Vice President Kamala Harris departed Los Angeles International Airport Monday afternoon bound for Andrews Air Force Base, near Washington, ending a four-day visit to her Brentwood home that did not include any public events.
Harris traveled from Brentwood to LAX in a motorcade that prompted a temporary shutdown of the southbound San Diego (405) Freeway early Monday afternoon.
Harris arrived in Los Angeles Friday afternoon, after spending four hours, 40 minutes in El Paso, Texas, touring the Customs and Border Protection facility, then making a stop at the Paso Del Norte Port of Entry, considered one of the busiest pedestrian border crossings. During her visit, she met with five immigrant girls, age 9 to 16, urging them to “work hard, study, dream and hope.”
The trip to Los Angeles was Harris’ fourth since becoming vice president. She had most recently visited over Easter weekend.
