Mexico’s top diplomat says his country expects “constant and growing” flows of migrants in coming years, and he estimates the United States must spend $2 billion per year in development aid to stem the tide

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s top diplomat said Thursday his country expects to see “constant and growing” flows of migrants in coming years and estimated the United States must spend $2 billion per year in development aid to stem the tide.

“If you look at the region from different points of view, but especially demographics and economics, it is clear the flows are going to be constant and growing in coming years,” Ebrard said.

“The United States will have to allocate $2 billion per year for development in these countries, in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador,” he added.

The U.S. Border Patrol had 168,195 encounters with migrants last month, the highest since March 2001.
