Harris visits Mexico
Vice President Kamala Harris plans to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to talk about immigration and other issues. She heads to Mexico City on Tuesday after her trip to Guatemala.
What has she done so far? During her first international trip as vice president, Harris met with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei and pledged U.S. support for improving conditions in the country. She urged Guatemalans not to attempt the dangerous journey north, where they stand a good chance of falling prey to human traffickers, and insisted the Biden administration would enforce U.S. immigration laws. Shortly after Harris’ meeting with Giammattei, the Justice Department announced it would step up efforts to stop corruption in Central America and established a new law enforcement task force to fight human trafficking and smuggling.
