The honeymoon in the White House might certainly be over. It looks like Kamala Harris is not getting much love from Hollywood any more after she made controversial comments about the U.S.-Mexican border crisis.
After she told illegal immigrants that they need to stop trying to enter the U.S., actress America Georgine Ferrera made it no secret that she was certainly disappointed in the VP. Here’s what you need to know.
During her trip to Guatemala this past week, Kamala made it pretty clear that the crisis at the border is getting out of hand. During a press conference, Kamala Harris said, “I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come, do not come. The United States will continue to enforce our laws, and secure our border.”
Kamala Harris Is Not Getting Any Love From Hollywood Following Her Controversial Border Comments
She added, There are legal methods by which migration can and should occur, but we, as one of our priorities, will discourage illegal migration. And I believe if you come to our border, you will be turned back.”
While on The View, America said that she felt extremely disappointed by the Vice President’s choice of words. She said that Kamala Harris’ remarks only adds confusion “at just how useless and futile and ineffective a strategy that is.”
She added: “I know that Vice President Harris knows the stories too, but I have spent many years sitting in shelters, detention centers on this side of the border and on the other side of the border with, you know, Honduran families, Mexican families, Guatemalan families — hearing the stories of the violent and life-threatening circumstances they’re fleeing.”
“It’s not only incredibly ineffective, as she knows, it’s cruel,” Kamala continued. “That’s such a disappointment because — because Vice President Harris and President [Joe] Biden promised compassion. They promised humanity. They promised that we were going to bring humanity back into our country’s governance and including in our immigration policy.”
