By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador says that the change in U.S. policy will not prompt an increase in migrants at the border.
U.S. authorities are preparing for a surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border as Title 42 expires on May 11.
According to Reuters, this policy allowed U.S. authorities to rapidly expel migrants to Mexico without the chance to seek asylum.
Now, U.S. law enforcement officials are preparing for the possible arrival of tens of thousands of migrants since those restrictions will end.
But, Lopez Obrador says that Mexico is working to inform migrants about U.S. permits and visas that they can request from their home countries.
“We think migrant flows will not increase, because another option, an alternative, is opening up,” Lopez Obrador said.
Since this year, a new program will allow up to 360,000 Venezuelans, Haitians, Cubans and Nicaraguans to request humanitarian parole from their home countries.
