Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Honduras as she leads a delegation to the inauguration of newly elected President Xiomara Castro.
The White House hopes that the new leadership in Honduras will ease some of the migration pressure coming from that region, NPR reported. But Castro’s history and political stance may matter, not only in her own leadership in Honduras, but also in relations with the United States.
“The Vice President’s visit will continue the commitment that she and President-elect Castro made during their December 10 phone call to deepen the partnership between the United States and Honduras and work together to work together. working to promote economic growth, fight corruption and address the root causes of migration,” said Sabrina Singh, deputy press secretary to the vice president, in a statement, as CNN reported.
It is widely suggested that a good relationship with Honduras can help address the root causes of immigration. Since many migrants come from South and Central America and only go through Mexico to reach the US, some say it’s important to work with countries like Honduras to really solve the problem.
“I think it’s an opportunity that we haven’t seen in Honduras for quite some time. And that is an opportunity where the United States must use every tool at its disposal to try to move forward, given the importance of addressing these issues for the good of the United States itself,” said Jason Marczak, Director. Adrienne Arsht Latin senior of the Atlantic Council. American Center, tell CNN.
However, the president-elect has some nefarious connections that could be challenging during her presidency.
CNN reports that she has promised to change Honduras by eliminating corruption in the government and reducing organized crime, which has plagued Honduras for years.
Castro was actually the first lady of Honduras, but her husband was ousted in a coup 12 years ago, CNN reported.

Vice President Castro also has a rough history and background.
First Vice President-elect Salvador Nasralla has a history of making unfriendly remarks about Jews and Israeli, Fox News reported.
In 2020, Nasralla said that “the boss of outgoing President Juan Orlando Hernández is the Israeli government.” He also said that the Jews control the global money supply.

Despite the questionable connections that newly elected President Castro has and the anti-Semitic comments her running mate has made in the past, Harris will attend her inauguration.
