The law that ignores the reasons for migration is a dead letter

Any immigration law that ignores the causes of the phenomenon and does not address it is “condemned to be a dead letter,” President Andrés Manuel López Obrador warned his American counterpart, Joe Biden.

During the phone conversation held by the two leaders this Saturday, where the central topic was migration, the Mexican repeated the head of the proposal of the White House Mexico to solve the issue, where, among others, he suggested that the Mexicans who have been there for more than five years, who regularly live and work honestly in the United States, that a budget of 20 billion dollars per year will be approved to support the poor countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, and that the sanctions on Venezuela will be suspended to reduce migratory flows and increase the economic blockade of Cuba. .

In a statement released this evening by the Presidency of the Republic, it is reported that López Obrador emphasizes that the two countries are free and sovereign, so that they can determine their own policies regarding migration.

“However, with the sincerity that characterizes us, we express to President Biden that any law approved on this matter that does not take into account the causes of the phenomenon of immigration and does not respond to it is doomed to be a dead letter. ”

In his proposals, the Mexican also stated that the United States continues the program currently implemented to accept migrants through legal channels, not choosing to build walls or close the border, “because it does not solve the causes of migration or solve the problem. “This is pure political-electoral propaganda.”

The Mexican president’s proposal also includes combating drug trafficking and consumption of chemical drugs such as fentanyl; regulating the sale and export of arms from the United States to Mexico; developing a joint development plan to promote industrialization and trade within the framework of T-MEC; continuing to strengthen North America as a region of the world; and defining a strategy for the economic integration of the entire continent.

As well as reaffirming the commitment to maintain relations of cooperation, friendship, and respect with the respective sovereignties.

“The talk was very useful, in mutual interest, inspired by the principles of good neighbor policy, friendship, and cooperation,” said the Tabasco native.
