Mexico has expelled 13 American evangelical preachers and six of their children, reportedly accusing them of violating the country’s laws governing the exercise of religion. A U.S. Embassy spokesman confirmed the expulsion order but gave no details. The national newspaper Excelsior said the ouster was at the request of authorities in Veracruz. By law, only native-born citizens can preach a religion in Mexico, and exceptions are rarely granted to foreigners.
