カーター, Fox Newsの寄稿者, ハリスがメキシコに向けて出発した直後に、ジャマッティと話した; following what both liberal and conservative critics called a disastrous visit to the northern triangle by the California Democrat.
Giammattei told Carter that people are leaving Guatemala and being taken advantage of by the ruthless cartels and human trafficking “coyotes”, in part because of mixed messaging from the United States.
“He pushed back against the Biden administration… He said this border crisis is one of your own making. Don’t put the blame on us,” Carter recalled.
Giammattei said the U.S. should be clearer in its messaging, and that humanitarian messages have routinely been “distorted” by coyotes to flood the border with unaccompanied minors – and benefit financially in the process.
“What they said [in the US] is that they will promote family unification – so the coyotes took the children and teenagers to the U.S., and the order was full, not only with people from Guatemala.”
“[それ] is why our proposal is that messages should be clear,” 彼は続けた, adding that Harris was firm in her “do not come” message given while speaking to reporters there.
“But if you have a lukewarm message, it only creates the opportunity to misinterpret,” he cautioned.
Speaking with host Sean Hannity, Carter added that Giammattei wants bilateral cooperation with the U.S. that includes stronger federal charges against traffickers and coyotes. He said he is willing to institute that at home while in concert with Washington.
