US President Joe Biden (78) has given his Vice President Kamala Harris (56) her first real job – and it’s a really difficult one. Harris is supposed to solve the migration crisis on the southern border, reports US media with reference to anonymous sources in political circles.
She is supposed to manage diplomatic relations with the Central American states of El Salvador, Guatemala and Hondruas – the so-called “Northern Triangle”.
Harris wie Biden
Harris is now trying what Biden has already tried himself. In 2014 and 2015, as Vice President Barack Obama (59), he was asked to assume responsibility for diplomatic relations in the three countries. At that time, a large number of young people immigrated to the USA from there without their parents.
“Harris is expected to enter into a strategic partnership with these countries based on shared values and respect,” a source is quoted as saying.
Is the vice president successful?
Harris’ attempts are seen as an effort by the new government to address the root causes of the escape from these areas. In particular, it is violence and poverty that lead many residents – especially minors – of these states to want to migrate to the USA. So far, Harris had not received such a key assignment from Biden. Instead, she was a kind of “equal partner”, as CNN puts it. She accompanied him on many occasions, especially in the context of the corona crisis.
In the past few weeks, the pressure on the Biden government had grown in view of the rapidly increasing number of migrants on the US southern border. The most pressing issue at the moment is the accommodation of the many unaccompanied minor migrants. (vof)
