This week Vice President Kamala Harris travels to Guatemala and Mexico to meet with governmental officials and outline the Biden administration’s efforts to remedy the “root causes” of mass migration from Central America to the U.S. This will be the Vice President’s first international trip. She traveled first to Guatemala where she pledged hundreds of thousands of coronavirus vaccine doses, $310 million in regional humanitarian aid, and a $4 billion long-term plan to boost development and security across Central America. She is also expected to discuss battling corruption and upholding democratic norms. In Mexico, she will meet with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to discuss the expansion of immigration enforcement cooperation with the U.S. as part of a regional approach to managing migration.
