The U.S. delegation will include Roberta Jacobson, a former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico and current Special Assistant to the President and Coordinator for the Southern Border. According to a prepared statement, Jacobson and the delegation will meet with their Mexican counterparts to “develop an effective and humane plan of action to manage migration.”
The sudden visit comes at a time when the U.S. southern border continues to see a rising number of migrant apprehensions–which overwhelm detention facilities. The situation led to Border Patrol agents being forced to release migrants without a court date due to overcrowding at the detention facilities.
