Although several Biden administration officials visited Mexico City on Friday to meet with the Mexican officials and speak about the US-Mexico border security, Kamala Harris was not part of that group, Fox News informed.
The Vice President, who was appointed by Joe Biden in order to manage the response of the United States to the immigrant surge at the US-Mexico border, visited New Jersey instead.
Antony Blinken, the Secretary of State, Alejandro Mayorkas, the Homeland Security Secretary, and Merrick Garland, the US Attorney General, were all part of the high-level talks in Mexico City.
Former US Senator from Colorado Ken Salazar, who is now the US ambassador to Mexico, also attended the top-level talks.
Mayorkas took to Twitter to say that the meeting is a very important new phase in the security partnership between the US and Mexico. He also said that both countries will jointly work towards creating a new framework as a guide and work towards higher security and prosperity for the two countries.
In the meantime, Vice President Kamala Harris visited New Jersey and went to a daycare center located in Montclair State University, and then she visited a vaccination site in Newark in order to promote the agenda of the Biden administration.
Harris last traveled to the southern border in June, when she spent few hours in El Paso, Texas, while she was on her way to California. This was the one and only time she visited the US-Mexico border since she took office.
