- White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki pushed back Wednesday when a reporter questioned why Vice President Kamala Harris visited a bakery but not the southern border despite being put in charge of the crisis
- 'The vice president was visiting Chicago, actually, to talk about COVID and the importance of communities getting the vaccine,' Psaki said
- Added: 'So, while she was there, like many Americans, she got a snack. I think she's allowed to do that'
- Harris was tasked with addressing the crisis at the border amid a surge in migrant numbers
- In two weeks she has only held one phone call with the Guatemalan President and offered no interviews
- She did not visit the border despite traveling home to California for four days with no public commitments
- More than 170,000 migrants were caught trying to cross the border in March, its highest level in two decades
- Harris is yet to hold an interview or press conference on the matter or make a trip to see the 'humanitarian crisis' at the southern border or in Central American countries in her new role
Jen Psaki claimed Kamala is 'allowed' to 'get a snack' when the VP's role on the immigration crisis was questioned as she faces criticism for visiting a bakery in Chicago but not the southern border.
