Summit of the Americas: Leaders need to work together “securing the borders” Biden says

Global News published this video item, entitled “Summit of the Americas: Leaders need to work together “securing the borders” Biden says” – below is their description.

U.S. President Joe Biden and fellow leaders from the Western Hemisphere on Friday rolled out a new set of measures to confront the regional migration crisis, seeking to salvage an Americas summit roiled by division.

Twenty countries joined Biden for a ceremonial unveiling of the plan.

“This is just a start. Much more work remains, to state the obvious. Every country needs to work together to maintain a humane, orderly immigration process. To invest in securing the borders. Screening and registering migrants who enter their countries. And repatriating those who do not qualify to remain.”

The announcements are part of a U.S.-led pact dubbed the “Los Angeles Declaration” and aimed at creating incentives for countries taking in large numbers of migrants and spreading responsibility across the region.

The declaration encompasses commitments by an array of countries, including Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, Belize and Ecuador. There was no mention, however, of any pledges by Brazil, Latin America’s most populous nation.

Measures also include the United States and Canada taking in more guest labourers, providing pathways for people from poorer countries to work in richer ones, and offering greater protections for migrants.
