The Under Secretary for North America, Carlos Pérez Verdía, inaugurated a forum this Thursday on the "cultural flourishing of the Mexican-Chicano community in the United States", where he affirmed the important contributions made by Mexican-Americans to the economic development of North America, despite the anti-immigrant electoral discourse in the country.

“The negative public discourse that has emerged in the context of election races in the United States underestimates and denigrates the important contributions of immigrants and is refutable by looking at everything the Mexican community has given to the country. We are obliged, all of us, to lift our voices and reject all types of expressions of hate, discrimination and intolerance,” he noted.
