Mexico Issues Travel Warning for Arizona Over Law (Update2)
By Jonathan J. Levin and Catherine Dodge


April 27 (Bloomberg) -- Mexicans in Arizona should carry documentation and act carefully after the state passed a law requiring local police to determine the immigration status of anyone suspected of being in the country illegally, Mexicos Foreign Ministry said.

The ministry said the warning is directed toward Mexicans living, studying or planning to travel to the southwestern U.S. state, which shares a border with northern Mexico, according to the e-mailed statement sent today. It comes as members of U.S. President Barack Obamas administration said they have concerns about the new law and may seek to overturn it in court.

There is an adverse political environment for migrant communities and all Mexican visitors, Mexicos ministry said. Its important to act carefully and respect the local laws.

The Arizona law makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. without proper documentation. The state has an estimated 460,000 residents living there illegally, the seventh highest total in the country, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Opponents say it will lead to discrimination and racial profiling by law enforcement authorities. .........(more)
