El presidente Joe Biden ha suspendido por segunda vez el polémico programa migratorio bautizado como Quédate en México, que obligaba a miles de migrantes a esperar sus audiencias judiciales para obtener asilo en Estados Unidos del lado mexicano de la frontera. El fin de la medida, creada en 2019 por la Administración de Donald Trump, fue informado este martes por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional. El anuncio llega después de un fallo judicial que puso fin al debate de una propuesta que fue una de las banderas de campaña de Biden.

La decisión ha despertado el debate de cómo puede afectar al ya asediado sistema migratorio mexicano, que enfrenta una época con las cifras más altas que ha visto en su historia. A quién afecta, cómo y cuáles pueden ser las consecuencias son algunas de las dudas que se abren en el nuevo escenario.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador needled President Biden over high gas prices in the United States during a White House visit Tuesday intended to serve as a make-up meeting between the two leaders.

“While you wait for the price of gas in the United States to go down, we have allowed Americans who live near our border to fill their cars on the Mexican side, at a lower price. Drivers in the U.S. are currently filling their autos at gas stations in Mexico’s border cities, but we could increase our inventory immediately,” López Obrador said.

President Joe Biden is meeting with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Tuesday for discussions the White House says will showcase the underlying strength of a relationship that of late has been more notable for the leaders’ disagreements on issues including energy and Ukraine policy.

López Obrador declined Biden’s invitation to the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles last month after unsuccessfully urging the U.S. to include the leaders of Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela — all countries with anti-democratic regimes. The Mexican leader also has called U.S. support for Ukraine in its war with Russia “a crass error” and criticized the U.S. for moving more swiftly to provide military funding to Ukraine than financial aid to Central America.

Several thousand migrants who set off in southern Mexico with the goal of reaching the United States dissolved their march Sunday after Mexican officials handed out about 3,000 temporary residence permits.

The permits will allow the migrants, mostly Venezuelans and Central Americans, to stay on Mexican territory for up 30 days while they pursue immigration procedures, officials from Mexico’s National Institute of Migration said.

Massive migrant caravan disbands as Mexico hands out travel permits; migrants expected to head to US

The massive migrant caravan, which at one point swelled up to well over 10,000 migrants as it set off toward the U.S. border from southern Mexico, has now broken up as Mexican officials have offered temporary visas to migrants – although organizers say they will still travel to the U.S.

Organizer Luis Villagran told Fox News that about 80% of migrants in the caravan, approximately 9,000, have received a migratory multiple form (FMM). That travel visa allows them to travel freely in Mexico temporarily.

The Biden administration has faced heavily criticism for its handling of the crisis, with Republicans tying the surge to the administration’s rollback of Trump-era policy and a lax interior enforcement – combined with calls for mass amnesty in Washington D.C.

Mexico’s migration agency has issued nearly 7,000 temporary documents and transit visas over the last few days to members of a migrant caravan which by Saturday had broken up in southern Mexico.

Hundreds of people were heading north in buses while others were spread out over various towns north of Tapachula, near the Guatemalan border, resting or waiting to receive money from relatives to continue their trip to the United States.

In its statement, the Mexican migration agency did not specify what kind of documents were issued but most of the migrants showed papers that gave them a period of one month or more to leave the country or begin regularization procedures in Mexico. Most want to use the documents to reach the U.S. border.

TAPACHULA, Mexico — Several thousand migrants set out walking in the rain early Monday in southern Mexico, tired of waiting to normalize their status in a region with little work and still far from their ultimate goal of reaching the United States.


Their advocates said they wanted to call attention to their plight, timing it with this week’s Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles. It was estimated to include 4,000 to 5,000 migrants, mostly from Central America, Venezuela and Haiti.

Ever since he was a boy in the border city of Nogales, Ariz., Santa Cruz County Sheriff David Hathaway says people have been crossing over into America looking for a better life. Only recently, he says, has this become red meat for national politicians.

“Caravans staging in Mexico, they’re heading this way and it’s gonna be a mass invasion,” he says, chuckling. “It’s never materialized the way they describe it.”
