Our Backyard Is On Fire
Vice President Kamala Harris made her first international trip to Guatemala and Mexico to address the root cause of undocumented migration.
One of the serious problems is armed violence according to the NGO, Doctors Without Borders. 62% of migrants arriving at the U.S. southern border said they were exposed to a violent situation during the two years prior to leaving their home country. According to the Mexican government, at least 200,000 guns are trafficked from the U.S. to Mexico each year.
The agenda of Vice President Harris’s visit is focused on economic development, climate change, food insecurity and strengthening the rule of law.
We urge President Biden to pay more attention to economic issues. If the local people have hope and a future, they might not take a big risk to come to America.
Even today we are still facing a money challenge of our own. But still millions of people around the world still want to come to America to seek the American dream.
Time is very critical. Right now our backyard has caught on fire. We need to give them help. This is the only way we can improve our undocumented migration.
