Biden faucets Harris to stem immigrant circulate


Washington, March 25

US President Joe Biden has entrusted his Vice-President Kamala Harris with the task of leading the diplomatic effort and working with neighbouring Mexico and Northern Triangle nations of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to stem the flow of immigrants to the southern border.

Biden said nobody is better qualified than Harris, who ran the second-largest attorney general’s office in America, for this. “This new surge (of migrants) we are dealing with now started with the last administration but it is our responsibility to deal with it humanely and to stop (it from) happening and so this increase has been consequential,” Biden told reporters at the White House on Wednesday.


It’s Our responsibility to check surge

Looking forward to engaging with leaders

I look forward to engaging with the government, private sector, civil society and leaders of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to strengthen democracy, and the rule of law.. —Kamala Harris, VP

“The Vice-President has agreed… to lead our diplomatic effort and work with those nations to accept the returnees and enhance migration enforcement at their borders and we are already talking with Mexico about that,” he said.

“I (can) think of nobody who is better qualified to do this than… this is a woman who ran the second-largest attorney general’s office in America after the United States attorney general in the State of California,” he said about Harris. In her remarks, Harris said there are many factors that lead residents to leave these countries. “While we are clear that people should not come to the border now. We also understand that we will enforce the law…,” she said. — PTI
