When asked by NBC News' Lester Holt if she was going to visit the border, Harris replied, “This whole thing about the border, we’ve been to the border. Still smarting from the U.S. failure to defeat the Chinese-backed Communist forces in Vietnam, Reagan decided El Salvador was the place to finally stop communism in its tracks. (A popular 1980s sticker reading “El Salvador is Spanish for Vietnam” painted an accurate picture of the U.S. policy in the region.) If Harris went in looking for “root causes,” she missed the elephant in the room by not looking in the mirror. At the end of her three-day visit, reporters asked Harris how she felt about her trip.

“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

But when Sawyer tried to call her last month with the good news that she would be allowed into the United States, she couldn’t reach her – Jasibi had been kidnapped again. Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

A total of 3,913 migrant children were separated by the Trump administration, DHS said Tuesday. More than half of the nearly 4,000 children separated from their families by the Trump administration remain estranged from their parents, the Department of Homeland Security revealed in a new report on Tuesday. Still, as DHS's Inspector General said in a May report, some 348 parents and children were separated against their apparent wishes. The task force, created by an executive order from President Joe Biden, identified 3,913 children as having been separated from their parents during the last administration. Comunidad Maya Pixan Ixim, a nonprofit representing the Maya community in Nebraska, said it has been consulting with the DHS task force.

For a White House team that came into office promising to be more compassionate and effective on immigration policy, there is tremendous political risk in failing on either front. And the White House has been slow to respond to a major spike in migration. "The truth of the matter is: Nothing has changed," Biden said from the East Room of the White House on March 25. I'd be happy to offer this legislation to Vice President Harris or President Biden as a solution to the crisis on our southern border." “By handing Vice President Harris the assignment of dealing with what amounts to an intractable problem, Biden is certainly complicating her future.

As the Biden administration sharpens its focus on Central America in its quest to stem migration, it is facing a region that has seen democratic and economic deterioration compounding long-term challenges. It’s a job Biden had as vice president, but conditions in the region have worsened since then. The Salvadoran president reportedly received a similar snub from the Biden administration when he made an unannounced trip to Washington in February. Biden administration officials have said that little of the $4 billion will go to the central governments, but rather to nongovernmental organizations and other private entities. Aside from the diplomatic obstacles, critics of U.S. aid to Central America say it hasn’t slowed migration in the past.

Biden issued an executive order shortly after taking office that established a task force to reunify children separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border under former President Donald Trump, calling such separations a "human tragedy." The Biden task force, using information from advocates and ongoing litigation, has identified roughly 3,900 children separated from parents at the border and 1,700 cases that remain under review, the report said. Of the 3,900 separated children identified, nearly 1,800 have been reunified with a parent. Nearly all of those reunifications happened before the creation of the task force, the report said. While the overall number of children still separated from their parents is unknown, the report estimates it could be over 2,000.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaU.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will meet Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Tuesday, after mid-term elections in the country eroded his power base in Congress, and officials from both countries will sign an accord to cooperate on efforts aimed at lowering migration from Central America. The accord is aimed at boosting Harris's efforts of lowering the number of migrants from Central America's Northern Triangle countries - Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras - to the United States. On Monday, Harris met with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei and said the two leaders had "robust" talks on fighting corruption to deter migration from Central America. Harris also bluntly warned migrants to not come to the United States.

VP Kamala Harris pushed back on criticisms of her not taking a trip to the US-Mexico border. Harris said her role involves addressing the "root causes" of migration. But it is my firm belief that if we care about what's happening at the border, we better care about the root causes and address them. When asked about any plans for her to visit the border, Harris said she will "at some point" but repeatedly emphasized that other Biden administration officials have already done so. Do not come," Harris said.

REUTERS/Kevin MohattThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has eased its travel recommendations for 61 countries, including Japan from its highest "Level 4" rating that had discouraged all travel to recommending travel for fully vaccinated individuals, the agency confirmed Tuesday. The new ratings, which were not previously reported and posted on a CDC website Monday, lower 61 countries to "Level 3," including France, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Italy. The CDC added that many countries have lower ratings "because of the criteria changes or because their outbreaks are better controlled." The CDC added it expects more countries to get lower ratings. Many of the countries that now have lower ratings remain on the U.S. government's list of countries subject to severe travel restrictions -- and most have been subject to the restrictions since early 2020.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris speaks to media ahead of meeting women entrepreneurs, at the Sofitel Mexico City Reforma hotel in Mexico City, Mexico June 8, 2021. After meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in Mexico City, Harris told reporters she had "been to the border before and will go again." Harris, who has not made a trip to the border since becoming vice president, did not say when she might visit. "You can't say you care about the border without caring about the root causes," Harris said. Harris noted U.S.-Mexico cooperation over border security includes "the work of processing migration within the country of Mexico and its southern border."

And she offered perhaps her most direct warning yet to prospective migrants: “As one of our priorities, we will discourage illegal migration. And I believe if you come to our border you will be turned back." Harris said she would also continue to engage with private companies to help draw investments to the area as well. Guatemala sends more unaccompanied minors to the U.S. border than any other nation, according to data from Customs and Border Protection. Nancy McEldowney, Harris’ national security adviser, told reporters Sunday that Harris was “here as part of this administration’s overall effort to restore American leadership around the world.”

Supreme Court unanimously rules against immigrants with temporary status

WASHINGTON — A unanimous Supreme Court ruled Monday that thousands of people living in the U.S. for humanitarian reasons are ineligible to apply to become permanent residents. Justice Elena Kagan wrote for the court that federal immigration law prohibits people who entered the country illegally and now have Temporary Protected Status from seeking “green cards” to remain in the country permanently. So the conferral of TPS does not make an unlawful entrant...eligible" for a green card, she wrote. Monday's decision does not affect immigrants with TPS who initially entered the U.S. legally and then, say, overstayed their visa, Kagan noted. Because those people were legally admitted to the country and later were given humanitarian protections, they can seek to become permanent residents.

After their meeting, Harris and Giammattei are expected to host a news conference before Harris meets with Guatemalan entrepreneurs and community and civil society leaders. White House officials looked to lower expectations, stressing that such a complex issue would not be resolved in just one trip. Mazin Alfaqih, a special adviser to Harris for the Northern Triangle region of Central America, acknowledged in a call with reporters that "the U.S. government and foreign assistance alone cannot tackle this problem." The Northern Triangle — Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador — has long suffered from violence and poverty, stemming from U.S. intervention in Central America during the Cold War. Harris has yet to engage meaningfully with Honduras and El Salvador, the two other Northern Triangle countries.

The case could affect thousands of immigrants, many of whom have lived in the United States for years. There are about 400,000 people in the United States with protected status, which prevents deportation and lets them work legally. They sued in federal court, saying that those with lawful status, including Temporary Protected Status recipients, are deemed to have been lawfully admitted, and may apply for permanent residency.

At a news conference with Giammattei, Harris said a U.S. task force would work with local prosecutors to punish corrupt actors in the region. Giammattei defended his own record in fighting corruption, saying he had not been accused of wrongdoing and saying graft was not only a problem faced by politicians. On the immigration front he announced a new processing center for migrants sent back from Mexico and the United States, which could increase capacity. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our borders," she said. She confirmed that the United States would supply half a million COVID-19 doses to Guatemala and provide $26 million to fight the pandemic.

Over the past few months a growing number of Guatemalan migrants have left for the United States, lured by smugglers’ promises of safe passage and access to coronavirus vaccines. But for all its enormous challenges, Guatemala also offers the Biden administration an opportunity to rethink its approach to migration from the region. For too long, U.S. policy has been guided by the assumption that everyone south of the border aspires to make a new life in the United States, and that tackling undocumented immigration requires a unified regional approach. But this approach has done little to stem the myriad drivers of migration from the region. It highlighted the mix of push and pull factors, namely poverty, violence and family reunification, that drive people to leave.

Vice President Kamala Harris visits Guatemala on Monday as part of her effort to address the “root causes” of migration from Central America’s Northern Triangle—which also includes El Salvador and Honduras. Count on lots of glad-handing with politicians, activists from nongovernmental organizations, and slippery businessmen who know a thing or two about political entrepreneurship. For Guatemala that’s big numbers of small and medium-size investors, foreign and domestic, who are necessary for development but are not on board with Ms. Harris because they distrust her agenda. One side, with backers in Washington, applauds land invasions, electricity theft and road blocks in the name of social justice. For the antidevelopment left, in Guatemala and in the American Democratic Party, the rule of law in the developing world is a nuisance.
