KAMALA Harris was slammed for refusing to visit the US border and "advocating for lawlessness" by a Border Patrol union head.
After returning from her first international trip as vice president to Mexico and Guatemala, Harris has faced much criticism over her handling of the border crisis so far.
Appearing on Fox News on Sunday, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd accused the VP of being an "advocate for illegal aliens."
Harris "can’t go to the border – if she goes to the border, she’s going to be expected to solve this problem," Judd told Fox's Maria Bartiromo.
Judd went on to allege that Harris has incited "lawlessness" not just at the border, but around the US, with her rhetoric.
"This is a problem that she created," he continued.
"She even came out and said that she's an advocate for illegal aliens. She's supposed to be an advocate for citizens of this country.
"Yet, she's coming out and she's saying that she's advocating lawlessness."
The border official later alleged that this is "the reason that we're seeing all of the problems that we're seeing in cities like Oregon, New York, Chicago."
Harris has been widely slammed for her approach to the border crisis ever since President Biden put her in charge of addressing it earlier this year.
The VP has repeatedly insisted that she is working on addressing the "root causes" of why so many migrants are attempting to enter the US illegally.
Immigrant officials said more than 180,000 people were apprehended at the border in May alone. That number was up from around 178,800 in April.
In a statement released earlier this week, former President Donald Trump blamed the Biden administration for the crisis.
"In the history of our country, it has never been more dangerous or worse," Trump said.
"At no time in our country's history has anything so outrageous taken place.
"The Biden Administration stopped construction of the small remaining openings in areas of the almost 500-mile long wall, have taken away all authority from our great Border Patrol.

"And they have ended such long fought for policies including Remain in Mexico, Safe Third Agreements, and our hugely successful program that completely stopped Catch-and-Release," he continued.
Harris has responded to criticism by reiterating her dedication to addressing "root causes" of the migration influx and insisting that she will eventually visit the southern border.
The VP briefly appeared at the Washington, DC, Pride parade on Saturday after giving several, at times heated, interviews about the border situation this week.
