    Kamala Harris tells Guatemala migrants: 'Do not come to US'


    US Vice President Kamala Harris has urged would-be migrants in Guatemala not to try to enter the United States illegally.

    Speaking on her first overseas trip since taking office, she said the journey north was dangerous and would mainly benefit people smugglers.
    Ms Harris warned people they would be turned back at the border.
    She has been tasked by President Joe Biden with controlling a surge in migration at the southern border.

    Ms Harris has described her task as finding solutions to tackle the root causes of the border crisis, including corruption and the lack of economic opportunities. Her staff say this first visit is primarily an information-gathering trip.

    In a news conference alongside Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei, she warned against illegal migration to the US, saying: "Do not come. Do not come. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our borders."
    She added: "If you come to our border, you will be turned back."

    My oh my, how their tune has changed in only a few months. Next thing you know Biden will have a brilliant novel idea to build a border wall.

    This happened after Giammattei flat out blamed Biden's messaging for people leaving to go to the US. The message was more damage control than anything else.

    And, naturally, AOC blasted her for that message.

      That's what Willie Brown's mistress says, but what the Democrats actually do is another matter. People who enter the country illegally are given a one way bus ticket to the city of their choice where they're allowed to simply disappear, never to be heard from again unless they commit a crime.

        How long ago was Harris placed in charge of the border by old Joe? Did she ever once visit it? And now after all this time she finally issues a statement consisting of what she could have said on Day one.

          And in many of those jurisdictions the Democrats will literally release prisoners that ICE has issued a detention order for, letting them leave the jail through a back door so if the Feds arrive they won't see them slipping out and away into the night. We even had a mayor in (what was it, Oakland?) issuing public service announcements warning illegals to not go to work because the Feds were going to be conducting a major raid.

              She still hasn't visited the border.

                I can imagine Kamala as a child being asked if she has done her homework first saying she did, and when called out on her lie responding "and I haven't cleaned my room. I don't understand the point you're making."

                Aside from sounding very Hillary-ish there at the end (shades of "what difference does it make?") she understood the point well enough to try to bluff her way through by lying about it.

                    For a liberal like you, it doesn't get much lower than speaking the truth, does it?

                    Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past extramarital relationship with U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris in his weekly column Saturday, saying he may have boosted the presidential hopeful's career.

                    "Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago," Brown wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle.

                    "Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was [California] Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco."

                    [...]

                    The former mayor also connected Harris with campaign donors, which helped her outraise her opponent for San Francisco district attorney, Business Insider reported. Brown's involvement in her election raised questions as to how Harris would remain impartial, given his enormous political clout.

                      Which is worse...

                      A prominent politician (the current VP!) who got her start by umm, "servicing" a powerful figure sexually

                      or

                      Someone pointing out that prominent politician got her start by umm, "servicing" a powerful figure sexually.

                      We can see which you believe is worse but I suspect that most would strongly disagree.

                          Don't you first have to enforce our laws and secure our borders in order to continue doing so? Old Joe pretty much opened the borders and threw down a welcome mat almost immediately after he wandered into the White House.

                          If I lived down there I'd see Harris' remarks as given with a wink and a nod.
