Harris has visited the southwest border only once since President Biden tasked her in March 2021 with addressing the root causes of the ongoing immigration surge. In June, the vice president said the Biden administration's efforts alongside private organizations were "making progress" — in part by generating over $3.2 billion in economic investments across Central America.

Harris hasn't been to the border since a June 2021 trip to El Paso, Texas, despite subsequent visits to border states. Meanwhile, almost 2.8 million migrants crossed the southern border illegally between September 2021 and September 2022 — over 1 million more than the previous year, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Robert said the vice president should revisit the border to witness the effects of recent surges in illegal immigration.
