Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray stated that Mexico rejects unilateral steps announced by the Trump administration. “I want to make clear in the most emphatic way that the government of Mexico and the Mexican people do not have to accept measures that one government wants to unilaterally impose on another,” Videgaray said. “We are not going to accept it because we don’t have to accept it, since it is not in the interest of Mexico.” Videgaray noted that this will be the first issue to be addressed at the meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, who will arrive this afternoon to Mexico City. Videgaray also remarked that “Mexico and the Mexican government will not hesitate to work with multilateral organizations, beginning with the United Nations, to defend international law human rights, liberties and due process in favor of Mexicans abroad.” Human rights Interior Undersecretary, Roberto Campa, said it is unacceptable that Mexico receives migrants deported from other nationalities as proposed by the United States. On Tuesday, a migrant deported from the United States committed suicide in Tijuana, Mexico. For Campa, United States has created a psychosis among the migrant community in that country.
