'Do not come': Kamala Harris urges migrants to avoid illegal border crossings to US
Telegraph, 08 Jun 2021
US Vice President Kamala Harris has urged migrants from central America to not come to the United States as illegal border crossings hit a 10-year peak.
"I want to emphasise that the goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home," Ms Harris said on a visit to Guatemala City.
"At the same time, I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come, do not come."
Ms Harris is holding talks with the Guatemalan and Mexican presidents during a three-day visit to the region this week, her first foreign trip as Vice President.
