Vice President Kamala Harris traveled all the way to Guatemala to tell people not to come to the southern border. She issued a message to potential migrants considering making the trek in an attempt to gain entry into the United States: You will not succeed.

Giammattei declared that the country would create “returnee centers” where its citizens would be accepted after being sent home from the United States.
I am very proud that this is my first
