WATCH: Harris says that “one of my areas of focus” is the “root causes of migration”

Speaking Monday with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Vice President Kamala Harris saidthat  “one of my areas of focus” is the “root causes of migration”

“We are going to talk about and work together,” Harris said “and again, I want to thank Chairman Ruiz for the work that we are going to do together as it relates to my — one of my areas of focus, which is the Northern Triangle and looking at how we can address the root causes of migration and work together in a way that is a continuation of the work we’ve already begun and the progress we’ve already seen around bringing federal agencies together to enhance their focus or renew their focus in that region, ranging from the Department of Agriculture, to Secretary of Commerce and hosting a Virtual Trade Mission, to the work that we are doing to bring American foundations in to renew their interest in the region and increase their capacity to support the region.”
