House Republican Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) introduced a bill to oust Vice President Kamala Harris from her role as Border Czar. The new legislation, which has 26 GOP co-sponsors, would remove Harris from overseeing border issues and force the government to recognize border security as national security.

Harris has only visited the southern border once, despite migrant encounters surpassing 2 million. Congressman Jackson said it’s past time to appoint someone who will put America’s interests first.

“Instead of working for the American people, Kamala Harris has worked against us by ignoring her duties as Border Czar,” the Republican noted on Twitter. “Today, I introduced a resolution calling on Joe Biden to remove her from the role. We need a real leader at the helm who will secure our southern border!”

According to Jackson, at least 1.7 million people are positioned to cross the border when President Joe Biden lets Title 42 expire next week.
