The Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico condemned U.S. President Trump's proposed border wall in a scathing editorial on Sunday, going so far as to call any Mexicans involved in its construction "traitors."
The editorial urged the Mexican government to punish businesses involved in the wall. Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo warned it would not be in businesses' best interest to participate in the wall, Reuters reports. But critics say that isn't going far enough.
Signing up for a project that is a serious affront to dignity is shooting yourself in the foot.
The editorial, published in archdiocese magazine Desde la fe ("From faith"), argued any investment in the wall was "immoral" and called Trump a "fanatic."
So far, despite U.S.-Mexico tensions growing, some Mexican companies haven't hesitated. The president of Cemex, a leading cement producer, said his company would "gladly" provide the raw materials needed.
