“Illegal migration is unacceptable” the President of the United States said and he invited the other countries of the Americas to work on more effective actions to curb the problem. “We will secure our borders, including through innovative and coordinated actions with our regional partners.”
Biden spoke about some challenges in the region that must be faced, such as the difficulties and the needs of certain communities. He stated that addressing the problems that put thousands of people in a vulnerable situation could prevent them from deciding to leave their home countries.
Families without options = illegal immigration
“All of these factors are contributing to a large increase in migration flows throughout our hemisphere, with too many people feeling that they have no options available to support themselves and their families,” the president added.
In view of the situation, Biden explained that the United States and several countries in the region have been working on the immigration issue for months. “In the months leading up to this summit, countries have made significant and concrete commitments to address these challenges. And the United States is also trying to do its part,” he added.
An innovative way of dealing with illegal immigration
On Friday, June 10, within the framework of the Summit of the Americas, officials are expected to release a new joint immigration declaration that they have said will present an innovative way of dealing with the illegal immigration situation in the continent.
“On Friday, we will also come together to… launch the Los Angeles Declaration, a new innovative and integrated approach to managing migration and share responsibility throughout the hemisphere,” Biden declared, according to La opinión.
What’s the plan?
In addition to «cracking down» on human trafficking by those who «prey on desperate people,» the plan seeks to invest in possible solutions to the region’s problems, which would offer stability and better options for a “safe and orderly migration”.
During his presidential campaign, Biden promised immigrants a path that would allow them to remain in the United States legally but, more than a year after taking office in the White House, he has not achieved significant results. Instead, he has been met with fierce resistance from Republicans, who openly criticize the Democratic president’s policies.
