VP HARRIS SOBRE LA ASIGNACIÓN FRONTERIZA SUR: ‘IT’S NOT GOING TO BE SOLVED OVERNIGHT

“Bien, I would certainly have to ask her team about that specifically, but I would tell you also that her focus is not on the border. It’s on addressing the root causes in the Northern Triangle,” Psaki dijo.

That’s why the majority of her time has been spent on working on a diplomatic level. She is going to have a bilateral meeting with the president of Guatemala this afternoon. She’s going to speak with the president of Mexico next week, and she’s working with them to ensure there are systems put in place to reduce the amount of migration coming from these countries, but also to address the root causes. And that’s really what the president asked her to do,” the press secretary added.
