During a joint press conference with Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei, Vice President Kamala Harris had message for Central Americans considering illegally migrating to the United States: “Do not come.”

“We will discourage illegal migration,” she commented. “The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border.”

“There are legal methods by which migration can and should occur,” Harris added.

The Biden administration has taken a tepid rhetorical stance on border enforcement and has rolled back a number of Trump-era policies, prompting a massive influx of unauthorized migrants, including unaccompanied minors, to seek entry at the southern border. President Joe Biden recently announced the U.S. plans to dramatically expand the refugee admissions ceiling to 62,500 for this fiscal year. The administration also declared last month that it intends to sign an emergency determination to expedite prospective refugee processing.

Harris went on to say that “if you come to our border, you will be turned back.” But the Biden administration eliminated the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols, which required to asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their claims were being adjudicated. Since the policy was rolled back, roughly 40 percent of those who arrive on the Southern border seeking asylum are admitted to the U.S while their claims are adjudicated, and many of them never appear at their scheduled court hearings.
