LIKOTLO TSA US: Sesosa se sa Bonoeng sa Phallo ea Bafalli moeling
- Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced on Monday that an estimated 10,000 migrants are making their way to the U.S. border daily. He points to U.S. economic sanctions on nations such as Cuba and Venezuela as the primary catalyst for this surge.
Echoing Colombian President Gustavo Petro’s stance, López Obrador attributes the migrant influx to U.S. sanctions, with Venezuelan and Cuban citizens forming a significant part of this movement. However, some experts counter this claim by citing economic mismanagement and political repression in these countries as the main drivers of emigration.
López Obrador argues that these sanctions are more rooted in ideological differences than genuine concerns about human rights, thereby advocating against their continuation. Both he and Petro have come under fire for their perceived lack of action in stopping large-scale migrant smuggling through their nations.
Additionally, López Obrador questioned U.S aid allocation towards Ukraine while proposing a redirection of some funds towards boosting economic development in Latin America instead. He stated last Friday: “The amount authorized for war efforts in Ukraine far exceeds what is given to combat poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean.”
