The people of Mexico do not deserve a deal like the one they want to apply: AMLO

In addition, he noted that the problem of migration does not fall entirely in Mexico because it originates from other countries, «we do not want to blame them are situations that arise.»
In countries where people do not have options, have no alternatives and are human beings, I want to say that we have accompanied them to return to their countries, to manyLópez Obrador affirmed that the responsibility in migratory politics is being fulfilled, according to human rights they have protected and helped to return migrants to their lands of origin.
All this will be reported in Washington, we also want to understand that it is a social economic issue. There are many who desperately are abandoned their villages, for lack of work and violence
The Mexican president reiterated that Mexico will help migrants do not enter the United States illegally, but «we also have to do it respecting human rights, not authoritarianism.» He reiterated that the situation of many migrants is worrisome due to the poverty and violence caused by migration. «Thousands come, thousands of children and children alone.»
I think President Trump is going to understand that it is not that way that things can be resolved
Said the president referring to the 5% tariffs he plans to impose on Mexican products. I think there will be a reification , because these measures do not suit Mexicans, but neither do Americans. «
I believe that the people of Mexico and the United States will be in favor of free trade

Given the threat of Trump, will Mexico reinforce measures?

We are going to show you data so that you can see that the migratory flow has grown due to the crisis in Central America, half of them are from Honduras. With this growth we have acted; has been accompanied back to their villages to migrants as had not been done in other times, respecting human rights
Will not any extraordinary action be taken? A journalist asked. «It’s already a plan,» said AMLO, and said he could not anticipate much of what Ebrard will present in Washington.
Once the evidence is handed out, let us know our actions and what has been done to accompany the migrants back, give them work options and protect them; everything we have done
«What I can say is that we have not stayed with our arms crossed, we have not neglected this painful issue,» he said, and it was here that the Mexican president reiterated that the true way to stop migration would be thanks to development.
This should not happen; if there were not so much poverty, so much inequality. And we keep insisting on addressing the underlying problem
