President Biden has tasked Vice President Harris with addressing the root causes of mass migration from Central America – but she will not be handling southern border policy in general, a top aide said.
“The Vice President is not doing the border,” a senior advisor to Harris told reporters Friday. “The President asked the vice president to take on the diplomatic efforts with Mexico and …the Northern Triangle to address the root causes of migration.”
The Vice President headed to Connecticut Friday afternoon as part of the administration’s “Help is Here Tour,” to promote the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan recently signed by the president.
