The U.S To Provide 300,000 Temporary Work Visas
In today’s blog update, we will be taking a look at the latest developments between Mexico and the U.S government.
Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is ready to visit the White House next month to discuss immigration and to advocate for more U.S. commitments to help deal with the illegal immigration rates.
It has been said that during his visit, the Biden administration will make an offer for 300,000 temporary work visas specifically for Mexican nationals and Central Americans.
These reports have been confirmed by Mexico’s Interior Minister Adan Augusto Lopez in a business meeting detailing that the U.S. government has agreed to divide the number of visas equally to both Mexican and Central Americans, to provide ease to the migration challenges of both countries.
Per the Mexican interior minister Lopez, the American government agreed to provide 300,000 temporary work visas initially, 150,000 will be for Mexicans or for immigrants who are presently in Mexico waiting for the possibility to immigrate to the north. It is expected that the Biden administration will announce these plans during President Obrador’s visit in July.
Lopez further stated during a business meeting in Tijuana, Mexico that socially It’s a high cost, for their country to be a crossing point for migrants, and every day they’re discussing with the U.S government to try to create better conditions.
Tensions arose earlier this month between President Obrador and the Biden administration due to the U.S. government’s decision to not include Nicaragua, Cuba, and Venezuela from participating in the Summit of the Americas because of human rights violations. With this exclusion, Mexican President Obrador refused to attend the Summit, and Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard took his place.
President Obrador’s visit will correspond with the 10th anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, spurring a new debate over U.S. immigration policy.
