President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) dictated five basic conditions for Hispanics living in the United States to vote for one party or another in next year’s presidential election. Even adding proposals for the general population, such as guaranteeing health and education.
During his Tuesday morning conference from the National Palace, López Obrador was asked about the possibility of Hispanics voting for the Republican Party, especially Donald Trump, despite his anti-immigrant positions, to which he replied that “meaning is absent. Who do you vote for? We need to know who will guarantee.
-Regularization of Mexicans who have worked faithfully in the United States for years
-Resolving the phenomenon of migration by seeking justice for the people of Latin America and the Caribbean
-He will not continue the policy of militarization and construction of the border wall
-Control of weapons to prevent them from entering Mexico
-Joint work to prevent drug trafficking and stop the consumption of fentanyl in the US for legality, justice and humanism
Mexico demands respect for USMCA agreements
The president stated that “if that is not there, then people should not be fooled. This is not a personal matter. Also, there are economic issues if the economic trade agreement continues under the terms established in the previous negotiations. Done right by Trump.
The agreements in the Mexico-United States-Canada Treaty (USMCA) on free trade that López Obrador asked the two parties to respect are Mexico’s decisions to manage its natural resources, especially oil. The same goes for labor rights.
May the US guarantee health, education and scholarships
In addition to the Hispanic population, he stated “I am sure that if there is a definition, many Americans will vote for a plan like this and as an additional recommendation, but that has to do with the United States.” It is argued that a radical step is needed to distinguish between Republicans and Democrats.
Therefore, he suggested that the US government guarantee the right to health as well as allow education for young people and “that scholarships be given to families so that young people can stay for two years, three, five, or as many as they want” as a measure to avoid family disintegration.
AMLO criticized the aspirations of the governor of Texas
Although he asked to wait for these points to be explained, Greg Abbott, the Republican governor of Texas, was publicly criticized for expressing his interest in being his party’s vice presidential candidate. In recent years, he has called for people not to vote for him because of his anti-immigrant measures.
“How can Hispanics vote—surely they can—if Texas owes itself to migrants? “That man has forgotten that Texas belongs to Mexico, and it is full of González and Rodríguez as if Tamaulipas and Nuevo León?” he asked about the possibilities for the Texan governor.
