Mexico, Dec 24  -  The Mexican government on Monday reiterated its firm rejection of an imposition by the United States to declare Third Safe Country and receive the Central American migrants who remain on the border in a legal limbo.

Last week, President Donald Trump declared Mexico a safe country that would receive the Central Americans, whom he described as frozen because US immigration authorities did not respond to their asylum requests, and at the same time, Mexico denied that there was an agreement of such nature.

On Thursday, December 20, the business attache of the US Embassy in Mexico sent a communication to the Foreign Ministry referring to a section of an exclusive US immigration act insisting that Mexico adopts that resolution and accepts the stranded migrants at the common border.

Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard declared that the application of the section of the US Immigration and Nationality Act is an internal matter of that country.

He confirmed that the Mexican government will take the pertinent measures in accordance with the legal framework in this regard, and will request US authorities for more information about its proposal to return people with a summons to appear in court in the United States in an orderly and safe manner.
