Reading material available to migrant minors at a new shelter in Long Beach, California, includes Vice President Kamala Harris’s children’s book, thanks to a community member who donated a copy.
Correction: A previous version of this story indicated that every migrant child at the Long Beach Shelter would receive a copy of Vice President Harris’s children’s book. Currently there is one copy of the book in the shelter’s collection, and the children choose what they read from the donated inventory. The headline and story have been revised accordingly.
“’Whenever there’s trouble, superheroes show up just in time,’ Harris tells kids in the book, shown sitting on a cot with more basic supplies at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, newly-converted to deal with the spiraling illegal immigration influx.” the New York Post reported.
Though the shelter offers migrant minors access to a copy of Harris’s book, Superheroes are Everywhere, Harris has no plans to visit the southern border, where minors are held before making their way to California.
Instead, Harris spent time at the Canadian border, in New Hampshire, peddling President Joe Biden’s infrastructure package Friday.
“Welcome to the #WrongBorder, [Vice President Kamala Harris]!” the New Hampshire GOP tweeted. “As you travel over 2,300 miles away from El Paso, our country would be better served with an official visit to our southern border, not a campaign trip for [Hassan].”

“Vice President Kamala Harris would serve our nation better by tackling the crisis at our southern border instead of campaigning with Maggie Hassan near our northern border,” New Hampshire GOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek said.
When she was asked Friday when she might visit the southern border, she ignored the question.
It has been 30 days since Biden tasked Harris with ending the migrant crisis on the border.
