Biden praises “genuine friendship” between Mexico and the US before Beatriz Gutiérrez Müller in celebration of May 5
President Joe Biden praised this Thursday the relationship that unites his country with Mexicoand assured that it is from “genuine friends”, during the celebration for May 5, which Beatriz Gutiérrez Müller attended as the guest of honor.
Mexico, Biden assured at the event held in the Jardín de las Rosas, “is not our backyard. It’s our front yard.”
He recalled that when Obrador “had the courtesy” to visit the White House last November, he saw a portrait of the late former President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Oval Office, and that he told him that “he liked Roosevelt because he was the president who started the good neighbor policy between our countries”.
The US president insisted that today the relationship that unites Mexico with the United States is much more than one of neighbors: “We are genuine friends, partners, united by an indestructible bond, strengthened by mutual respect, by the commitment to the prosperity and security of our two nations.”
He said that the links between the two countries are also strengthened by shared history, culture. And he recalled the contribution of Mexican culture to the United States.
He assured that his government is working to “fix the immigration system. We can secure our borders and keep the torch of freedom high.” He insisted that from his first day in office he sent an immigration reform bill that includes a path to citizenship for migrants “who contribute to our economy. We are a nation of immigrants. That is our strength.”
