Kamala Harris made her trip to Guatemala and Mexico to talk about the “root causes” she claimed were causing the massive influx at the border, including things like climate change.

But, as we reported, she got brought up a little short when the Guatemalan president, Alejandro Giammattei, said that it was the change in policies from the Biden/Harris team that caused the influx.
