By the end of April, President Joe Biden could announce an immigration plan that would grant him the ability to unilaterally close the border with Mexico in an attempt to control the flow of immigrants.

The Biden administration has maintained a cooperative relationship with López Obrador, despite the Mexican president’s criticism of some U.S. policies on immigration and security.

Biden has also addressed López Obrador’s proposal to contain irregular immigration at the southern border of the United States.

AMLO had requested a $20 billion investment and the lifting of sanctions against Venezuela and Cuba.

Will Biden close the border?

Biden has stated that he is still evaluating the possibility of taking unilateral action to close the country’s southern border and is examining whether he has the legal authority to do so without Congress’s approval.

«We’re examining whether or not I have that power. I would have that power under the legislation,» said the president.

«And some have suggested I should just go ahead and try it. And if I get shut down by the court, I get shut down by the court. But we’re trying to work that, work through that right now,» the president added.

«Before Obrador even came up with that plan I initiated that plan years ago,» he continued.

‘People don’t want to leave where they’re from’

According to Biden, irregular immigrants head to the United States because, in his opinion, «They have no alternative.»

«And so what we’re doing is… we did and it was working for a while until they cut it off, is provide for the ability to have jobs created in the countries where people are leaving,» he said.

«People don’t want to leave where they’re from. People want to be able to make sure that they have an opportunity to just make a living, and they’d rather make a living where they are.»

This statement underscores the complexity and urgency of the migration problem facing the U.S, as well as the need to find comprehensive and humanitarian solutions.

Biden’s immigration plan and its consequences

Given this, the potential unilateral closure of the border raises a series of legal and ethical questions. While the measure might aim to control the migration flow, it could also have significant humanitarian consequences.

Closing the border could hinder the access of asylum seekers to a safe place and increase the risk of exploitation and violence for those trying to cross irregularly.

The president’s consideration of the legal authority to close the border without Congress’s approval reflects the complex relationship between the executive and legislative powers in the United States.

The urgency to address the migration situation effectively and with legal solidity is clear.
