Mexico calls for ‘shared vision’ with the US on immigration
The Mexican government welcomed on Friday the passing of the immigration reform bill in the US Senate last Thursday as a breakthrough and reiterated its call for the continued need of a ‘shared vision’ on the topic.
The Mexican Foreign Secretary Jose Antonio Meade hailed the bill as containing a comprehensive vision for modifying the normative framework on immigration and a potential for improving the lives of millions of Mexicans living in the US. He added that Mexico has in the past expressed concerns over US measures that move away from the principles of shared responsibility and good neighborly relations. The immigration reform bill opens the door for the legalization and eventual granting of citizenship to undocumented immigrants in the US while also significantly strengthening border security.
