The administration has been expelling migrant children. They said it’s to contain the spread of COVID-19, but these children have tested negative. I’ll say it again– they’re using the pandemic to harm immigrants, including unaccompanied children. https://t.co/58mt5HDxFY— Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris) August 11, 2020
False CLAIM: Harris is not eligible to serve as president
Some people claimed that she is not eligible for the position of president, as her parents were immigrants. If Biden (she‘s Biden’s running mate) fails to serve full term as president his successor will be Nancy Pelosi and not Harris.
But, she is a natural born United States citizen and she is naturally eligible for this position. Some Facebook users are spreading a wrong claim that if Biden fails to serve his term Nancy would be the next in line to serve as the president. She, now, 55, was born on Oct. 20, 1964, in Oakland, California, making her a natural-born U.S. citizen. (Source: Chicago Tribune)
