Judges will rule on his appeal against his 2017 conviction for war crimes in Bosnia that judges in The Hague said were “amongst the most heinous known to humankind”. Among the most notorious was the massacre of some 8,000 Muslim boys and men in Srebrenica in 1995 — a genocide, the court decided, orchestrated by military leader Mladic and his political comrade Radovan Karadzic. The slaughter — the worst single atrocity in Europe since World War II — led media across the world to dub him “the butcher of Bosnia”.

"Most people do not want to leave the place where they grew up," loved ones, and people with whom they share a language and culture, Harris said.

But they often do so "either because they are fleeing some harm or because they simply cannot satisfy their basic needs by staying at home," she added.

Regardless of their reasons for leaving, Harris urged would-be migrants not to make the journey: "Do not come" to the United States, she told them.

"The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our borders... If you come to our border, you will be turned back," she said.

Instead, she proposed that the United States and Guatemala "work together" to find solutions to "long-standing problems."

Critically, people must be given "a sense of hope that help is on the way," said Harris.

"It must be coupled with relationships of trust. It must be coupled with tangible outcomes, in terms of what we do as leaders to convince people that there is a reason to be hopeful about their future and the future of their children."

- Create conditions -

Giammattei said Guatemala wanted to cooperate "to create conditions in Guatemala so that they (young people) can find here the hope they do not have today."

Harris announced a joint task force on smuggling and human trafficking, a women's empowerment program, and an anti-corruption task force to help Central American law enforcement prosecute cases.

She rejected Republican criticism of the fact that neither she nor Biden had visited the US southern border, saying she had come to Central America to discuss matters in a "way that is significant and has real results" rather than making "grand gestures."

Within hours of the inauguration in January, Biden’s White House opened America’s borders to the world — not simply to job seekers and gang members from Mexico and Central America, but to varieties of illegal migrants from all over the globe – from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Virtually anyone who could get to Mexico was admitted into the United States without a visa.

GUATEMALA CITY (AFP) - US Vice-President Kamala Harris said Monday (June 7) the United States hopes to work with Guatemala to address the root causes of illegal migration by creating "a sense of hope" in the poverty- and violence-plagued country, on her first trip abroad since taking office. Meeting President Alejandro Giammattei in Guatemala City, Harris said reducing undocumented migration from Central to North America was a priority for US President Joe Biden's administration.

Harris, who later flew to Mexico to meet President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Tuesday, said she had told Giammattei the United States would send 500,000 coronavirus vaccines to Guatemala.

Her trip is part of the Biden administration's promise to implement a more humane immigration policy after the hardline approach taken by his predecessor Donald Trump.

But the Republican opposition has accused Biden of creating a "crisis" on the country's southern border by failing to rein in migration.

Congress must still decide whether to approve the $861 million Biden has asked for next year as part of a $4 billion plan to tackle the issue.

American officials have in recent days called on Central American countries to defend democracy and fight corruption in a bid to improve conditions at home and thus eliminate a driving factor for migration.

Asked Monday about Guatemala's anti-corruption stance, Giammattei said: "How many cases of corruption have I been accused of? I can give you the answer: Zero."

Tucker Carlson: Americans should apply for asylum in El Salvador, it's safer than Baltimore and Chicago .
Tucker Carlson reacts to Kamala Harris' visit to Latin America and looks at crime rates in the United States and El Salvador.You finally get to Guatemala and discover that, actually, the people there detest you. They couldn’t care less about all the glass ceilings you say you’ve shattered. They’re not impressed by your political science degree or the fact you once chaired the Black Law Students Association in college. They find you phony and annoying. In fact, they strongly prefer the orange man you replaced. At least he was funny. They tell you to buzz off and go home. Get out of here and don’t come back. Imagine how that must feel if you’re Kamala Harris.
