Legislators in Mexico City are asking the federal government to ban Donald Trump from entering the country, citing the GOP presidential hopeful’s repeated anti-Mexican comments.
The proposal passed unanimously on Wednesday, according to Deputy José Manuel Delgadillo of the conservative National Action Party. He described the document, known as a “point of agreement,” as a largely symbolic recommendation to the federal government that the local legislature lacked the ability to enforce.
But he told The WorldPost that Mexico City legislators felt the need to prod President Enrique Peña Nieto to confront Trump, whom they view as a hyper-nationalist who has kindled anti-Mexican resentment by describing Mexicans in broad terms as “rapists” and calling for the construction of a wall across the length of the U.S.-Mexico border.
