To wrap up her border visit, Harris will hold a press conference alongside Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Senior Advisor and Chief Spokesperson to the Vice President, Symone Sanders, said Harris choose to visit El Paso over the Rio Grande Valley because of its symbolic representation.

Sanders said El Paso was the “birthplace of the previous administration’s family separation policy.”
