We can potentially reduce the reason that they have to flee. There is short-term what we need to do, which to is to have a robust approach to processing asylum claims, so that we give people a meaningful process by which they can tell their stories and describe the harm they’re fleeing” Harris said.

She ended by stating “So there are many things that must be done, that are both around prevention in the long term but also addressing the current issue, which is a humanitarian issue, and requires a humanitarian response.

That’s not what we’ve seen.

We’ve seen an administration that is engaged in a very punitive approach to people who are vulnerable and are seeking help from us as a country.
