.- The president of the Bishopsâ Conference of Mexico, Bishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago of Leon called on the countryâs newly elected leaders to help ârestore hope to the Mexican people.â
The prelate said that the transition to new leadership at the local and federal level should be an occasion to ârestore the hope of the Mexican peopleâ and that it would be good idea for the new leaders to receive proper formation in ethics in order to restore credibility to the countryâs political system.
Bishop Rabago also reminded leaders of the urgent need in Mexico to establish peace and justice and to overcome poverty.
He also commented on the decision by the United States to build a fence along a 700-mile stretch of the southern border. âIt is sad and humiliating that they consider us a danger and that they think we are people that need to be detained,â he said.
