“Do not come to the U.S” Harris’ blunt message to Guatemala

Published

on

Vice President Kamala Harris has arrived in Central America and has sent a blunt message to those trying to enter the US illegally

Vice President Harris is on a delicate diplomatic mission: Offer a message of hope to the people of Guatemala and other countries in the region, but discourage them from trying to cross the U.S.’ southern border because they won’t be welcomed on the other side.

Her approach on her first ever foreign trip as the vice president of the USA was to simply, be blunt.

Sending a strong, clear message:

Harris pleaded with migrants from Central America to not make their way across the US border.

Harris also announced a range of new initiatives and measures, including a task force to reduce human trafficking, a woman’s empowerment program, and an anti-corruption group.

The United States will also boost its pandemic support for the nation, sending half a million coronavirus vaccines to Guatemala in the coming months.

But the main takeaway from the address was certainly migration, with Harris saying “do not come”

“The goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home,” Harris said in a press conference with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei.

“At the same time, I want to be clear to folks in the region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come. Do not come,”

Harris added that those that attempt to cross the border will be “turned back.”

Franchising provides brand recognition, operational support, and economies of scale but involves ongoing fees.
