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. However, as much as some might like to say “better late than never,” the expression rings hollow in this particular case.

During a joint press conference with Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei on Monday, Harris said: “I want to emphasize that the goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home.”

The Vice President continued:

When she landed in Guatemala, however, she was also met by protesters who didn’t seem on board with her claimed effort to want to “help” the region so that people wouldn’t be flooding illegally into the United States. The protesters included members of Society in Action, who said they were pro-life and anti-leftist agenda as well as members of the Veterans Association.

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
