Kamala Harris’ recent trip to Guatemala was an absolute disaster. The vice president was met with protesters and first tried blaming climate change for the recent border crisis even as the Guatemalan president blamed Joe Biden’s policies directly.

But it was Harris’s plea with Central and Southern Americans to “not come” that perked ears up. For once, it appeared the Biden administration was doing the right thing, albeit far too late to make a difference.

Further, AOC’s claim that the United States is somehow solely responsible for what’s going on in Central America is just yet more America-hating nonsense. How exactly is the United States responsible for what’s going on in El Salvador or Guatemala? Is the assertion that
