Presidential candidate Xóchitl Gálvez kicked off her work tour of the United States, in the cities of New York and Washington with the main objective of sending a clear message about her vision of Mexico and the difficult situation our country is currently facing.
Xóchitl will have meetings with the editorial boards of major American newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, with specialized magazines that influence opinion leadership, such as The Atlantic and other online media outlets and Hispanic television networks Univision and Telemundo.
Additionally, she will visit the U.S. Congress, invited by the president of the Foreign Relations Committee, where she will meet a group of congressmen, represented on the Democratic side by the highest ranking member of the Democrats, who is Henry Cuellar, and by the president of the Committee of Foreign Affairs.
In that meeting, which will be held at the State Department headquarters, the Mexican candidate will meet with the representatives of different government agencies, such as the Office of International Treaty Negotiation, Homeland Security, the International Cooperation Agency USAIDS, and representatives of the U.S. State Department.
During this meeting, Xochitl will discuss with the different government officials, topics on immigration, organized crime, USMCA compliance and taking advantage of nearshoring.
Additionally, she will have personal meetings with leaders of NGOs that defend the human rights of migrants, specifically Mexican nationals, to join efforts that strengthen the community of Mexicans abroad.
Finally, Xóchitl will hold a visit with the Secretary General of the OAS, Mr. Luis Almagro, so that she can present Mexico’s need for the organization’s observation missions to be present from the early stages of the electoral process. It will not be enough to have observers the week of the election, because the fracture of the organizations in charge of the process can occur at any stage before and after election day.
In that sense, the presidential candidate will deliver a letter to the Organization of American States (OAS), pointing out the vital importance of the international observation work during this electoral year in Mexico.
