Well, your facts are at odds with what Harris herself told the LA Times about parents being jailed.
Personally, I'm fine with Harris getting the VP slot. There's plenty to criticize in her record, and if Biden / Harris win I will be holding their feet to the fire (ineffectually, I assume) come January. In the meantime, I'm happy with Harris over a bunch of other possibilities, though I think it's kind of weird to hear everyone hammering the left for ideological purity and 'evangelism' and then watching Simon get roasted for criticizing the Dem VP pick. I mean, I get that getting Trump out of office is paramount but I don't see why we should go 100% tribal and suspend all judgment and criticisms of our leaders in the meantime.
ETA: correction she said it on a podcast not to the LA Times
