Currently, the State government is supporting her during this difficult process through the Guanajuato’s Institute of Attention to Migrants and their Families (Instituto Estatal de Atención a los migrantes y sus familias), along with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores, SRE).

Guadalupe Garcia thanked the governor for his support and agreed to keep communication throughout the process.

The governor instructed the Ministry of Finance, Investment and Administration to increase the resources of the Institute of Attention to Migrants; and announced a tour into United States in the coming months to be close to the “Guanajuato’s countrymen” that are still up there.

Next Saturday, María Ciriaca Guadalupe Aguilar Hernández and Juan García Aguilar, relatives of the deported woman, will travel to Nogales, Sonora, accompanied by State Institute of Attention to Migrants personnel.
