Pence to Central Americans: "If you can't come legally, don't come at all"
Vice President Mike Pence delivered a message on Tuesday "to the people of Central America," while speaking with Brazilian President Michel Temer on the issue of immigration: "If you can't come legally, don't come at all."
Why it matters: This comes on the heels of a heated week of the U.S. immigration debate, specifically the Trump administration "zero-tolerance" policy that has resulted in the separation of families at the southern border.
Temer has criticized the administration over the policy, reports the Hill, and said it has led to the separation of multiple Brazilian children at the U.S. border.
"This is an extremely sensitive issue in the eyes of the Brazilian society," Temer said at today's press conference.
