VP Kamala Harris was greeted by protesters in Guatemala Monday telling her “Trump won” and “go home”. The rally was visible to Harris’ motorcade as she arrived to meet with Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei one day after he blamed the US for luring his constituents north” reports the New York Post.
Guatemalan President Giammattei gave vice president Harris the lecture the American mainstream media has refused to give her, telling Harris they “are not on the same side of the coin” regarding migration. “We asked the United States government to send more of a clear message to prevent more people from leaving,” said Giammattei. Giammattei added that when Biden took office, “the message changed too: ‘we’re going to reunite families, we’re going to reunite children” he said. As a consequence, “the very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.”
Kamala Harris is taking a lot of heat right now and she’s not risking to the occasion or living up to the pressure.
But instead of owning up to that fact, Kamala is running around the world claiming the migrant flow is due to “climate change.”
She looks like a complete idiot doing this “climate change song and dance,” especially after Guatemala’s president just blamed Bumbling Joe for the surge.
The Post reports “the number of US-Mexico border detentions soared to a 21-year monthly high of more than 178,000 in April, the most recent month for which statistics are available. Many families and unaccompanied children are from the three-country ‘Northern Triangle’ of Central America, which includes Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.”
Biden’s behavior, rhetoric and policies have contributed to the record surges. Trump “made curbing illegal immigration and stopping asylum-seeker caravans from Central America major themes of his four-year term. At one point, he cut off foreign aid for regional governments” reports the Post.
Biden has ended Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy which required asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their claims were reviewed in US courts. Biden has also ended the wall construction and urged Congress to pass legislation to provide paths of citizenship for most illegal immigrants. All that has contributed to the border crisis despite Harris’ suggestion that “root causes” in Central America are to blame.
Critics attribute the record surge of illegal immigration to Biden’s policies, including his decision to end Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy that required most asylum-seekers from Central America to remain in Mexico while US courts reviewed their claims of persecution.
Biden also ended construction of Trump’s US-Mexico border wall and urged Congress to pass legislation that would establish a path to citizenship for most illegal immigrants. Republicans said the legislation and Biden policy changes created new “pull” factors for illegal immigration — countering Harris’ emphasis on “root causes” in Central America.
