Mexican President Submitted Proposal Stripping Immunity for U.S. 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 reportedly will require Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents to give all information they collect in Mexico to the Mexican government and will require reports to be submitted by any government officials contacted by the agency to Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department.

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