Biden has attempted to soften many of his immediate predecessor tough immigration rules, but he used his first months in office to present a broad migration package that would have provided a law allowing for millions of people living in the United States illegally. However, it has stuck in Congress, and the administration’s focus has shifted to other matters such as higher inflation and Russia’s conflict with Ukraine.

Biden and the foreign secretary exchanged handshakes. He then met El Salvador’s director of government affairs, Honduras’ diplomat, and Mexico’s director of international policy.

The administration has contributed over 65 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the region, as well as $94 million in aid to help get those vaccinations into the hands of people who need them. However, the administration’s proposal for $5 billion in global pandemic funding has been blocked in Congress for months, owing to Congressional republicans’ refusal to support it until the government reinstates Title 42.
