President Biden met virtually with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Monday. The two leaders discussed immigration, the coronavirus pandemic, and collaborating on economic issues. "Mexico's president has said he intends during the meeting to propose to Biden a new Bracero-style immigrant labor program that could bring 600,000 to 800,000 Mexican and Central American immigrants a year to work legally in the United States," writes The Associated Press. The presidents also discussed whether the U.S. is willing to share COVID-19 vaccine doses with Mexico, something White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said was not under consideration.
