Biden’s visit to Guatemala to address the number of illegal immigrants entering the US from that country turned into a mixed message. After meeting with Central American leaders Biden says:
We do intend, and everyone agreed, it is necessary to put them back in the hands of a parent in the country from which they came.
Then, later on in his statement he indicated that some children will be able to stay in the US:
We’re sending immigration judges, attorneys to represent these young people and families with young people, and asylum officers. They have a right under our law to make the case — make the case that we’re here because we’re avoiding persecution. We’re avoiding something will physically affect our safety.
