Criticism from Republicans of Kamala Harris’ Guatemala trip
United States Vice President Kamala Harris sent a message to illegal migrants during her visit to Guatemala: If they come to the U.S., they will be turned away and sent back. However, these remarks have been criticized by many Republicans who feel they are not effective enough.
Confronting illegal immigration is a major issue for Republicans. They accuse the Biden administration of opening the borders, thereby allowing a flood of illegal migrants into the country. Harris’ remarks were therefore perceived as too weak and as emboldening illegal immigrants.
In contrast, the Democratic Party accuses Republicans of making racist and xenophobic speeches that only exacerbate the situation. So the political battle over the issue of illegal migration will continue to be fought with fierce debate in the U.S.
- Republicans criticize Kamala Harris’ remarks on illegal migration
