Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Thursday, Sept. 2, that he would write to US President Joe Biden to insist on the need to tackle the causes of migration from Central America.

“I will send him a letter because we cannot just be detaining” migrants, Lopez Obrador said at his daily news conference.

“We must address the causes. People do not leave their towns for the pleasure,” he said.

Lopez Obrador has repeatedly proposed expanding one of his domestic welfare programs into Central America with the aim of generating 1.2 million jobs in the region.

The scheme, named Sembrando Vida, provides economic grants to agricultural producers.
