Mexico City, May 20 (Prensa Latina) President Andrés Manuel López Obrador today again demanded respect and support for Mexicans living in the United States and that they be aware of their qualitative importance for that country.

In his daily morning press conference, this time in the city of Obregón, he reiterated that his government will not allow them to be discriminated against, mistreated and, at the same time, “that the quality of that workforce be recognized, which is among the best in the world and they contribute a lot to the economy of the neighboring country”.

He revealed that they carry out conversations to organize the migratory flow, which also has to do with the work part.

What is important is not only capital and technology for the development of a country, but man because he is the soul of every economy. But apart from that, there is the quantitative aspect, since about 40 million Mexicans live in the United States, he said, and as a comparative data he recalled that Canada has 48 million inhabitants.

He referred to the internal politics of the United States “which is always in the electoral campaign” and repeated that they are not going to allow that circumstance to make them use Mexican migrants to win votes by unleashing questions against them.

We do not accept xenophobia, racism or the idea of ​​believing that if they speak ill of Mexicans they will get more votes, because from here in Mexico we are going to denounce them so that our compatriots there know who is who and why they should not vote for them, and that is what we are seeing now, he reaffirmed.
