NBC News anchor Lester Holt challenged Vice President Kamala Harris on why she has not visited the U.S. southern border.

Harris has been charged with leading the White House response to an increase in migration from Central America to the U.S. border with Mexico. In an interview with the vice president from Guatemala, where she said she is on the ground to address the “root causes of migration,” Holt asked why she has not visited the U.S. border itself to witness what is going on.

“The question that has come up and you heard it here and you’ll hear it again I’m sure, is, ‘Why not visit the border? Why not see what Americans are seeing in this crisis?'” Holt asked.
