But Cuellar on Thursday praised the vice president’s posture on the trip, offering a respite from the more moderate corner of her party as the White House contends with the political fallout from Harris’ remarks.

“I want to thank the vice president for having a clear message: ‘Don’t come,’” Cuellar said. “But we need to couple that with some action and some repercussions.”

Migration is a “push” phenomenon more than anything. These folks are desperate and will only become more so as conditions in their home countries deteriorate. I don’t think Trump would have seen anything different.
