    Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Saturday that in a virtual meeting Monday with President Joe Biden he will emphasize how important migrant labor is to the US economy.

    US President Joe Biden (left) and his Mexican counterpart Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador are due to hold a virtual meeting on March 1, 2021

    Speaking at a public event in the northern state of Zacatecas, Lopez Obrador said migration would be a central topic of the leaders' conversation.

    The United States "is going to need Mexican and Central American workers in order to grow, to produce," he said he would tell Biden.

    The Mexican president estimated that the US economy would need 600,000 to 800,000 migrant workers a year, underscoring the importance of "reaching a good agreement" on migration.

    He noted that during World War II, the US and Mexico reached their so-called Bracero agreement, under which Mexican farmworkers traveled legally to the US to fill jobs left vacant by Americans sent abroad to fight.

    Migration, always a thorny issue between the neighboring countries, rose to the forefront during the administration of Donald Trump, a fierce critic of illegal -- and often of legal -- migration.

    Faced with Trump's threats of tariffs, Lopez Obrador had agreed to keep migrants in Mexico while their US asylum requests are processed.

    US civil society groups estimate that some 70,000 undocumented migrants were deported to Mexico between January 2019 and December 2020. Roughly 6,000 remain in the country, according to the Mexican government.

    With Biden's arrival in the White House, the US canceled that controversial program and, since February 19, has allowed small groups into the country to pursue their asylum requests.

    Biden and Lopez Obrador last spoke by phone on January 23, primarily about migration and the Covid-19 pandemic.

    We do not need 50 MILLION overbreeding criminals picking lettuce.

    Put them to work on the Mexican side growing produce. Mexico has PLENTY of land, they can build green houses.

    He wants to dump his overbreeding poor on our soil to work so they send BILLIONS of dollars in remittances home and get on our FREE stuff while HE does nothing for his own people. He is on the payroll of the Cartel.

    Create jobs on your own damn soil.

    We need to automate and let farmers write off the equipment.

    We already pay the high cost of lettuce, just not at the "check out" stand.

    We pay over $150 billion a year in school, free breakfast/lunch, healthcare, welfare, food stamps, WIC, TANF, diapers, anchor babies, crime, courts, lawyers, jails, prison, theft, gangs, drugs, rape, and destruction of our neighborhoods that lower property values.

    Pull your big daddy pants up, roll up your sleeves, and start providing for your own country and stop dumping your problems over our border and begging for our money.
