The following “Open Letter” (Click here to read full letter!) to all candidates for Mexico’s Presidency and Congress on the July 1st 2012 election, reflects the framework of the agenda that will be discussed and debated at the Seminar on California-Mexico Policy Issues that the CMSC will host with El SeminarioPermanente de Estudios Chicanos y de Fronteras (SPECHF), as we did jointly in June 2006.

The goal of this year’s seminar is to publish a comprehensive document that will be submitted for consideration to the next President of Mexico, Mexico City’s new Mayor, State Governors and the new Federal and State Legislatures.

The proposed comprehensive policy document will recommend and propose the structure and priorities that the new executive and legislative branches of government need to implement, in response to the needs of over 32 million Mexicans that live outside of Mexico and that equal over 25% of the total Mexican population:

At the same time, please consider signing the following petition that will indicate your support of this initiative, and please request the same from all your contacts, even if you cannot attend the seminar.

“The CMSC’s letter to all Mexican presidential and congressional candidates seeks to promote policies and programs that will respond to the needs of over 32 million Mexican immigrants in the United States, under the new president and legislature to be elected on July 1st 2012.
