Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Vice President Kamala Harris’ comments in Central America this week; saying she was “disappointed” the Biden administration is now telling migrants “do not come” to America.
“This is disappointing to see. First, seeking asylum at any US border is a 100% legal method of arrival. Second, the US spent decades contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America. We can’t help set someone’s house on fire and then blame them for fleeing,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

“The goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home. At the same time, I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the US-Mexico border: Do not come. The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border,” said the Vice President.
