Do you remember how many times the Democrats went after President Trump over the emoluments clause? Even his hotel in the heart of Washington is as booked solid today as it was when he was president.

Why is no one going after Kamala Harris?

Inside the welcome packs, as reported by the Gateway Pundit, is a book by Kamala Harris,  “Superheroes Everywhere”.

She makes a royalty for every book given away when it is her and Joe Biden’s decision to add the books.

From Cornell Law School:

The Emoluments Clause

Also known as the Title of Nobility Clause, Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution prohibits any person holding a government office from accepting any present, emolument, office, or title from any “King, Prince, or foreign State,” without congressional consent.

This clause is meant to prevent external influence and corruption of American officers by foreign States. A similar provision was included in the Articles of Confederation, applicable to both federal and state officers. The language of the modern clause, however, suggests that only federal government officials are prohibited from accepting any emoluments.

That the phrase “Offices of Profit or Trust under the United States” applies to all appointed officials is undisputed, however, there is much debate as to whether it extends to elected officials.

Kamala Harris’ book is making it to the border even if she isn’t. Come to think about it, I would prefer the book to a visit from her myself. The border is being positively overrun by unaccompanied minors. If each one got a copy of the book, sales would be over 20,000 with many many more to come.

That sounds like a nice little windfall to me. Open borders is turning into being almost as big for Kamala Harris as her dating Willie Brown was except the book won’t give her a brand new Mercedes.

The Daily Mail reported:

Vice President Kamala Harris’s children’s book Superheroes are Everywhere is being included in welcome packs for unaccompanied migrant children entering America at the Mexico border.

Images taken at a California shelter for migrants this week show Harris’ book sitting on a cot along with a backpack, some clothes and other basic supplies like body wash and toothpaste.

These form the welcome kits for unaccompanied migrant children arriving the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, which has recently been converted to deal with an influx of illegal immigration.

Migrant children found at the border without a parent will be temporarily housed at the facility, which officials say can accommodate up to 1,000 children.
