Mexico’s president is calling for a “soft, compassionate” immigration policy and has said that the country should welcome all migrants.
In a speech Friday, President Enrique Peña Nieto said Mexico is a country of “open borders” and “open hearts.”
“We are a country with the potential to become a global power, the source of innovation, the creator of the new era of globalisation,” Peña told a gathering of the nation’s governors.
“The new world order will be a place where we are not strangers, but together, with the world.” “
I want to tell you that this will happen,” he added.

Peña has been an outspoken critic of the US, which he says has pushed the world’s migration problem and encouraged illegal immigration.
He also has called for an end to the use of illegal immigrants in US immigration proceedings.
US President Donald Trump says he has been “working very hard” to crack down on illegal immigration and has called Mexicans rapists.
Peña’s comments come after US Senator John McCain said he hoped Mexico would “make a decision” on whether to accept refugees.
McCain said the Mexican president’s call for open borders is “the kind of thing that should make people pause and think.”
“It’s a very difficult decision, but I hope we can make a decision soon that will help Mexico’s people,” McCain told CNN.
Peres presidency has also been plagued by controversy. “
But I think it’s a difficult and difficult time.”

The US ambassador to Mexico, Michael McFaul, said the country was in “an extraordinary situation” and that Peña had “finally admitted that he had not really understood what he had been saying.”
“The question is, what’s next?”
McFaul told CNN in an interview aired on Thursday.
“So what’s he doing in terms of the immigration issue? “
I don’t think he’s understanding the consequences of his policies.” “

In the past few days, Trump has called Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto a “son of a whore” for supporting mass deportations of undocumented migrants and other measures he said were designed to prevent drug cartels from controlling the US border with Mexico.
