Vice President Kamala Harris should consult members of Congress as she continues discussions with Mexican and Central American officials on the “root causes” of migration, a Republican lawmaker urged this week.
U.S. Rep. Yvette Herrell of New Mexico made the request in a letter to Harris dated Monday, according to Border Report.
In her letter, Herrell also invited Harris to join her in visiting border communities in the U.S. – something the vice president has not done during the 63 days that she has been the manager of President Biden’s response to the migrant crisis. Harris’ reluctance to visit the border region has drawn criticism from both Republicans and Democrats.

“I invite you to join me at the southern border of New Mexico to see the crisis firsthand and how it is affecting Americans in my district who fear violence and property damage along the border,” Herrell wrote.
“Further, I believe it is imperative that your discussions with the Governments of Mexico and Central American countries include members of Congress, especially those members from border communities and those on both sides of the aisle.”
