Mexico rejects anti-immigration measures approved by Texas, US

Mexico City,Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) Mexico today rejected anti-immigration measures in Texas, whose Congress gave the green light to laws that allocate 1.5 billion dollars for a border wall and make it a crime to enter the state illegally.

A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned these rules are intended to stop the flow of people by criminalizing them, which will result in the separation of families, discrimination and racial profiling.

It added that Mexico is in its legitimate duty to protect the guarantees of its nationals in the United States and, in that sense, categorically rejects any measure that allows state or local authorities to detain and return nationals or foreigners to the country.

It also stressed its concern regarding the package of legislative measures that will affect the human rights of the more than 10 million Mexicans residing in the state of Texas, by fostering hostile environments that may lead to acts or hate crimes against migrants.

It emphasized its repudiation of any measure that contemplates the involuntary return of foreigners without respect for due process.

The text added that upon learning of the presentation of legislations that threaten the rights of the Mexican population, the Foreign Ministry instructed the 11 consular representations in Texas to take measures to reinforce the actions of consular assistance and protection of the population.
