Harris’ other roles include reducing illegal immigration and promoting union membership.

     “The argument is that the president is not supporting her with the tools that she needs [because he does not supporting ending] the filibuster for voting rights and that’s in her portfolio. You have one of her friends and a Democrat strategist, Bakari Sellers, who says her portfolio is trash because he’s not supporting her in the way she needs to be supported for this to pass,” Ryan told Psaki at her daily press briefing. Psaki defended Biden’s commitment to stalled election reform legislation and to supporting Harris in promoting it.
