Mexico’s New Foreign Minister: “Migrants to U.S. Not Criminals”


The new foreign minister to Mexico has stated that “Mexican migrants to the United States are not criminals.”

On Monday, Luis Videgaray, Mexico’s new foreign minister appointed last week, said “the country would face the ‘dynamic’ U.S. political situation with negotiation, not conflict or insults.”

Videgaray was once Mexico’s finance minister and one of Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto’s top ministers.

Videgaray had to resign in September of 2016, in essence taking the hit for brokering a meeting between the Mexican president and then U.S. presidential candidate, Donald Trump, last year.

The meeting became a very unpopular move by the Mexican president and caused him major public grief.
