By BBN Staff:The Mexican government today issued a statement informing that through its Foreign Ministry, it is issuing a Diplomatic note of Protest to the United States’ Department of State regarding statements made by US President Donald Trump.
Last Wednesday, during a White House meeting, Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants saying that dangerous people were looking to breach America’s borders and branding those people as ‘animals’.
Quoted in The New York Times, Trump stated: “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”
The diplomatic protest note sent by Mexico states that Trump’s assertions are absolutely unacceptable, since they generate an adverse climate for Mexicans who are in the American Union, regardless of their immigration status.
The document emphasizes that these assertions by President Trump are contrary to respect for human rights and violate the principle of shared responsibility that should govern the bilateral relationship.
The Mexican government confirms its firm commitment to ensure the dignified treatment and respect for the human rights of their compatriots in the United States, without distinction of their immigration status.
