"Harris tells Guatemalan president that migration is a top priority, after he blames US for surge. Vice President Kamala Harris told the president of Guatemala on Monday that tackling migration is a top priority for both countries, as she made her first visit to the region -- and Guatemala’s president blamed the US for the migrant surge at the border.
Guatemalan President Giammattei said that the two "are not on the same side of the coin" on the issue. "The message changed too: 'We're going to reunite families, we’re going to reunite children,'" he told CBS News. "The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States." "We asked the United States government to send more of a clear message to prevent more people from leaving," he said."
