​​U.S. and Mexico Reach Agreement on Stricter Border Policies

Last week, Biden’s homeland security advisor, Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, met with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to discuss border migration issues. The two governments reached an agreement allowing U.S. authorities to deport non-Mexican migrants who cross into the U.S. without authorization. The Mexican government will continue receiving returned Haitians, Nicaraguans, Venezuelans, and Cuban migrants once COVID-19-related restrictions end on May 11. Sending migrants back to Mexico is part of the U.S.’s efforts to deter migrants from crossing the border. Mexico has otherwise been absent in the rollout of the Biden administration’s plans to address the end of Title 42, which was released at the end of last month.
