The Biden administration is sending Roberta Jacobson, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico and now Biden "border czar," to visit Mexico. I guess that the delegation will talk about the border “challenge.”
Jacobson: As you know, Señor Presidente, we need your help at the border.Lopez-Obrador: You opened the border, not us. We made a deal with President Trump and it was working well for the U.S. and Mexico.Jacobson: I know, Señor Presidente. So we need to reestablish "The remain in Mexico" program but let's give it a different name so it does not sound like the Trump program.Lopez-Obrador: How can I help you? You opened the border and people accepted your invitation. And now you want me to bail out your president.Jacobson: You are right, Señor Presidente. But we really need your help so we can stop this “challenge” on the border. It’s going to kill us in 2022.Lopez-Obrador: What are you going to do for Mexico? My people are furious that you've turned Mexico into a highway to the north. I’ve got my own midterm elections in 2021.
