In Brazil, Pence Warns Central Americans Away from US

BRASILIA – Visiting US Vice President Mike Pence used a joint press conference on Tuesday with Brazil’s Michel Temer to warn Central Americans from trying to enter the United States illegally.

Pence, who arrived in Brasilia on Tuesday at the start of a Latin American tour that will also take him to Ecuador and Guatemala, addressed the “problems” that illegal immigration causes for the United States.

Addressing Central Americans, he said: “Don’t risk your lives or the lives of your children by trying to come to the United States on the road run by drug smugglers and human traffickers. If you can’t come legally, don’t come at all.”

The US immigration crisis also affects the South American country, as some 50 Brazilian children are among the thousands of youngsters who remain separated from their families as a result of President Donald Trump decision to start criminally prosecuting undocumented migrants.

Temer said that he spoke to Pence about the subject, describing it as an “extremely sensitive issue in the eyes of the Brazilian society.”

He also said that the two men agreed to “work together toward finding a solution” to “quickly reunite the families” even offering his country’s cooperation to bring them back to Brazil.
