By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Tuesday, Homeland Security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall met with Mexican President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and discussed new immigration policies in an effort to stem illegal border crossings.
According to the Associated Press, the officials agreed on a 5-point plan.
With the agreement, Mexico will continue to accept migrants from Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba and Nicaragua who are turned away at the border.
In addition, up to 100,000 individuals from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador who have family in the U.S. will be eligible to live and work there.
The United States is also opening up foreign centers in Guatemala and Colombia for those seeking asylum and heading to the U.S.-Mexico border.
Tens of thousands of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border had been turned away using the COVID-19 restrictions, however, those restrictions will lift on May 11.
Therefore, border officials are preparing for the influx of migrants since even with the restrictions, data showed record number of migrants crossing the border.
