On Monday evening, a small group of far-right advocates demonstrated in front of the presidential palace demanding that Duda sign the law.
The criticism from Tillerson came hours after Polish President Andrzej Duda signed the measure, which would impose criminal penalties for blaming the Holocaust and other Nazi war crimes on the nation of Poland.
Andrzej Duda said in a televised address the legislation would safeguard Poland's global reputation, but Israel called for amendments, saying the two countries had a "joint responsibility" to preserve the memory of the Holocaust.
Mr Duda said he would send the text to the Constitutional Tribunal to check whether its regulations comply with the Polish constitution.

"Unfortunately, it is not only the nationalists but also the whole Polish society which will have to pay the price, " said Grabowski, who is also a member of the Polish Center for Holocaust Research in Warsaw. Israel says the law would ban true statements about the role that some Poles played in Nazi crimes. Activists say the passage of the bill has encouraged a rise in anti-Semitism.
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said this weekend that "there is not the slightest doubt about who is responsible for the extermination camps, who made them work to kill millions of European Jews: namely the Germans".
President Andrzej Duda said he would also ask Poland's constitutional court to evaluate the bill - leaving open the possibility it could be amended. Nevertheless, Duda already signed the bill into law, and it would take effect within the next two weeks, before the tribunal would be able to issue any clarifications.

"One can not change history, and the Holocaust can not be denied", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement last week. However Poland's government spokeswoman said there would be no such visit.
But he said the point of the law is to prevent the Polish nation as a whole from being wrongly accused of institutionalised participation in the Holocaust.
According to figures from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Nazis also killed at least 1.9 million non-Jewish Polish civilians.
The legislation, which comes at a time of electoral gains for anti-immigrant parties like PiS across Europe, has reopened a painful debate in Poland over the Holocaust.
