US President Joe Biden held a video conference with his Mexican counterpart Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Friday. The two leaders talked to each other about “invisible” migration flows at the border between the two countries.
According to the White House, the conversation lasted more than 50 minutes. “The conversation was about immigration and what steps should be taken to reduce immigration along the border,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
“The tone of the conversation was very constructive,” Psaki said. Joe Biden emphasized the will to cooperate during the conversation. In doing so, he opposed the less friendly approach of his predecessor, Donald Trump, and is still heard in the White House.
Addressing illegal immigration is high on the US government’s agenda. Rising immigration numbers threaten to become a tough topic for Democrats in the November midterm elections.
