NOTW Posted June 7, 2021 Share Posted June 7, 2021 Kamala Harris in Guatemala to migrants: do not come here illegally, we will enforce our borders. I'm sure the left will be calling her racist and the right will celebrate a Democrat enforcing border security. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/vice-president-kamala-harris-travels-to-guatemala-first-foreign-trip/ Quote "I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border," Harris said during a press conference with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei Monday. "Do not come. Do not come. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border." Harris said of her meeting with Giammattei earlier in the day that the two discussed the root causes of migration, particularly the lack of economic opportunity for many in Guatemala. It's in the U.S. interest to help create economic opportunity for Guatemalans, she said, even as she discouraged illegal immigration to the U.S. "There are legal methods by which migration can and should occur, but we, as one of our priorities, will discourage illegal migration," Harris continued. "And I believe if you come to our border, you will be turned back. So let's discourage our friends, our neighbors, our family members, from embarking on what is otherwise an extremely dangerous journey, where in large part the only people who benefit are coyotes." 1 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
