Mexico has condemned new guidelines issued by the United States, under which almost all illegal immigrants can be subject to deportation.
The new rules include sending undocumented people to Mexico, even if they are not Mexicans.
But Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray says his country cannot "accept unilateral decisions imposed by one government on another."
...Mr Videgaray said on Wednesday that Mexico would not accept the new rules. "We are not going to accept that because we don't have to and it is not in the interest of Mexico."
"We also have control of our borders and we will exercise it fully," he added.
...Spicer said on Wednesday that the relationship with Mexico was "phenomenal right now".
The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the feelings of discomfort that result from holding two conflicting beliefs.
Roberto Campa, head of the human rights department of Mexico's interior ministry, said the plan to deport non-Mexicans to Mexico was "hostile" and "unacceptable".

Does international law give people the right and freedom to enter into any country they choose to enter into, however they care to enter that country, legal or not? I can't remember hearing about that law but maybe I missed it.

First of all, I don't care what a foreign government cares about our internal rules.
However, I do not believe that we should be sending *all* illegal undocumented immigrant aliens to Mexico. That, sure, I feel the Mexican government can balk about, argue, and not allow all they please.
But, to be perfectly honest, why didn't the Mexican government do something about someone from another country potentially being in Mexico illegally to begin with?
Mexico has no right to say anything about us sending illegal undocumented immigrant aliens of Mexican origin back to Mexico. Their citizens broke United States federal law by coming here illegally.
Mexico, I believe, shares in the fiscal responsibility of sending these people back to their home country if they entered from Mexico and were in Mexico illegally to begin with. I am not saying they should foot the bill completely, or that they should accept these people into their country, rather I am saying they are just as responsible for not upholding their own laws regarding immigration and immigrants.
