From Fox News:
Vice President Kamala Harris falsely claimed that “we were on the border” when she urged why she had not yet visited the southern border after being appointed by President Biden to tackle the “root causes” of migration.
During an interview with NBC News Tuesday, Harris, who was criticized by Republicans for failing to make the trip to the US-Mexico border, was asked if she was planning to do so.
Harris has been heavily criticized by Republicans for handling the role since she was appointed 75 days ago. While the White House has insisted that she is not in charge of the border per se, Republicans have repeatedly criticized her for not visiting the border at all – former Trump officials said she must go to the border to cross the border being able to speak effectively.
Harris’ comments came while visiting Guatemala for her first overseas visit since President Biden’s appointment to lead diplomatic efforts in the region to resolve the massive surge in migration to the border in recent months.
During a press conference with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei, Harris told potential migrants not to travel to the U.S. border with Mexico – claiming that if they did, they would be rejected.
Harris appeared to be trying to get that message across on Monday, claiming that migrants would be turned back as it tried to take a tougher stance on illegal immigration.
The White House apparently clarified Harris’ comments on Tuesday, saying that they are encouraging those wishing to come to the US to “do so legally”.
The White House says they have made this policy clear – noting that Amb. Susan Rice and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan reiterated that this is not the time to come to the US, noting that President Biden was said something similar in March, while Homeland Security Minister Alejandro Mayorkas urged migrants to pursue legal immigration routes.
The Biden administration has rolled back a number of Trump-era policies that kept migrants out of the US, even as more migrants flocked to the border. The most significant of these were the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) that migrants held in Mexico while they waited for their hearings. The Biden government has terminated the program and is processing the migrants enrolled in the program in the United States
It has also ended a number of asylum cooperation agreements with countries like Guatemala that encouraged migrants to seek asylum in other countries first, and has been accused of encouraging migration by restricting domestic enforcement in the US and already on a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants to urge in the US
The government has retained the Trump-era Public Health Ordinance Title 42, which allows for rapid evictions of migrants due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and officials said that of the 178,000 migrants encountered at the border in April, 111,714 were expelled – mainly single adults.
However, the government has not applied Title 42 to unaccompanied children, more than 13,000 of whom arrived at the border in April, and it is not returning migrant families with children under seven to Mexico as the country refused to accept them. That means a significant number of families will not be turned back and released into the US interior.
