Trump to visit US-Mexico border with Texas governor Biden has faced growing pressure from migrant advocates and health experts to end the policy.

The Homeland Security secretary’s remarks during a visit to Mexico City come amid months of high migration that has become an early policy challenge for U.S. President Joe Biden, as hundreds of thousands of people flee violence and poverty in Central America and parts of Mexico.

Mayorkas said both Mexico and the United States were working to curtail irregular migration.

“We have challenged one another,” he told a news conference. “It’s not just a question of the U.S. asking of Mexico, it’s a matter of what we both can do.”
Mayorkas noted that Title 42, a COVID-19 health order implemented under former U.S. President Donald Trump to slow migration during the pandemic, would remain in place as long as needed for public health reasons.

Biden has faced growing pressure from migrant advocates and health experts to end the policy as more evidence emerges that migrants are being expelled into danger in Mexico.

Mayorkas added that his department would be prepared to address border issues once the order is lifted.

“It’s not a tool of immigration policy,” he said.

In meetings with Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard and other top Mexican officials, Mayorkas also discussed speeding up vaccinations at the border amid efforts to phase out pandemic-related travel restrictions.

The United States is not considering requiring a so-called vaccine passport for crossings, he said.

Biden on Tuesday picked Latino lawyer and former U.S. senator Ken Salazar as ambassador for Mexico, whose role includes working to limit migration from Central America.

Echoing Vice President Kamala Harris’s comments to migrants during a visit to Guatemala last week, he said the government has sent a clear message to migrants: “Do not come.”
