Kamala Harris meets with border officials, tours port of entry in visit to Texas border

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON Vice President Kamala Harris landed in El Paso Friday after facing pressure for months to visit the United States' southern border after being tasked with addressing the root causes of migration from Central America that is contributing to record-level apprehensions at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Harris, who has maintained her focus is on diplomatic relations in Central America and Mexico, rather than the situation at the border, has been working on diplomatic efforts to stem migration from the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Speaking with reporters on Friday, Harris said that it was always the plan to visit the border.

"The reality of it is that we have to deal with causes, and we have to deal with the effects," Harris told reporters after deplaning from Air Force 2. "So being in Guatemala, being in Mexico, talking with Mexico as a partner, frankly, on this issue, was about addressing the causes, and then coming to the border... is about looking at the effects of what we have seen happening in Central America."
