The US Vice President Kamala Harris, who has been appointed by the US President as the coordinator of U.S. affairs with Mexico and Central American nations to curb the influx of illegal immigrants, has said she will be visiting Mexico and Guatemala to discuss the issue in a near future.
“I will be traveling to these countries to discuss their government's response to the migration crisis,” the Vice president said. However, she did not specify dates on when she is visiting the countries.
Meeting with the experts on Latin American issues, Harris said she has no plan to visit the southern border right now as her mission is to address the root cause of migration.
“The U.S. aims to give Central American citizens hope to stay in their countries despite high levels of violence and poverty,” she said.
Harris did not clarify if she will be visiting Honduras and El Salvador. Citizens of those countries make up the majority of undocumented people reaching the southern border.
