How to adjust metal door latch hole?

(Video in comments) My front door doesn’t close properly because the door latch is a millimeter away from the door latch hole, so if I don’t use the deadbolt you can just push the door open. Normally I would just cut a bigger hole but it’s a metal door frame so the screw holes for the latch hole frame are predetermined. Is there a tool I can use to make the door latch frame hole bigger by bending or cutting metal? Is there a simpler solution I’m just not seeing?
