Trump of knowingly inciting the incident as part of a deliberate plot to overthrow the 2020 election.
