AMLO invites Kamala Harris to visit Mexico to discuss immigration


(April 15, 2021).- President Andrés Manuel López Obrador reported that he invited US Vice President Kamala Harris to visit the states in the southeast of the country, so she can have a better panorama of the current situation there.

“When we spoke on the phone, I invited her to go to Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche, to the southern border states of our country so that she could learn about the experience that we have in supporting rural residents, producers, peasants, ejidatarios, community members, small owners “.

“Let them know about the Sembrando Vida program, I told them about this program, the importance it has, because it has a multiplying effect, it gives work to the communities where people live, the places of origin of people,” AMLO said in his daily morning conference .

The Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, reported yesterday that she plans to visit Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. Harris stated that her country must find a way to achieve economic development in the nations of the Northern Triangle of Central America to stop migration.

In March, US President Joe Biden tasked Harris with leading Washington’s efforts with Mexico and members of the Northern Triangle – El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras – to stem the flow of migrants.

“Our approach is to address root causes and I am looking forward to traveling, hopefully as my first trip, to the Northern Triangle, stopping in Mexico and then going to Guatemala,” Harris commented in a virtual roundtable with experts who offered recommendations on the region.
