MEXICO CITY, Mexico, March 26, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The president of Mexico has blamed the migrant crisis currently affecting the southern border of the United States on President Joe Biden and his administration.

“Expectations were created that with the Government of President Biden there would be better treatment of migrants,” said Mexican President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador during a press conference Tuesday. “And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so.”

Obrador cautioned that while “Biden’s immigration policy is very good,” it will take some “time” to implement.

“Well, it is a process, because there are also many human traffickers, ‘coyotes,’ who encourage people to say: ‘Now it is easier to get to the United States, let’s go,’ and it is not like that; above all, there are risks unfortunately from violence. So, we have to protect and that is what we are carrying out,” said Obrador.

The explosion of people flooding the border between Mexico and the U.S. began shortly after Biden took office, notably after he stopped former former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which makes migrants return to Mexico while their refugee/asylum claims are administered.

Biden also stopped the construction of the border wall, which was one of Trump’s main projects, and put a 100-day moratorium on deportations.

Recently, the crisis has exploded with reports of thousands of migrants, most from Central America, going hungry and cold while being detained in “camps” set up by U.S. border officials.

The Biden administration has blamed Trump for the current crisis, and recently tasked Vice President Kamala Harris to tackle the migrant crisis facing the southern border.

“We are rebuilding the orderly systems that the Trump administration tore down to avoid the need for these children to actually take the perilous journey,” said Alejandro Mayorkas with the Department of Homeland Security.

Obrador stressed the severity of the border crisis, which he noted has been an issue for decades for both Mexico and the U.S. He also pointed out that Trump “respected” Mexico’s sovereignty and that he worked well with his administration. The Mexican president said bluntly that migrants “don’t go to the United States for fun, they go out of necessity.”

Obrador also said he is not in favor of any U.S. meddling in Mexico’s affairs, after a recent visit from a Biden envoy to the crisis area along the border.

“We do not accept supervision visits. We are not a colony, we are not a protectorate, Mexico is an independent, sovereign, free country,” said Obrador regarding the “envoy visits.”

Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.

Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]

This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.

People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.

Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.

So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.

Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.

Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.

We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

In November of 2020, Obrador said Mexico “cannot act recklessly” in congratulating Joe Biden as the “potential” winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential elections until official results were posted.

He was one of the last world leaders to congratulate Biden, doing so only in late December with a letter to congratulate him on his “triumph. Obrador did not attend Biden’s inauguration.

On January 7, Obrador made headlines the world over when he said that he does not like anybody “being censored” on social media in light of Trump’s ban from Twitter and Facebook. 

He then pledged to push forward with an international endeavor to fight censorship at the hands of social media giants, who banned Trump from their platforms, along with many other conservative voices.
