Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Mexico and Guatemala amid the ongoing migrant crisis on the southern border, but has no plans to visit the US states affected by the havoc, she revealed Wednesday.

Harris made the announcement while speaking to reporters from the White House ahead of a virtual roundtable she was hosting with experts on the Northern Triangle countries — El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras — after being asked if she planned to visit the border.

“The president has asked [Homeland Security] Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas to address what is going on at the border, and he has been working very hard at that and is showing some progress,” the vice president replied, explaining why she would not be traveling to the region.
