Mexico’s President Blames Biden for Border Crisis


The president of Mexico blamed President Joe Biden for the surge in migrants coming to the U.S.-Mexico border.

The comments: Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador made the comments at a Tuesday press conference, saying “expectations were created that with the government of President Biden there would be a better treatment of migrants.” 

  • “And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so,” he added.
  • The comments echo Obrador’s statements to the press in March, when he said migrants consider Biden “the migrant president.” 
  • “We need to work together to regulate the flow, because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next,” he said.

The border crisis: The White House has been evasive regarding the ongoing border crisis brought on by the surge of migrants at the southern border.

  • Biden’s critics have blamed his administration for reversing the tough enforcement policies of former President Donald Trump.
  • “They are going to destroy our country if we don’t do something about it,” Trump himself said in a recent Fox News appearance regarding the massive influx.
