Asked about the increased flow of migrants through Mexico and the latest incidents of boarding cargo trains, the Mexican leader reiterated that an intentionally wrong approach is being given to a worldwide structural issue as a result of negative conditions of a socioeconomic system that everyone knows about and nothing is being done, not even the United Nations.
The basic issue is that the underlying problems affecting the entire world must be tackled down, and he repeated that the UN has become a decorated flower vase while recalling that he proposed in the 2022 UNGA to address structural problems, to crack down on corruption, inequality, the poor distribution of wealth.
Why is the migrant crisis surging?, he asked. There is not a single plan of international financial organizations, of the World Bank, of the main powers, to help the poorest countries.
However, how much is spent on armaments to wage wars and kill people? They think only of sending armaments to Ukraine. If all that money that is used for armaments, which only favors the war industry and causes deaths, were used to fight poverty, health, education and create jobs, we would not have to face up with these migration problems, he stated.
What is being done instead is to militarize the borders, and what Joe Biden is doing to increase visas to some countries is good but insufficient, these programs must be expanded, but even so we will continue to insist that the causes be addressed.
