Vice President Kamala Harris made her way to Latin America late Sunday to meet with Guatemalan and Mexican leaders to discuss migration. Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei, who meets with her Monday, described Harris as a straight-talking, detailed-oriented leader who concentrates on the long-standing reasons that people are leaving his country. His goal is for U.S. lawmakers to create stricter laws against traffickers and says Guatemala is ready to apprehend them. According to Giammattei, Harris is open to the idea and should be announcing plans for Justice Department prosecutors to collaborate with Guatemalan authorities to bring action against drug traffickers and other transnational crimes.
