Kamala Harris Headed to Honduras to Discuss ‘Corruption, Root Causes of Migration’

Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Honduras next week to attend the Inauguration of incoming President Xiomara Castro. The two leaders will discuss a series of issues including “corruption” and the “root causes of migration.”

“The vice president’s visit will further the commitment she and President-elect Castro made … to deepen the partnership between the United States and Honduras and work together to advance economic growth, combat corruption, and address the root causes of migration,” Harris’ deputy press secretary, Sabrina Singh, wrote in a statement.

“Until speaking with Castro on Dec. 10 in a phone call, Harris had not had direct contact with any Honduran leaders, despite leading American efforts to curb migration from the region. The number of people stopped at the U.S.-Mexico border last year reached record levels, with many migrants beginning their journeys in Central America,” reports the Los Angeles Times.

The Vice President was handpicked by Joe Biden two months after taking office to tackle the immigration crisis occurring along the US-Mexico border.

The President rescinded Donald Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policy just days after his Inauguration. The decision resulted in a massive influx of refugees from Central America, Haiti, and West Africa.

    Let’s see if Castro even takes office before we start making deals or policy with her. I bet there’s going to be some upheaval on the 27th that reeks of glowormy involvement and dictatorial despotism.

  2. I don’t understand why people like Tim Pool keep saying that Joe Biden “picked” Kamala Harris to be his VP. Next he’ll be saying that the 2020 election was totally legit. There are many, many black, female politicians that hate the American people. It makes no sense that he would pick the one that called him a racist, bigot during a presidential debate.

    A source on the inside reported that she brought along “a few extra pairs of kneepads,” stating it was her intention to “show these amateurs how to get places in politics.”

    Makes sense. She is by far the expert on the subject of corruption.

  5. Matt_w says:

    Well, she knows plenty about corruption. From her many years of experience.

    Coyotes? oh ok. So what, people are riding on the backs of coyotes to get across the border. They’re freaking animals and can barely hold a child on their back.

    It’s called Mexico. As long as cartels run the cyotes and as long as the border is wide open- nothing changes.

    “Tackle” the immigration problem? She hasn’t even taken the field. Honduras/Castro ? Corruption? Are they for it or against it ? If they are fighting corruption, it must be freedom they consider corruption. I haven’t checked the definition…today.
