MEXICO CITY — As a result of the large American immigrant population, Mexico has active groups of Democrats and Republicans. And both had something to say after Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol.

Both Democrats and Republicans in Mexico condemned the violence during the Washington riot.

Larry Rubin from the Republican Party in Mexico says that the full weight of the law must be applied to whoever breaks in with violence or dismisses the police.

Rubin says the Republican Party will always tout law and order. 

In a public statement, the Democrats Abroad in Mexico say the attack on the Capitol was an attempted coup against the elected government.

Democrats Abroad say they support the right of pro-Trump protesters to express their views, but those who took over the Capitol should be treated as terrorists. They say racial injustice is favoring them.

In Mexico, more than a million people are officially identified as American immigrants.
