Girlboss, Gatekeep, Gaslight: Inside the United States Border Policy


In yet another incredible week for girlbosses everywhere, Kamala Harris continues to make strides for women’s rights after being appointed President Joe Biden’s point woman for the border crisis and creating the policy of Girlboss, Gatekeep, Gaslight.

The Biden administration has been lauded for its attempts at unity. According to insiders, “We noticed how much people hated Trump’s border policies and really wanted to keep that energy going into 2021.” When asked to elaborate, the insider stated, “We basically asked ourselves, how many UN human rights resolutions can we continue to break while still being feminists? And the answer was actually most of them.”

Over 35,000 unaccompanied children are set to seek asylum in the United States by the end of the year. With Harris having no official visits or plans to visit the border, this girlboss has really shown off “work-smarter-not-harder.” Why help people seeking asylum when FOX and CNN are more interested in the coverage surrounding your boss lady fits at the inauguration? Harris proves that gatekeeping social movements and social media platforms are small potatoes when a true girlboss can actually gatekeep an entire border.

Taking a straw from famous feminists like Melania Trump, Harris has truly proven that a woman can have a life independent from children, especially if you’re a parent and child seeking political asylum in “the home of the free.”

A phone call from Harris to the Mexican Ambassador was reported as her saying, “Heyyyy hun! You’re so cute and do I have an opportunity for you! This new business opportunity will give you financial freedom.” As it turns out, this line was repeated both in her pitch to get him to buy her new Detox Tea line and while discussing Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Getting good things in life comes from being your own CEO, doing things yourself and manifesting positive vibes; Harris knows that this stands true for everyone, whether you’re a high-powered politician with countless resources or a seven year old child fleeing crime and poverty. “We’re not gaslighting anyone. Gaslighting isn’t even real,” said Kamala last Friday.
