Co-Director Alexandra Délano interviewed on Mexican indigenous migration to the US

In an interview to the Mexican newspaper Excélsior, the co-Director Alexandra Délano speaks about the Mexican indigenous migration to the United States.

While the indigenous population make up for a fifth of the Mexican to the US, many of this migrant population do not speak English nor Spanish. Co-Director Délano highlighted that, in face of weak institutional protection, these migrants organize themselves in associations such as the FIOB (Frente Binacional Indígena Oaxaqueño) and Mano a Mano.

For the co-Director Délano, though there are some initiatives such as the Mobile Mexican Consulate’s of some indigenous languages translators, little attention has been given to the issue except for attempts of consular protection.
