Kamala Harris, the border czar and vice president, has published an 18-page report that outlines a strategy for addressing illegal immigration.
In the “cover message,” Harris blames the Trump administration for the recent surge in illegal immigration after explaining that she believes “In Central America, the root causes of migration run deep—and migration from the region has a direct impact on the United States. For that reason, our nation must consistently engage with the region to address the hardships that cause people to leave Central America and come to our border.”
“For decades, our nation has engaged in Central America. Often well-intentioned, the engagement has often not been consistent. And over the last few years, the United States significantly pulled back from work in the region,” the message states.
The administration claims that four short-term solutions are available in the report to stem illegal immigration.
“We will build a coalition of people, organizations, and businesses committed to creating economic opportunity and fostering political will for structural reforms in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras,” the report states.
Biden’s administration believes that they can stem the tide if they work with the private sector to attract investment in the region.
“We will address humanitarian needs from the fall 2020 hurricanes, provide training and finance to jump start the economies after COVID-19 and hurricane devastation and provide critical support to those in need of food assistance. We will focus on education and training for youth,” the report stated.
The Biden Administration is trying to influence the future direction of the region’s politics. It also wants to “Ensure people in this region know about the United States’ commitment to supporting good governance and economic opportunities, security so that they understand how help is on their way to building hope for a better tomorrow at home.” We will clearly communicate to the governments of the region that the United States is interested in being a partner in their success. However, this partnership requires that we all commit to inclusive and transparent democratic governance.
Medium-term solutions are also offered in the report, such as creating “economic opportunity”, promoting “reform”, fighting corruption, fighting “insecurity,” and addressing “climate changes” and improving disaster preparedness.
The report indicates that the administration hopes to have a positive impact on the long-term political and economic outcomes of the region.
A recent article by the Washington Examiner says this below:
More than 1.8 million illegal immigrants are expected to cross the U.S.-Mexico border this year, making it the “worst ever” on record, highlighting President Joe Biden’s failed policies, according to a new forecast.
The projection from Princeton Policy Advisors showed that a high of 1,864,000 illegal immigrants could cross the southwest border based on current trends and past averages.
The report, provided to Secrets, said that would be 250,000 more than the next highest number recorded in 2000.
