Mexico urged the U.S. to increase investment in Central America

According to Foreign Minister Ebrard, without this, the flows of migrants heading to the United States are unlikely to decrease.

The United States must increase investment in Central America if it wants to reduce the record level of migration to the north, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said.

A record number of migrants have passed through Mexico towards the U.S. this year, driven by the economic downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic and hoping for a more favorable immigration policy under U.S. President Joe Biden.

“The U.S. should invest more in Central America than it did; there’s no doubt about that,” Ebrard told Mexican radio when asked about Mexico’s prospects as a barrier to migrants.

“Without such investments, if the United States does not support Central America, it is difficult to imagine that the ongoing migration flows will decrease,” Ebrard added.

In a recent letter to Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Biden noted that the United States had provided $600 million in aid to the countries of the Northern Triangle: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras over the past year.
