Obrador and Biden's Meeting This Week | Abogado Ernesto

 

Obrador and Biden’s Meeting. PC: Kevin Lamarque, https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/presidents-us-mexico-meet-after-summit-tensions-2022-07-12/.

Obrador and Biden’s meeting this week focused on shared efforts between the two to improve the current immigration situation.

There has been underlying tension between Obrador and Biden. López Obrador pointedly addressed the number of Americans crossing the border to buy gas at lower prices in Mexico. Obrador has seemed resistant to Biden since refusing to attend the Summit of the Americas after Biden decided not to invite Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. However, in spite of all this, he took an overall positive and cheery attitude towards the meeting as a whole.

Biden emphasized that he’s pushing for better opportunities for immigrants, including the granting of more work visas. 

Following the meeting, Biden and Obrador intend to coordinate efforts to ease the border situation and continue to fight for bettering immigration access to the US. Both countries intend to invest in entry ports, crack down on opioid trafficking and organized crime, and push for more green innovations for technologies related to gas and other resources.

“Harris met with Lopez Obrador on Tuesday morning and emphasized the countries’ ‘longstanding partnership’.” (https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/presidents-us-mexico-meet-after-summit-tensions-2022-07-12/. )

Hopefully this friendly meeting between Obrador and Biden can yield tangible results in the months ahead.
