Mexico Seeks Amnesty In Exchange For Border Aid

According to a report from NBC News, the current Biden administration has started to depend more on Mexico to curb the record-high numbers of illegal aliens entering the United States. Both U.S. and Mexican officials have commented about Mexico making a list of demands for the United States, which includes granting amnesty to some 10 million immigrants.

Since the beginning of Biden’s term, there have been records broken for the number of illegal crossings at the southern border, which was broken again last month. The administration’s previous attempt to thin out the amount of illegal immigrants coming over has only led to a temporary decline.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly traveled to Mexico in December, asking for their assistance. Mexico’s president, Lopex Obrador called the White House on Friday, asking for approval of a $20 billion initiative that would be sent to Caribbean and Latin American countries.

It stipulates sanctions against Venezuela to end, eliminating the blockade in Cuba, and granting 10 million Hispanic immigrants full legal amnesty to live and work in the U.S. A senior Biden official responded to Orbrador’s request, calling it a “very ambitious agenda. For some of these things, we would need Congress to act. We share the vision that we need to lift up the region.”

U.S. negotiators expressed their desire for Mexico to increase law enforcement along their southern border with Guatemala, and for them to deport more of the illegal immigrants coming into Mexico, who are on their way to the United States.

Both countries have committed to another meeting in Washington later this month, and both officials feel that Mexico holds a considerable amount of weight in the negotiations. Obrador’s administration has also expressed its outspoken hope for Joe Biden to win his re-election campaign in November.

The Biden administration’s growing relationship and reliance on Mexico to handle the surge in illegal immigration raises some serious concerns. With demands like amnesty being blindly given to millions, it raises security concerns that may not be in the best interest of the American people.

Not to mention the record amount of illegal border crossings and the administration’s previous failed attempts to come up with a solution leaves doubt about Biden’s ability to solve the problem.

The upcoming meeting in Washington leaves many worried that the U.S. might be giving too much leverage to Mexico, which puts the well-being and interests of Americans at risk.
