image for Mexican president proposes stripping immunity from US agents

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador submitted a proposal this week that would remove diplomatic immunity from U.S. agents in Mexico.

“The proposal is that foreign agents will not have any immunity,” says a summary published by the Mexican Senate.

The Associated Press noted that DEA agents are afforded full or limited immunity in most countries.

It’s going to be leaked, it’s going to compromise agents, it’s going to compromise informants,” Vigil said.

This move comes just weeks after former Mexican Defense Minister Salvador Cienfuegos’s corruption case in Los Angeles was dismissed.

His arrest aggravated U.S.-Mexico relations, with Mexican officials saying the incident had damaged trust between the two nations.

After Cienfuegos's case was dismissed, the Mexican government announced plans to no longer allow government officials to be extradited and tried in the U.S. on corruption charges. »
