    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -Mexico's president said on Wednesday he was ready to provide coronavirus vaccines to undocumented migrants in the United States, after the governor of the U.S. state of Nebraska said they would likely not get vaccinated due to immigration status.

    "It's a universal right. We would do it," President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told a regular government news conference when asked if Mexico would vaccinate undocumented migrants in the United States, many of which are Mexican nationals.

    He did not elaborate on how his government would execute such a plan, or which migrants would qualify.

    The comments on Tuesday about workers at Nebraska's meat-packing plants by state governor Pete Ricketts, a member of President Donald Trump's Republican party, had provoked criticism from public health and migrant advocates.

    "You're supposed to be a legal resident of the country to be able to be working in those plants, so I do not expect that illegal immigrants will be part of that vaccine with that program," Ricketts told a coronavirus briefing.

    The Washington-based Migration Policy Institute estimates 11% of Nebraska's meat-packing workers - and 10% of the workers nationwide - lack legal immigration status.

    Widespread COVID-19 outbreaks occurred at meat-packing plants in the United States in the spring, helping spread the virus around rural America where plants are concentrated.

    Roberto Velasco, a senior Mexican diplomat for North America, responded to Ricketts on Tuesday night.

    "To deprive undocumented essential workers of #covid19 vaccination goes against basic human rights," he wrote on Twitter, including Ricketts' Twitter handle and citing text from the U.N.'s declaration of human rights.

    Among critics of Ricketts' statement was U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a leader of pro-migrant progressives in the Democratic party of President-elect Joe Biden.

    "Imagine being so racist that you go out of your way to ensure that the people who prepare *your* food are unvaccinated," she wrote on Twitter.

    The question of access to vaccines based on citizenship has become contentious in some parts of the world.

    For instance, rights groups have expressed outrage that Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip face a long wait for vaccines.

    AOC calls Nebraska governor racist for ruling illegal immigrants out of Covid vaccine rollout

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Nebraska governor Pete Ricketts must be "so racist" to go out of his way to ensure people who prepare food go unvaccinated.

    "Imagine being so racist that you go out of your way to ensure that the people who prepare *your* food are unvaccinated," Ms Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

    The Congresswoman made the allegation in response to a clip of the governor outlining the Phase 1B roll out of the state's Covid vaccination distribution program to meat processing facilities.

    Mr Ricketts had been asked by a reporter on Monday if undocumented citizens or illegal immigrants would qualify for the vaccination program as part of the phased distribution at the food processing facilities.

    "Again you're supposed to be a legal resident of the country to be able to be working in those plants so I do not expect that illegal immigrants will be part of the vaccine with that program," Mr Ricketts said.

    "If you're working in the plants you're supposed to be here legally, so to get the vaccination you got to be working here legally to be able to be part of the food processing program so there's not going to be a conflict here," he added.

    A spokesman for Mr Ricketts, Taylor Gage, said proof of citizenship is not required for vaccination in Nebraska and that the Governor was commenting directly in response to a question about meat processing facilities where illegal immigrants are prohibited from working.

    "And therefore will not be receiving the vaccine in that context," Mr Gage said in a tweet.

    "Furthermore, while the federal government is expected to eventually make enough vaccine available for everyone in the country, Nebraska is going to prioritize citizens and legal residents ahead of illegal immigrants."

    The nonprofit Migration Policy Institute estimates 14 per cent of meatpacking workers in Nebraska either entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas.

    Over 30 MILLION illegal aliens that the US taxpayers are now supposed to provide AND pay for their vaccines?

    Taking 30 MILLION vaccines from the American people?

    Hell no! Let the companies who illegally employed them pay for every dime of it and then deport them out of here!



    Even the Mexican President calls them "UNLAWFUL MIGRANTS".

    DEPORT THEM ALL!
