A new agreement that provides Mexico even more control over the influx of wage-cutting economic migrants into workplaces and communities across the United States has been unveiled by the White House.
The White House’s top security official, Jake Sullivan, made the announcement. “Today we are announcing that we are fully backing an international multipurpose location which the Government of Mexico plans to set up in southern Mexico to provide new refugee as well as labor choices for the most vulnerable individuals who are currently living in Mexico,” he said.
Jessica Vaughan, the policy director for the Center for Immigration Studies, replied that the agreement solidifies Mexico’s pro-migration government’s position as the border’s gatekeeper. “Because President Joe Biden had to spend political capital to convince the Mexicans to do this and has grown dependent on them to reduce disorder at the border,” she said to Breitbart News, “it provides Mexico leverage against the United States.”
According to Vaughan, the gatekeeper agreement “improves the look of things at the border, but it is not going to decrease the flow” of immigrants into American industries and neighborhoods.
Additionally, the agreement “suggests that the Biden administration actually was prepared to give up a deal regarding the cartel drug smuggling problems in order to obtain the migration deal it really wants,” she added. Lower-level Biden officials declared a meaningless agreement about drug smuggling.
Because many individuals will pay the cartels to assist them in avoiding both Mexican gatekeepers and U.S. border authorities, she continued, the agreement will also not stop the gangs from smuggling workers. However, it will also provide American elites the chance to damage the middle class by lowering wages for Americans, driving up housing costs, and inflating prices.
According to the release, the gatekeeper deal:
“Builds on a number of effective legal pathway measures that Presidents Biden and Lopez Obrador committed to start over the past year. Strong and enduring ties of friendship as well as a partnership between our two nations are demonstrated by the increased cooperation between the United States and Mexico to handle our shared border in a compassionate and orderly manner.”
