Mexico has refused to accept migrants deported from Texas.

Mexico has refused to accept migrants deported from Texas.

The Mexican government under no circumstances intends to accept its migrants, who are planned to be deported to its territory after the entry into force of the SB4 law in Texas, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Latin American country said.

“Mexico reaffirms its legal right to protect the rights of its citizens in the United States and to establish its own immigration policies on its territory. Mexico recognizes the importance of a unified immigration policy and bilateral efforts with this country to ensure that the migration of people is safe, orderly and respectful of their human rights and was not dependent on state or local legislative decisions. In this sense, Mexico will under no circumstances accept repatriation from the State of Texas,”  a communique on the website of the Mexican Foreign Ministry says.

Mexico City condemned the entry into force of the Texas law SB4, which expands the powers of local security forces and, among other things, allows them to deport to Mexico citizens of this country who do not have a residence permit.

“Mexico categorically rejects any measure that allows state or local authorities to carry out immigration control tasks, detain and return citizens or foreigners to Mexican territory. Mexico also questions legal provisions that affect the rights of more than 10 million people of Mexican origin living in Texas, creating a hostile environment in which the migrant community is subjected to acts of hatred, discrimination and racial division,” the document says.
