As the immigration crisis on the southern border of the United States grows, we now learn that Mexico prefers the immigration policies that former President Donald Trump enforced instead of Joe Biden’s policies.
“The Biden administration is searching for answers on how to handle the current border crisis, which has seen the highest number of illegal immigrants at the U.S. southern border in the last 20 years, according to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and a senior official with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. President Joe Biden nullified many of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, but Mexican officials say that the previous administration’s tough stance on illegal immigration helped curb migrants from Central and South America from making the journey north,” according to Blaze News. [emphasis added]
“The New York Times reported, ‘The Biden administration’s appeal to do more against migration has put Mexico in a difficult position. While Mr. Trump strong-armed Mexico into militarizing the border, some Mexican officials argue that his harsh policies may have at times helped lessen their load by deterring migrants from attempting to make the journey north… [emphasis added]
“In January, migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras issued a statement on behalf of migrants traveling to the U.S. in a caravan, which demanded the Biden administration to ‘honor its commitments.’ ‘We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,’ the statement read. ‘We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.’
“Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador called Biden the ‘migrant president,’ adding that so many illegal immigrants ‘feel they’re going to reach the United States.'” [emphasis added]
