Is The Biden Administration Trying To Have It Both Ways On Immigration?



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Suyapa Portillo about how the Biden administration is trying to have it both ways on immigration.

When Vice President Kamala Harris recently traveled to Central America, she delivered a strongly worded statement to the people of Guatemala telling them not to travel to the United States. Harris came under strong criticism for refusing to acknowledge why people flee their home countries in the first place. Sonali's guest writes, “Rather than grappling with the root causes, the US government continues to view Central America as a source of cheap labor.”

Suyapa Portillo is an associate professor at Pitzer College and author of Roots of Resistance: A Story of Gender, Race, and Labor on the North Coast of Honduras, which focuses on the working-class culture of resistance in Honduras.
