Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador defended his first year in office at a rally in Mexico City's central Plaza de la Constitucion on Sunday.
AMLO, as the president is widely known, promised that «no Mexican citizen» should be forced to leave Mexico because of poverty, marginalisation or insecurity.
«Migration must be optional, and not forced by hunger or violence,» he said.
He... Еще assured that Mexico will continue to develop its relationship with the US, particularly in response to tackling crime, including «human trafficking and the transfer of weapons, illicit drugs, and foreign exchange.»
As attendees celebrated in the square, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets elsewhere in the city to criticise AMLO and his government's policies.
