"There is no document ... which states that if you enter the EU you must become an immigrant country...We tolerate the fact that some Member States ... admit migrants .. they should tolerate the fact that we do not wish to do so".

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the candidate expected to win this year's Mexican presidential election:

"Everyone in the world has a human right to enter [the USA]."
