Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
New information has appeared about Trump’s immigration law, in which he claimed to deport all illegal immigrants.
The government declared a new law – all undocumented people even if they are not mexicans, will be transferred to Mexico.
Naturally Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray rejected the rule created by the US.
However is unclear if the US has the authority to use force on Mexico to take the illegal immigrants, regardless of their nationality.
The previous president Barack Obama, indeed deported the highest amount of illegal immigrants of all the US presidents, however he was focused on expelling those mostly convicted of serious crimes.
The new law gives the right to Border Patrol to deport people immediately. Additionally anyone can be deported if they are unable to prove they have been living in the country for more than two years. The change is huge, the previous rule said that a person who had been in the US less than two weeks and was within 100 miles of the border could be deported.
Yesterday Luis Videgaray made a statement, in which he says “We are not going to accept that because we don’t have to and it is not in the interest of Mexico. We also have control of our borders and we will exercise it fully”.
Even the head of human rights in Mexico spoke out on this issue. He claimed that the new law is “hostile and unacceptable”.
Since Donald Trump set up his campaign, the relationship with Mexico has been very tense. He made border control a key role in his presidency campaign.
In spite of the tension between those two countries, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “the relationship with Mexico is phenomenal right now”.
