‘Smoke Bomb’: Migrants Say Biden and Harris Aren’t Doing Anything to Fix Immigration, Breaking Promises
“No, in reality, everything is political. And politics doesn’t solve anything. Everything is a smoke bomb. It’s a lie. It’s an illusion.”
The Daily Caller asked migrants apprehended at the Guatemalan-Honduran border their thoughts on the Biden administration’s efforts on immigration and fixing the “root causes” of people leaving their countries.
The migrants see right through Biden and Kamala Harris:
“No, in reality, everything is political. And politics doesn’t solve anything. Everything is a smoke bomb. It’s a lie. It’s an illusion. In Venezuela, right now what we need is help, help that we don’t get. And so what we’re doing right now, we’re not doing it because we want to, we’re not doing it out for fun, it’s because we need it,” one migrant from Venezuela told the DCNF when speaking about the U.S. efforts to solve issues in their home countries.
“To be honest, no,” a migrant from Colombia, Andre, told the DCNF.
Biden put Harris in charge of the border crisis in March 2021, two months after his inauguration.

In July 2021, the White Praise praised Harris in a fact sheet about how America will help Central America tackle the root causes of migration.
Yeah, nothing has happened. The border is still a mess, and Harris is nowhere to be seen.
Andre, the Colombian migrant, fled because the left is making Colombia worse, and his former membership in M-19.
Most of the migrants want to come to America and contribute. They want to work and make money:
“In reality, if we had the resources, and we could live freely in our countries … we wouldn’t be migrating because there’s professional people here,” the migrant from Venezuela added, saying that he’s an engineer and that their group includes a mechanic, another engineer and a police officer. “We’re all professionals. And we’re going through a hard time. We only need resources for our families because we want to give them a better life.”
Thing is, the Biden administration and the left make them think they can just walk across the border and get to gettin’:
The migrants from Venezuela had also been taken off guard by a new Biden administration policy to expel to Mexico illegal migrants from Venezuela, they said. A second migrant from Venezuela who spoke with the DCNF said that if there had been a clear message to migrants before they started their journey, it would have stopped them from coming.
“Our message is that he should have communicated in a better way the date in which we couldn’t continue those routes,” he said. “If they would’ve given us an early warning, and not all of a sudden, there’s already people that were here on their way and the only option that we have is to go back to our country, so through the jungle.”
