(AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris says the Biden administration has made progress tackling a migration spike that’s drawn fire from Republicans and made fellow Democrats uncomfortable. Her first trip to the U.S.-Mexico border as head of the Biden administration’s response is being closely watched on all sides.

Visiting El Paso, Harris called the situation at the border “tough” and said there’s more to be done. Harris met with five young girls, ages 9-16, who had been held at a Customs and Border Protection processing center after crossing the border, the White House said. She also spoke with agents.
