Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said his government will reinforce measures to contain migration as he seeks to help the United States cope with record numbers of people trying to reach the U.S. border, APA reports citing Reuters.

Lopez Obrador's comments come a day after he spoke with U.S. President Joe Biden, during which both agreed that more enforcement was needed at their shared frontier, as record numbers of migrants disrupt border trade.

"What was agreed is that we keep working together," Lopez Obrador told a regular press conference. "We have a proposal to strengthen our plans, what we've been doing," he added, without going into details.

Migrants are heading through Mexico to the U.S. to escape violence, economic distress and negative impacts of climate change, according the U.N. The number crossing the perilous Darien Gap straddling Colombia and Central America has topped half a million this year, double last year's record.
