Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken and other top American officials were meeting with Mexico’s president on Wednesday for talks on how to slow the surge in illegal migration at the southern U.S. border.

President Biden dispatched the officials to Mexico City in a time when border crossings have hit record numbers. There have been days this month when the U.S. Border Patrol encountered more than 10,000 people making crossings.

Immigration has been a consistent political vulnerability for President Biden, particularly as Republicans in Congress demand a new crackdown in exchange for wartime aid for Ukraine and Israel.

Mexico is a key player in the U.S. government’s efforts to limit the numbers of migrants, especially in recent years as people from across the globe have passed through the country in skyrocketing numbers.

Shortly before Wednesday’s meeting, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico said the U.S. Congress should offer more support to Latin America instead of putting up “barriers, barbed wire fences on the river or thinking about building walls.”

“It is more efficient and more humane to invest in the development of the people,” he said.

He also said next year’s presidential election in the United States would bring migration to the top of the agenda.
