The left-wing Mexican government is warning that President Joe Biden’s border policy is “stoking illegal immigration” and “creating business for organized crime,” according to Mexican government.
Mexico is “worried the new US administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and building business for organized crime,” according to Reuters, which first published the comments from Mexican officials.

When asked about Biden, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said, “They see him as the migrant president, and so many feel they’re going to meet the United States.” “We need to work together to keep the flow in check, because this company can’t be handled one day at a time.”
The cartels are “diversifying methods of smuggling and winning clients as they eye U.S. policies that would ‘incentivize migration,’” according to the study.

Help for victims of gangs and crime, streamlining of the legalization process, and suspension of Trump-era accords that deported citizens to Central America are among the policies that Mexican officials say are driving the illegal activity.
Mexican cartels have transformed their business model “since the day Biden took office,” with “unprecedented” levels of complexity in their illegal activity, including “briefing clients on the new immigration laws, using technology to outfox officials, and disguising smuggling activities as travel agencies.” Smugglers use a variety of social media platforms to keep migrants informed about “impending checkpoints.”
To escape detection, those attempting to reach the United States are now traveling in smaller groups and using less traveled paths, which the study claims are much riskier than the already dangerous journey through Mexico.
Smugglers advise migrants to go to their local authorities and file lawsuits alleging that they have become victims of crime so that they can apply for asylum in the United States. Migrants are also advised to bring children to make the asylum process simpler.
According to the Washington Post, the administration is “holding record numbers of unaccompanied migrant teenagers and children in detention cells for much longer than legally allowed,” and federal health officials are “falling farther behind in their race to find accommodation for them in shelters.”
