Kamala Harris celebrates the "success" of her visit to Mexico and Guatemala to reduce immigration to the US

The Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris , has described her trip to Mexico and Guatemala as a “success” due to the progress made to promote progress in the region and act against migration. At a press conference in Mexico, after her meeting with the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador , with whose government she has signed a cooperation agreement, the vice president has thus valued her trip.

In this sense, he highlighted the memorandum of understanding signed with Mexico for assistance in the country, as well as the dialogue held in Guatemala against corruption.

Harris highlighted in this speech Washington’s support for the economic sector in the region to promote development, specifically with the work together with the Mexican economic sector, and also highlighted the announcement of 130 million dollars from the White House to promote reform.

Likewise, he has indicated that in his meeting with López Obrador the need to make the requirements for applying for visas to the United States more flexible, although this issue will be addressed in the future.

Visit to the US-Mexico border

On the other hand, Harris has addressed the controversy about his visit to the US-Mexico border, as he has received criticism for not having visited during this trip. In this regard, he has transferred that he will visit the place soon, although he has put in the first place the need to address the causes of immigration of people from Central America.

“Yes, I will visit the border, I have already done it, they know that I have spent a lot of time on the border and I am very aware of the issues”, he also said about it, to add that “if one wants to face the problems, we have to go to the center. The president (Joe Biden) asked me to work on the root causes of migration, that’s why I went to Guatemala ”, he insisted.

In this context, he has also delved into the fact that the White House aims to find the families that have been separated by the immigration authorities, a job that “will be worth it”, as he has added, to reiterate its intention to address the “problem generational »of migration.

The president of the United States , Joe Biden , has commissioned Harris to lead efforts to reduce the flow of migration from Central America to the United States.

The spokesman for the United Nations General Secretariat, Stéphane Dujarric , when asked at the daily press conference about Kamala Harris’s statements that immigrants did not try to reach the border, replied that “it is not his job to go into details. “However, he has appealed for dialogue between states affected by the migration crisis.

“There needs to be an active dialogue between countries of residence, countries of destination, countries of origin and countries of transit,” he said, adding that the role of the UN is to “help support the institutions in countries to ensure that people live in places where their basic rights are respected.

“What we want is for countries to enter into a fruitful dialogue to manage migration and ensure that immigrants are not left in the hands of criminal elements who not only take their money, but also their dignity,” he concluded.
