Mexico has a long history of banning certain people from traveling to Canada, but a new measure that would bar foreign visitors from visiting Mexico is likely to hit the streets soon.
Mexico has a history of barring certain people in the country from visiting other countries, but the new measure would bar all Mexicans, including Mexicans who have been living in Canada for a year or more.
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announced in April that he would temporarily ban visitors from certain countries for a few weeks and extend the ban for another month.
The measure has been criticized by Mexico’s civil society groups and human rights activists, who argue it is an attempt to restrict freedoms of speech and expression.
The government has previously barred foreigners from visiting the United States, China and India, but these restrictions have been lifted since President Donald Trump took office in January.
Mexico’s move comes amid a wave of anti-government protests that have killed more than 30 people in recent weeks.
The country has also seen several high-profile attacks on security forces.
