The Mexican consulate is expressing serious concerns about Colorado's tough new immigration laws that bar state services to illegal immigrants.
Juan Marcos Gutierrez-Gonzalez is the consul general based in Denver. He said he's worried that Mexican citizens living in Colorado will be harassed and not get the services they need.
Gutierrez-Gonzalez says Mexico's minister of foreign affairs has sent a letter to Governor Owens to express his concerns.
He says he respects Colorado's right to enforce its owns laws -- but Mexico is asking Owens to make sure the new laws are enforced fairly.
His comments come the day after Owens signed a tough package of immigration laws that could force one-million people receiving state and federal benefits to prove they are legal U-S residents.
