VP Harris to Guatemalan Asylum Seekers: "Do Not Come"





On her first visit as Vice President to Guatemala, Vice President Kamala Harris had a blunt message for the Guatemalan people, including asylum seekers.

As reported by the Associated Press, Vice President Harris expressed optimism about cooperation with Guatemala on addressing the migration to the U.S. after her meeting yesterday with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei. She also delivered an unequivocal message to migrants considering making the trek: “Do not come. Do not come.”  Not much empathy there.

VP Harris's next stop is Mexico.


UPDATE (June 9):  Throughout her visit (and here), Vice President Harris was hammered on her failure as Vice President to visit the U.S./Mexico border and see in person the human impacts of migration and border enforcement.
