Crisis of Haitian migrants exposes rifts for Biden on immigration

When members of the Congressional Black Caucus arrived to Vice President Kamala Harris' residence this week for an event marking the group's 50th anniversary, talk quickly turned to the devolving humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexico border.

Gathered on a mild evening on the lawn outside the Naval Observatory, people familiar with the event said, Harris engaged members one-on-one in their urgent concerns about the situation in Texas, where thousands of Haitian migrants have been massing underneath a bridge in squalid conditions.

Harris, during the impromptu sessions, encouraged the group to continue speaking out on the matter -- even though, in many cases, the Democrats are speaking out against how President Joe Biden is handling the situation.

"I give her a lot of credit," Rep. Joyce Beatty, the chairwoman of the CBC, said on CNN. "Opening her doors to us, asking us to get engaged and to be very clear in our message."
