DEL RIO,TX–Carlos Gustavo Obrador Garrido Cuesta, Consul of Mexico in Del Rio commented on the events and changes to happen with the administration of the new president Donald Trump.

"Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto gave a message to the nation in response to the two actions taken by Donald Trump. The first action was about the wall and the second on immigration issues. The president of Mexico ordered the Secretary of Foreign Affairs and the 50 consulates in the United States to reinforce the measures of consular protection. Consulates will work as advocates to defend the rights of migrants. We will provide legal advice provided by attorneys allied with the cause and the NGO organization.

The Mexican government laments and disapproves the construction of a wall, which divides us instead of uniting us. Mexico does not believe in walls, Mexico believes in bridges of understanding, commerce, family ties. Mexico demands respect and dialogue to reach a solution in response to these proposals, we want to continue working on the free trade agreement, and the prosperity of both countries.

It is important that the community does not fall into provocation, they must respect the laws and remain as hard workers as always. We leave at the disposal of our countrymen our telephone numbers, 1-877-632-6678 and 1-855-463-6395" commented the Consular Obrador Garrido.
