Mexico Opens Aid Centers in US to Protect Citizens from Immigration Enforcement

Washington, Mexico has opened legal aid centers at consulates in 50 US cities, in a move designed to protect its citizens from immigration enforcement.

Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray reaffirmed concerns about the human rights of Mexicans in the US, according to the (BBC).

But migrant defense centers would not “promote illegality,” he said.

Mexico is worried about the impact of the guidelines issued last month by US President Donald Trump on its citizens.

A week after being sworn in January, Trump reaffirmed his intention to build a wall along his country’s southern border, which extends for 3,200km (2,000 miles).

He insisted that Mexico would have to bear the cost of the proposed wall.
