The national leadership of the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) gave its full support to the governor of Michoacán, Silvano Aureoles Conejo, after the Secretary of the Interior, Olga Sánchez Cordero, addressed him a letter of “intimidation” in which censorship, he points out, the position of the state president in a video directed at Michoacanos in the United States to vote for Joe Biden.
In his message, Aureoles Conejo points out to Republican Donald Trump of building walls against Mexicans and encouraging hatred and racism.
Sánchez Cordero warns of a violation of the Constitution, because the state leader meddled in the internal affairs of another country, in an electoral process that does not correspond to him, he said in his letter to the president.
According to the head of internal policy, Aureoles placed the Mexican government in a “very delicate” situation in terms of foreign policy.
The Michoacan replied that Mexico owes respect to those who respect Mexico, and reiterated his support for Biden, with “a call to vote for unity and love, not for hatred and division; give a voice to the dignity of Mexico.” .
In turn, Jesús Zambrano Grijalva argued that the “intimidation” by Sánchez Cordero “obeys an electoral pact that the head of the Mexican Federal Executive maintains with the current head of state of the neighboring country.”
He established that in this situation, “we will not allow any censorship towards our representatives,” and he warned that “this surrendering stance of the federal administration places our country’s foreign policy at the service of the US president.”
Furthermore, “the promptness of this response is surprising and questionable,” especially given the omission of the Ministry of the Interior in the face of direct complaints from different political and social sectors, such as the one that denounces 2020 as the deadliest year against women. women.
