Reuters: Mexico rejects US plan to build a wall on a new section of the border
In the United States, the problem with the constant increase in the number of illegal migrants from Mexico is gaining momentum. At the same time, Washington will most likely not be able to solve it in the foreseeable future. At least diplomatically.
As reported by Reuters, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador rejected the US government's plan to build a wall on a new section of the border in Starr County, Texas. The issue was discussed during recent negotiations between the Mexican leader and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
The material says that even before the above-mentioned meeting, Lopez Obrador called the initiative of the White House administration a “step back.”
However, he did not change his position even after a conversation with American officials.
- said the Mexican leader during the negotiations.
It is worth noting that the problem with illegal migration and rising crime in the States has indeed become a real challenge for the Biden administration. At the same time, former US President Donald Trump more than once accused the current American leader and the Democratic Party for the failure of immigration policy and refusal to build a wall on the border with Mexico.
