Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The US and Mexico have vowed to crack down on migrant smugglers as a growing migration crisis causes chaos on their shared border.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador discussed how to stop the flow of people in talks held in Mexico City.

The high-level meeting came as pressure grows on the White House to stem the influx of migrants to the US.

US officials said last week that up to 10,000 people were crossing every day.

On X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, Mr Blinken said the US is committed to resolving “shared challenges” with Mexico including “unprecedented irregular migration flows”, drug trafficking and re-opening ports of entry.

Speaking to journalists on Mr Blinken’s flight back to Washington, a senior Biden administration official said that Mexico’s delegation shared plans to crack down on migrant smugglers, whom officials say have been moving migrants en masse to the border on trucks and trains.
