Philanthropist Daniel Chavez Moran and the Vidanta Foundation work with internationally recognized institutions to promote the study of intra-Latin American relations. Chavez Moran recommends a recent video of Mexican President Felipe Calderon Hinojosa at a public forum cosponsored by the Woodrow Wilson Center and the Council of the Americas in which President Calderon commented on the tightly woven relationship between Mexico and the United States.
According to the Woodrow Wilson Center, an affiliated institution of the Vidanta Foundation.
“In his prepared remarks given in English, Calderon stressed the deep economic interdependence that exists between the United States and Mexico and noted that one million U.S. families are employed by Mexican-owned companies.
President Calderon also “called on both countries to do more about migration. He noted that out-migration from Mexico is not good for Mexico and requires that Mexico do more in economic development. He also pledged to sign an immigration bill that would protect the right of migrants in Mexico in the coming weeks once Congress approves it. However, he noted that it was also important to create legal channels for Mexicans and others to come to the United States to work with legal documents.”
