The president of Mexico thanked President Joe Biden for failing to secure America's southern border and insisted that he grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who have stolen into the United States.

Biden met with the leftist Mexican leader Andres Manuel López Obrador and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Mexico City on Tuesday for the North American Leaders' Summit. The topic that dominated the summit was what Biden called "the greatest migration in human history."

Standing alongside Biden and Trudeau, Obrador remarked, "President Biden, you are the first president of the United States in a very long time that has not built not even one meter of wall and ... we thank you for that, sir."

The Mexican president noted that "some may not like" Biden's refusal to secure the border, particularly "the conservatives."

465,034 illegal aliens were encountered at the border in the first two months of this fiscal year; 2.37 million criminal noncitizens poured over the southern border last year, and millions more stole over in 2021.

During former President Donald Trump's last term in office, only 458,088 illegal aliens were encountered at the southern border, and his administration raised roughly 737,079 meters of wall.

Biden said, "There can no longer be any question, none, in today’s interconnected world. We cannot wall ourselves off from shared problems," adding, "We’re trying to make it easier for people to get here."

That wasn't enough for the Mexican president.

Obrador insisted "in a very respectful manner" that Biden pressure the "U.S. Congress to regularize the migration situations of millions of Mexicans who have been in the States working, living in the United States, and contributing to the development of that great nation."

On his way to the summit, Biden met with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in the beleaguered border city of El Paso. Abbott communicated to Biden: "Under your watch ... America is suffering the worst illegal immigration in the history of our country. Your open-border policies have emboldened the cartels, who grow wealthy by trafficking deadly fentanyl and even human beings."

Abbott indicated that what Biden later characterized as making it "easier for people to get here" was tantamount to a failure to "defend the States against invasion."

The New York Times reported that during the summit, the Mexican president — whose crime-ridden country is presently a war zone — took a not-so-subtle jab at Abbott for ejecting criminal noncitizens from Texas and sending them to so-called sanctuary cities, calling the governor's efforts "completely inhuman."

According to the White House, the North American leaders ultimately "reaffirmed their commitment to work together to achieve safe, orderly, and humane migration in region."

These commitments apparently included giving "migrants streamlined access to legal pathways"; "countering xenophobia and discrimination against migrants and refugees by promoting balanced public narratives on migrants and refugees to support their meaningful inclusion in the region"; and, per Biden's announcement last week, allowing 30,000 migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, or Haiti to enter the U.S. every month.
