Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Psaki Defends Harris’s ‘Do Not Come’ Warning to Migrants in Guatemala” – below is their description.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday sought to clarify comments made by Vice President Kamala Harris during her first foreign trip to Guatemala and Mexico.
Harris received some criticism Monday from members of her own party when she delivered a direct message while in Guatemala to those considering fleeing their homes for the U.S. “Do not come,” Harris said, emphasizing the danger of the trek.
Psaki said what Harris was “simply conveying is that there’s more work to be done.”
“It’s still a dangerous journey, as we’ve said many times from here and from many forums before. And we need more time to get the work done to to ensure that asylum processing is where it should be,” she said.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
