“On May 7, Vice President Kamala Harris will meet virtually with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who will be joined by Secretary of Foreign Relations Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon and Secretary of Economy Tatiana Clouthier Carrillo,” Vice President Kamala Harris office said in a statement on Saturday.
“This meeting will deepen the partnership between our countries to achieve the common goals of prosperity, good governance, and addressing the root causes of migration.”
Obrador blamed President Biden for the migrant surge in late March.
“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,” said Obrador.
On April 14, Harris declared that she would travel travel to Guatemala and Mexico as part of her new role in “dealing with root causes in the Northern Triangle. The Northern Triangle of Central America is made of three Central American countries, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
“I have been asked to lead the issue of dealing with root causes in the Northern Triangle, similar to what the then-Vice President did many years ago,” Harris said. “But I will tell you these are issues that aren’t going to be addressed overnight.”
