KAMALA HARRIS: Do not come.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

The goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home. At the same time, I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border. Do not come. Do not come.

The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border. There are legal methods by which migration can and should occur. But we, as one of our priorities, will discourage illegal migration. And I believe if you come to our border, you will be turned back.

So let's discourage our friends, our neighbors, our family members, from embarking on what is otherwise an extremely dangerous journey.

LESTER HOLT: Do you have any plans to visit the border?

KAMALA HARRIS: At some point. You know, we are going to the border. We've been to the border. So this whole-- this whole-- this whole thing about the border, we've been to the border. We've been to the border.

LESTER HOLT: You haven't been to the border.

KAMALA HARRIS: And I haven't been to Europe. And I mean, I don't-- I don't understand the point that you're making. I'm not discounting the importance of the border. Do not come. Do not come.

SEAN MORROW: Hey, I'm Sean Morrow, host of the NowThis podcast "Who Is?" You might remember me from those annoying ads who were subjected to at the end of videos for like two years. Who are the people that run the world?

Things have changed a bit since I last saw you. You know, pandemic, insurrection, "Emily in Paris" getting nominated for a Golden Globe. But I'm still trying to figure out, who are the people who run the world? On "Who Is? The Podcast," we examine power through the stories of the people who have it. From mercenary forces to the big businesses controlling your food to a hedge fund manager who basically holds countries for ransom.

To tell these stories, we bring in cool guests, from people you've heard of, like Stacey Abrams, to people you haven't, like law professors digging into police union contracts, and reporters following the money that flows from the donor class to the politicians who supposedly represent all of us. Two seasons-- that's 32 episodes-- are ready for you to binge.

And we're back for season 3, where we'll look at the giant corporations that might ruin weed for everyone. The organizations who ensure police aren't held accountable for misconduct. And the wealthy interests who are fighting to keep America sick and unhealthy. So they can, you know, make money off it.

Look for "Who Is? The Podcast" on my iHeart Radio, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. That's "Who Is? The Podcast."
