Wavebreakmedia Ltd/iStock/Thinkstock(MEXICO CITY) — Mexico’s Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu posted a video on Twitter on Wednesday urging Mexican migrants in the US to “stay calm” as Mexico has launched a hotline where victims can report “incidents.”
“Fellow citizens, these are uncertain times. Stay calm. Don’t fall into provocations and don’t let yourself be fooled,” she said, without mentioning Trump by name.
The Mexican Foreign Ministry says it is now taking steps through its embassy and consulates in the United States to help Mexicans “avoid being victims of abuses and fraud.”
The 1-800 hotline will be open 24/7 “to deal with any doubts about immigration measures or report incidents,” the ministry said.

The Mexican ambassador to the United States has reportedly said the government has immigration lawyers ready to help and defend anyone in need.
“You are not alone, we are with you,” the foreign minister said on Wednesday. “We will be closer to you than ever to keep you informed, accompany you and defend you.”
