Kamala Harris to test 'long-standing partnership' in meeting on migration with Mexico's AMLO

MEXICO CITY – Vice President Kamala Harris caps her first foreign trip Tuesday in a high stakes visit to the United States' crucial partner in stemming the flow of migrants at the U.S. southern border: Mexico and its populist president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, an important ally who's also been a critical voice of the Biden administration's immigration policies.

Harris will meet with López Obrador — known by his initials as AMLO — and later with local female entrepreneurs and labor leaders as she looks to deepen diplomatic ties with Mexico as part of the administration's broader strategy to address underlying causes of migration from the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

On her discussions with López Obrador, Harris told reporters Monday night the U.S. had "a longstanding partnership" with the neighboring country, a dynamic she would emphasize in addressing "Mexico's role as it relates to the region."

In recent weeks, Harris has spoken with López Obrador several times and held a virtual meeting with him in early May as she sought early commitments on stemming the flow of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Symone Sanders, Harris' chief spokesperson, said the vice president would use the bilateral meeting to "build on that progress" from the first meeting and discuss the shared priorities of economic development, security cooperation and curbing irregular migration from Central America.
