Where does Mexico’s new president stand on border, immigration, Trump?

(KARAH RUCKER)

MEXICO HAS ELECTED A NEW PRESIDENT.

CLAUDIA SHEINBAUM.

SHE COMES FROM THE SAME POLITICAL PARTY AS HER PRESECUTOR –

PRESIDENT ANDRES MANUEL LOPEZ OBRADOR.

THAT MEANS THAT ITS POLITICAL IDEEOLOGY AND POLICIES WILL ACCURATELY MIRROR WHAT ALREADY EXISTS.

THIS IS WHAT THE NEWLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF MEXICO SAID ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL ABOUT HER STANCE ON IMMIGRATION AND THE US BORDER WITH MEXICO.

MIGRANTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD COME TO THE US THROUGH MEXICO.

SHEINBAUM SAYS DELAYING IMMIGRATION ACCESS –

STARTS WITH INVESTING IN THE COUNTRIES WHERE PEOPLE ARE LEAVING.

BY HELPING THE ECONOMIES OF POOR COUNTRIES –

SHEINBAUM SAYS THEIR PEOPLE DO NOT NEED TO FLEE ON THE BASIS OF NECESSITY.

SHEINBAUM SAYS TO DO THAT –

THE US MUST DO MORE.

PROPOSING THAT THE US COULD USE SOME OF ITS MILITARY FUNDS –

TO FUND THE COUNTRIES, MIGRANTS FLEE.

HERE SHE IS ASKED IN A RECENT INTERVIEW HOW SHE WOULD REDUCE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

(CLAUDIA SHEINBAUM)

“So to the extent that there is development in Central America and in other countries that unfortunately have many people having to leave for the United States for economic reasons, the long-term view is that there needs to be investment and support in those areas. So if some of what is earmarked for war investments in the US were earmarked for peace investments, we would be talking about a natural decline in migration.”

(KARAH RUCKER)

SHEINBAUM ALSO SAYS THE US NEEDS IMMIGRATION TO HELP THE LABOR SHORTAGE.

SHE SAYS SHE IS AGAINST THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BORDER WALL –

SAYING THAT WOULD NOT LEAD TO A BETTER RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.

BUT TELLS WHETHER IT’S BIDEN OR TRUMP WHO WINS IN 2024 –

BOTH OPTIONS WOULD BE GOOD FOR MEXICO.

(CLAUDIA SHEINBAUM)

“I think it will be good whether President Biden or President Trump wins. We have very strong economic integration with the United States. We are now the most important trading partner and that requires a good relationship.”
