Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador warned on Sunday during an interview with “60 Minutes” that unless the United States complies with Latin America’s requests for aid, the tide of migrants will continue.

In January, Obrador issued a series of demands for what the U.S. must do to stop the flow of migrants to the border, ranging from sending Latin American countries $20 billion in aid a year to granting some level of amnesty to illegal immigrant workers in the U.S.

Mexico has reportedly taken some state-level action to curb mass migration at President Biden’s request, making crossings drop, however, the number of migrants began to rise again in February, with Border Patrol expecting another surge in thespring.

“Everybody thinks you have the power in this moment to slow down migration. Do you plan to?” “60 Minutes” corrrespondent Sharyn Alfonsisaid asked Obrador.

“We do, and want to continue doing it. But we do want for the root causes to be attended to, for them to be seriously looked at,” a translator interpreted Obrador’s response from Spanish.

Alfonsi noted Obrador’s demands for the U.S. to send $20 billion a year to Latin America countries, lift sanctions on Venezuela, end the Cuban embargo and legalize millions of Mexicans that are living in the U.S.

“If they don’t do the things that you’ve said need to be done, then what?,” she asked.

“The flow of migrants will continue,” Obrador responded.
