Mexico has a message for migrants in the US: 'Be calm'


The Mexican government wants its citizens to  "be calm" during these "times of uncertainty."

Earlier this week,the Mexican government laid out its 11-point plan to support the Mexican community living in the United States.

The plan didn't mention Donald Trump by name, but alluded to his xenophobic and anti-immigrant campaign.

Fellow countrymen, these are times of uncertainty. Be calm, don't fall into provocation and don't be fooled. The government of Peña Nieto and the Mexican people are with you.

In  a meeting earlier this year, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and President-elect Trump discussed who would pay for the wall. Peña Nieto assured it wouldn't be Mexico.

Since Trump's win, the Mexican peso has continued to fall. In response, the Mexican central bank announced it would increase a key interest rate as Mexico's economy prepares for a longer slump.

The Foreign Ministry also released a video telling Mexican citizens living in the U.S. "we are with you."
