Mexico expresses opposition to 2 new US immigration laws

In two separate statements, the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the federal government disapproves of the immigration law that took effect in Florida on July 1 and the human smuggling law that went into force in Kansas on the same day.

The former law imposes enforceable penalties for those employing illegal aliens, and enhances penalties for human smuggling, according to a statement on the website of Governor Ron DeSantis, who signed the legislation in May.

It also prohibits local governments from issuing Identification Cards (ID) to illegal aliens, invalidates ID cards issued to illegal aliens in other states, and requires hospitals to collect and submit data on the costs of providing health care to illegal aliens, among other measures.
