As “border czar,” Harris has overseen a disastrous invasion of illegal immigrants into the United States, even while she continued to claim the nation’s southern border was secure. According to Insider, the amendment Collins proposed said, “None of the funds made available by this Act may be used for the salary or expenses of any officer or employee of the Office of the Vice President.” The congressman attempted to add this to the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, but the amendment was defeated in a 322-106 vote.
