Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will use his White House visit this week to urge US President Joe Biden to allow more legal immigration, which he says would help curb inflation.

Lopez Obrador, who traveled to Washington Monday, has long been calling for more Mexicans and other regional migrants to be allowed to enter the US for work. Before heading to the plane for a rare trip abroad, he argued that, with US companies struggling to find workers, immigrants can boost production and therefore supply of key goods.
