‘Work visas for C. Amer­i­cans’:




Mex­i­can Pres­i­dent An­dres Manuel Lopez Obrador pro­posed on Wed­nes­day of­fer­ing more work visas for Cen­tral Amer­i­cans and said the United States should do the same, part of a ne­go­ti­a­tion aimed at stem­ming the north­ward flow of mi­grants.

Lopez Obrador, who took of­fice on Satur­day, said he would dis­cuss im­mi­gra­tion with US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump in com­ing days, in­clud­ing in­creas­ing in­vest­ment in south­ern Mex­ico and Cen­tral Amer­ica.

“We are propos­ing in­vest­ment in pro­duc­tive projects and in job cre­ation, and not only that, also work visas for Mex­ico and for the United States,” he told a news con­fer­ence, say­ing he would give more de­tails “soon.”

Mex­ico and the United States have been in talks about how to man­age the large groups mov­ing through Mex­ico in car­a­vans, with Lopez Obrador push­ing for in­vest­ment to ad­dress the poverty and crime that drive thou­sands of peo­ple every year from Hon­duras, El Sal­vador and Gu­atemala.
