The Mexican Senate announced a resolution to end bilateral cooperation with the United States against cartels and immigration issues after President Trump sent the National Guard to reinforce the southern border.

The resolution was unanimously passed and was forwarded to the White House, U.S. Congress, and Mexico’s Foreign Relations Officer, according to Mexican news outlet El Universal.

“Despite everything at stake in the relationship between our countries, the way in which President Trump has behaved is, for the Mexican people, unacceptable and intolerable,” the document stated.

The resolution demands that President Trump respect the citizen of Mexico, and added that the Senate “condemns the unfounded and offensive expressions about Mexico and the treatment that is needed for a relationship between neighboring countries and allies.”

Other elements of the resolution dismiss attempts to “militarize the border with Mexico” and considered the tactic to be offensive, Breitbart Texas reports.

In the third section of the resolution, the Senate requests that Mexico cease any binational cooperation with the U.S. in dealing with immigration concerns and fighting transnational crime (cartels) until the U.S. president “acts with civility and respect.”
