Biden to meet with Mexican president amid migration issues

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — President Joe Biden plans a virtual meeting with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Monday’s meeting is a chance for them to discuss migration, the coronavirus and economic and national security issues. Mexico’s president says he intends to propose to Biden a new Bracero-style immigrant labor program that could bring 600,000 to 800,000 Mexican and Central American immigrants a year to work legally in the U.S. He says it’d be not only for agriculture workers but for other sectors and professionals. A senior Biden administration official won’t say whether Biden will back the proposal. The original Bracero program allowed Mexicans to work temporarily in the U.S. to fill labor shortages during and after World War II.
