Jesus Seade, Undersecretary for North America of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE), published the list of Mexican consulates in the United States (USA) who resumed face-to-face activities after having suspended them due to the presence of the coronavirus in that country.
Through his official Twitter account, the negotiator of the Trade Agreement between Mexico-United States-Canada (T-MEC), disseminated the information confirmed by the secretariat headed by Marcelo Ebrard Casaubón.
"I share with you the consulates in the USA. They have already resumed face-to-face activities to provide care. Here we will be updating the re-openings ”, he published.
Total, 30 consulates can now receive Mexican nationals to receive advice and security in immigration matters. As well as support for any legal problem before the neighbor to the north.
The list of the Consular Network in the United States of America that joined the on-site activities is:
Consulmex Del Rio
Consulmex Eagle Pass
Consulmex El Paso
Consulmex Kansas City
Consulmex Little Rock
Consulmex Los Angeles
Consulmex Mc Allen
Consulmex New Orleans
Consulmex Saint Paul
Consulmex Salt Lake City
Consulmex San Bernardino
Consulmex San Diego
Consulmex San Jose
It is worth mentioning that the decision to open these consular representations is part of the gradual reincorporation to normal activities prior to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in the United States, the country where the government of Donald trump recognizes a total of 1.64 million accumulated patients and 97,679 deaths related to this disease.
In the US they have already started Phase 4 of the COVID-19 epidemicThis means that gradually, the Republican government of Trump will restart all kinds of social activities such as secondary and school economic activities. However, governments that have representation in that country must emulate this reactivation. In this way, the mexican government contributes to the recovery in the US territory of the social interaction to which they were accustomed.
It should be noted that, until 2019, in the entire territory of the United States there are around 57 million migrants from Latin America and of the total of these, around 63%, about 36 million, are Mexican. In other words, almost 10% of the population of the United States is of Mexican origin. For this reason, the reactivation of consulates in person is very necessary to guarantee their services.
In Mexico, until the last report of the Ministry of Health (SSa) the number of deaths from COVID-19 amounted to 7,394 and positive cases are 68,620. So he made it known José Luis Alomy, director of epidemiology.
Also, during the course of the week, the federal government announced the reincorporation to non-essential activities, which it named “new normal" This strategy proposes a staggered, stratified and conscious start to numerous activities in different regions of Mexico.
On May 13, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that three economic activities will be included in the essential activities recognized in the National Day of Healthy DistanceThese are mining, the automotive sector and construction.
He also explained that there will be a federal dynamic in which the use of the epidemic traffic light will be implemented, which will indicate the epidemic risk in each municipality of the republic to know if it is viable to return to activities. It was also said that the final decision will be made by the entity's governor, not by the federal.
