WASHINGTON – With a court order lifting Title 42 scheduled to take effect this week, President Joe Biden plans to discuss flows of migrants to the southern border with Ecuador President Guillermo Lasso when they meet on Monday.

Lasso’s visit comes after Chris Dodd, the former Connecticut senator and Biden’s special adviser for the Americas, extended an invitation on Biden’s behalf during a recent visit.

During the summer, Lasso attended the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles after a number of key presidents opted to skip out on the summit and send delegations instead.

“We are obviously invested in Ecuador’s success and the president of Ecuador, democratically elected as he is, is working hard to deliver prosperity and security for his people,” White House spokesman John Kirby said in a call with reporters Friday.
