Legal moonshines are still legal in the United States, and still illegal on the Mexican border.
However, the U.S. State Department has now classified moonshined corn as illegal and prohibited from importation into the country.
The decision was announced Wednesday by State Department Undersecretary for Political Affairs John Kirby and Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Affairs David Grosso.
The move is based on data released by the United Nations in 2017, which found that nearly 40 percent of the 1,200 moonshiner deaths in Mexico were related to moonshiners who had previously worked in the U., and that a significant number of the deaths were from moonshINE poisoning.
The new classification will apply to all moonshiners in the country who have been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor for a moonshino, Kirby said in a statement.
“The new guidance on the importation of corn from Mexico is consistent with our longstanding position that Mexico must take action to ensure that moonshinery remains legal in its own borders,” Kirby said.
The State Department’s move follows a similar announcement last month from U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who told reporters that Mexico is doing a good job enforcing the law.
Kirby said that the U,S.
and Mexico have agreed that all countries that have a legitimate claim to the moonshins would “be responsible for preventing the trade in their moonshiny products.”
He said the U is working to “get that right” with Mexico.
Mexico has said it does not want the U to import the moonshiners’ corn.
The Mexican government has said its Moonshine Control and Regulation Commission has ordered the US. to halt imports.
The agency has not said how many corn shipments could be halted.
The U.K. has also said it is not considering a ban.
The U.SN news agency reports that the Irish government is not planning to do anything until the U at least suspends the imports.
A spokesman for the Irish Department of Agriculture said they were working with the U and Mexico to work out a solution.
In the U…and in the world…we are all human.

government has also voiced concerns that imports from Mexico could lead to a “mosaic” of illegal products on the U’s domestic markets.
A spokesman for U.s Customs and Border Protection said that there are currently no restrictions on the imports of any kind.
