In a stunning rebuke of Democratic policy, Vice President Kamala Harris told Guatemala, (and the world), that America isn’t looking for any more immigrants right now.
The remarks came during her first visit south of the border since being tapped by Joe Biden to take charge of the humanitarian crisis occurring in the southern states of America, where an enormous influx of migrants is overwhelming US Customs and Border Patrol.
Harris then reiterated that stance.
Vice President Harris’ office Tuesday doubled down on her call for migrants not to make the long trek from Central America to the United States amid criticism from some progressives for comments she made Monday telling Guatemalans: “Do not come.”
“The President and Vice President have been clear in dissuading people from making the dangerous and treacherous journey to the U.S./Mexico border,” Harris chief spokesperson Symone Sanders said in a statement. “We encourage those who do want to come to the U.S. to do so legally and seek legal immigration options in their home countries. The Vice President is committed to addressing the root causes of migration, which also addresses why migrants are coming to our border.”

The statement came after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., denounced Harris’ “do not come” comment on Monday. Harris in the same comments also said she believes that if people come to the U.S. border then they “will be turned away.”
“This is disappointing to see,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “First, seeking asylum at any US border is a 100% legal method of arrival. Second, the US spent decades contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America. We can’t help set someone’s house on fire and then blame them for fleeing.”
This is just the latest rift to develop between the Biden administration and the far-left, and epitomizes the divide that some believe could lead to a civil war within the Democratic Party.
