Mexico City, Feb 28 (AP) Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Saturday he will propose a Bracero” style immigrant labor programme to US President Joe Biden during a video call between the two leaders planned for Monday.
The Bracero programme allowed Mexicans to temporarily work in the United States to fill labour shortages during World War II and afterward. López Obrador said the US economy needs Mexican workers because of “their strength, their youth.”
He suggested he wants permission for 600,000 to 800,000 Mexican and Central American immigrants to work legally in the United States every year.
“You (Americans) are going to need Mexican and Central American workers to produce, to grow,” López Obrador said of what he plans to tell Biden. “It is better that we start putting order on migratory flows.”
Biden has proposed legislation to give legal status and a path to citizenship to all of the estimated 11 million people in the country who don”t have it. (AP)
