Mexico is urging Canadians not to travel to Canada following President Donald Trump’s decision to impose a travel ban on the U.S. and temporarily suspend the country’s refugee resettlement program.
The move comes after a judge in Texas temporarily blocked the travel ban from going into effect on Monday, which Trump said was necessary to protect the U,S., from terrorism threats.
Mexico says the ban is not compatible with international law and that its citizens, especially Mexican immigrants, face threats and discrimination at the border.
It also says it will continue to protest the U’s move.
The U.N. Security Council unanimously condemned the ban, saying it violates international human rights and undermines regional stability.
“We call on Canada and Mexico to reconsider their decision to suspend refugee resettlement in the United States,” U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in a statement.
“The Security Council remains open to the possibility of the return of refugees, and we are working closely with Canada and the United Kingdom to ensure that these issues are resolved before the ban goes into effect.”
has said Canada and other countries should respect the order, while Mexico said it is open to a full review of the U.’s actions.
Mexico’s foreign minister, Claudia Ruiz, said on Monday that Canada should stop its unilateral measures and consult with other countries before taking unilateral action.
Canada, which is home to more than two million immigrants from Mexico and other Central American countries, said it will work with the U.,U.N., U.C.P.L.O. and other regional and international agencies to continue to implement its immigration and refugee programs.
The United States, which has the world’s third-largest population of immigrants from the region, has said it wants to allow more Mexicans to enter the country legally and have the refugee resettlement system reinstated.
