Mexican president asks U.S. to grant visas to 10M Hispanic migrants and $20B in cash to help curb illegal immigration
By Belle Carter // Jan 12, 2024

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, also known by his initials AMLO, revealed that he asked U.S. authorities to grant visas to at least 10 million Hispanic migrants who have worked for more than 10 years in the country.

In a regular press conference last week, the president said that he also demanded President Joe Biden's administration pay regional states $20 billion in exchange for helping stem illegal immigration. AMLO added that the sanctions on Cuba and Venezuela should be lifted too since he partially blames them for this process.

Moscow-based American political analyst Andrew Korybko commented that if Biden convinces the Republicans to go along with the said proposal to grant work visas, then the foreigners would be able to apply for a green card. "This could lead to the imposition of one-party rule by 2032 if those new citizens in battleground states vote Democrat as expected," he said. Korybko further pointed out that should the U.S. give in to the demand, it would allow these migrants to apply for citizenship with full voting rights after five years. In fact, Pew Research Center cited U.S. Census Bureau data from 2020 to report last November that at least 1.6 million illegals live in Texas and 900,000 in Florida, which could have serious implications for forthcoming elections if they are legalized.

The Substack author also mentioned that it was predicted in mid-November 2020 that "Biden's America would be a dystopian hellhole" because "amnesty and open borders will revolutionize the electoral landscape" by paving the way to one-party rule, which could then lead to mass disarmament and more state-backed racist violence. He added that the first step in this plan is to place all illegal immigrants on the path to U.S. citizenship, which is precisely what AMLO just proposed amidst the U.S.'s fierce debate over its de facto open southern border.

AMLO's proposal came roughly a week after he met with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Mexico City, where they requested that Mexico boost its assistance in stopping illegal immigration. According to a senior administration official, AMLO "has a very ambitious agenda. For some of these things, we would need Congress to act." Obrador has proven to be more than willing to challenge U.S. politicians on immigration issues. He even picked a fight with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over one of that state's new immigration laws last month.

"The Texas governor acts that way because he wants to be the Republican vice-presidential candidate and wants to win popularity with these measures," Lopez Obrador said in late December. "He is not going to win anything. On the contrary, he is going to lose support because there are a lot of Mexicans in Texas, a lot of migrants."

Johnson urges Biden to use Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy

Before AMLO's request, House Speaker Mike Johnson already blamed Biden for the migrant crisis, saying that the POTUS has the authority to significantly reduce the record number of border crossings without action from Congress but refuses to do so. "On his first day in office, Biden came in and issued executive orders that began this chaos," Johnson told "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan. "Remain in Mexico is one of them."

The said policy, officially called the Migrant Protection Protocols, was implemented by former President Donald Trump in early 2019 to deter migration via the U.S.-Mexico border. It required migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. to wait in Mexico until their court dates. Biden ended the policy soon after taking office, saying it was inhumane. After months of legal battles, federal courts ordered the government to reinstate it. Then in June 2022, the Supreme Court ruled that Biden could end the program and it is no longer being implemented.

When asked about the need for logistical and financial support at the border that can only be provided through acts of Congress, Johnson said a top U.S. Border Patrol official told him the situation was comparable to an open fire hydrant. "He said, 'I don't need more buckets, I need the flow to be turned off.' And the way you do that is with policy changes," Johnson said. "We're just asking the White House to apply common sense, and they seem to be completely uninterested in doing so."

Johnson also said the Biden administration "could end catch and release." As expected, the Mexican government has issued statements rejecting any proposed revival of Remain in Mexico.

Meanwhile, the White House and a bipartisan group of senators have been negotiating a package that would make substantial changes to immigration and border security laws. The negotiations come as Republicans demand harsher policies in exchange for more aid to Ukraine. has more stories related to Biden's migration policies.
