(ReliableNews.org) – In March 2021, President Joe Biden put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis. The new veep went on to oversee the largest influx of illegals in modern history. The president also put her in charge of passing voting rights legislation – she failed at that task, too. Now, she’s reportedly looking for another shot at success.
On Thursday, January 27, Harris traveled to Honduras for the presidential inauguration of Xiomara Castro, the first female ever elected for the position. According to reports, the Biden administration is hoping to make the new president a key ally in its fight against poverty in Central America, which has sent hordes of migrants to the US.
Our relationship with Honduras is an important one. Today I met with President Xiomara Castro to discuss deepening our cooperation across a broad range of issues, including addressing the root causes of migration, combatting corruption, and expanding economic opportunity. pic.twitter.com/fGBfHSWqSs

Harris previously tried to form relationships with Guatemala and El Salvador, but the leaders of those nations have refused to cooperate in a meaningful way. El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele has snubbed the administration and insulted Biden repeatedly on social media. He even started using Bitcoin as a legal tender in his country as an attempt to move away from the US dollar. The rift has been especially painful for Harris and Biden because of America’s previously solid relationship with the Central American nation.
However, the US administration might have found a new ally in Castro. She seems willing to form a bond with Harris. During the inauguration, she acknowledged the vice president’s presence and said she would fight against corruption. The two met after the inauguration and Harris said she was optimistic about a future relationship. Now, it’s just up to the Biden admin to not mess it up.
