Initiatives of the leftist president include “expanding” their social program Semindo Vida in Central America, through which financial assistance is provided to registered producers.
“This will allow us to order migratory flows. In March, this situation overflowed,” López Obredor said.
Central Americans in the Sembrando Vida program will be entitled to temporary work visas after the first three years and, after three more years, according to Lózs Obredor’s proposal, can apply for US citizenship.
In light of the increase in migrant flows, last Wednesday, the Mexican president urged the United States Congress to approve the $ 861 million budget requested by Biden to tackle poverty in Central America.
More than 172,000 unspecified migrants were arrested in March on the United States border, an increase of 71% a month, and Highest level in 15 years.
