Kamala Harris declares foreign border-jumpers an 'ethnic group'

Democratic senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris thinks illegal aliens have now become an "ethnic group."  Here's her tweet:

Last we heard, the border-jumping crowd being apprehended in the current surge included citizens of Congo, Honduras, Cuba, Guatemala, Venezuela, Uganda, Bangladesh, El Salvador, and other failed states.  Calling them an "ethnic group" is pretty absurd, unless, of course, Harris thinks they all look alike.

But in making this phony charge, it's pretty obvious what Harris's real game was: spreading the "narrative" that border laws are "racist" and that any enforcement effort at all amounts to pure discrimination.  This, if true, is a heck of a thing for someone of any supposedly oppressed ethnicity to want to get into. 

It's also an odd thing for a former prosecutor, supposedly schooled in rule of law, to claim.  She got herself a tweetstorm for her nonsense on those grounds alone. Here are a couple of choice morsels:

Her grandstanding also speaks to yet another issue: her ignorance of her own job. 

Congress sets immigration quotas and makes immigration law, and here we have Harris, a sitting member of the Senate who's one of the few people in the U.S. with the power to change immigration law, complaining about the enforcement of laws Congress created.  Does she know this?  Does she ever do her job?  Or is it too much fun cooking up creative new claims about how the U.S. is racist?

Whatever it is, the leftist candidate who made her way in politics at Willie Brown's knee, so to speak, doesn't come off as terribly knowledgeable about her current job, let alone the one she wants.
