Vice President Kamala Harris has received a serious amount of criticism of late regarding her unwillingness to travel in order to understand the humanitarian crisis that has been ongoing on our southern border.
In fact, it took more than 70 days to get Harris to even consider heading south, and this trip only comes as the Vice President continues to parrot radical left talking points about climate change being a “root cause” of immigration.
In a stark and prescient reminder of the times that we are living in, Harris told Guatemalans, during her visit to their country, to steer clear of the USA.
“I want to emphasize that the goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home, at the same time I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making the dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border — do not come, do not come,” she said.
Harris made the remarks at a press conference alongside Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei as she visited the country in her first visit abroad since being appointed by President Biden to lead diplomatic efforts to the region to help solve the massive spike in migration to the border in recent months.
This is a far different message than the Democrats usually exude to the world around them, and stands in stark contrast to the sort of sentiment that greeted immigrants at Ellis Island, as emblazoned on the Statue of Liberty.
