It may come as a surprise, but the left-wing government of Mexico is in its own words; “worried the new U.S. administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime.”
This comes after almost 100,000 migrants were detained at the U.S.-Mexico border in February 2021. Breaking all records since February 2006.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said about Biden
“They see him as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to reach the United States.” “We need to work together to regulate the flow because this business can’t be tackled from one day to the next.”
In a report by Reuters, the Mexican drug cartels are; “diversifying methods of smuggling and winning clients as they eye U.S. measures that will ‘incentivize migration.’”
According to Mexican aurtorities, the following Biden policies are driving the immigration wave: “support for victims of gangs and violence, streamlining of the legalization process, and suspension of Trump-era accords that deported people to Central America.”
Reuters says that from day one of the Biden administration, the drug cartels are showing “unprecedented” levels of sophistication in their criminal activities. This includes “briefing clients on the latest immigration rules, using technology to outfox authorities, and disguising smuggling operations as travel agencies.” Reuters said.
In a shocking revelation, the report learned that cartels are telling migrants to bring children with them as it makes it easier to apply for asylum. It is no wonder that child trafficking cases have skyrocketed.
The Mexican authorities also warned that “there could be a significant influx in migrants from outside the region – the Caribbean, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East – as coronavirus-led border restrictions begin easing.”

Rep. Michael McCaul, a member of the Homeland Security Committee raised this issue during a recent Fox News interview:
“President Biden says he wants us to be humane, he’s actually created a humanitarian crisis, these poor children, they get trafficked all the way up that dangerous route,” he said. “And now we don’t have enough detention space to put them in and then you get the COVID crisis down there as well. I think, they created this Biden border crisis, they need to fix it.”
McCaul said, “I predict this, and by summer, you’re going to see as my governor just said, that probably, you know, somewhere around a million people trying to get into this country, illegally.”
