El Financiero & Excelsior  (both Mexico City)  4/23/09


At a work session of the Office of Mexicans Abroad, Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Relations, Patricia Espinosa Cantellano, said that there is a new relationship between Mexico and the United States and that on that basis the government of Mexico will insist in reaching accords for a global migratory reform. Also, that Mexico has advanced and the proof is the decriminalization of the undocumented persons who cross through Mexico.

She pointed out that the struggle of Mexicans abroad is the struggle of the governments (sic) of Mexico “because we are all just one nation and our identity knows no borders.”   Further, that  from the government’s standpoint  none of the ones who live outside the country have ceased being a Mexican because 75 percent of them were born on Mexican soil and the fourth part, although born outside the country, represents 20 states of the Mexican Republic.

Mexico’s President Calderon spoke at a ceremony for the inauguration of the new “Enlace” (“Link”) program designed to evaluate teachers via exams given to millions of children. He said: “We are not only going to review Spanish and Math as in the past, we’re also going to review Civics and Ethics Formation, which the country so badly needs, let me tell you in all honesty; if there is one thing that Mexico needs it is good citizens, but of course good government, I would say above all good governments. There are no good governments if there are no good citizens.”  “The day we have better citizenry we’re going to have better politics; the day we have better citizens we’re also going to have better politicians.”

He insisted that with Obama there’s hope regarding the Latin Americans’ immigration status. According to official estimates some three million Ecuadorans emigrated in the last few decades, mainly to Spain and the United States. Ecuador’s official population estimate is around 14 million.
