President Enrique Peña Nieto said that Texas’ decision to deploy National Guard troops along its border with Mexico is “unpleasant” and “reprehensible.” 

 

During an interview with Mexican journalist Jacobo Zabludovsky at the National Palace, President Enrique Peña Nieto said that Texas’ decision to deploy National Guard troops along its border with Mexico is “unpleasant” and “reprehensible.”

“I think this attitude is completely reprehensible and does not solve a problem that we have to face jointly.” the president said.

“This policy does not embody the spirit of cordiality and friendship between two nations,” he said.

“Here in Mexico we are trying to assist the unaccompanied children and bring them back to their places of origin. But those who arrive at the border, should be treated with dignity and according to the immigration policies of the United States.” he added.

Gov. Perry’s spokeswoman, Lucy Nashed, said the guard had been sent to the border “to disrupt criminal activity that threatens all American citizens.”
