For this reason, we are already using all the resources of our consular network for the benefit of Mexicans abroad. On behalf of the Mexican Government, I again strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the United States Congress and Government, measures that are making the persecution and humiliating treatment of undocumented Mexican workers worse.
The insensitivity shown toward those who contribute a great deal to the economy and to society in the United States has been incentive to redouble our battle to gain recognition of their enormous contribution to the economies of both nations and to defend their rights.
Therefore, the Government of Mexico will continue to firmly insist to both countries societies and Governments on the necessity of comprehensive immigration reform and of categorically rejecting construction of a wall on our common border."
Message to the Nation from the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, on the occasion of his first State of the Union Address. - Sunday, September 2 | Special Events/Communications National Palace, Mexico City.
