On July 1, 2018, the Mexican people elected a new President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador! The next day he spoke by phone with President Trump. Just this past Sunday, July 22nd, he and the White House, together released a copy of the letter López Obrador sent to President Trump as a follow-up.

Here are five key topics from the seven page letter sent by Mexican President-Elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador to President Trump:

  1. “There will be many changes, Mr. President Trump.”

“Immigrants signed their names to our Declaration and helped win our independence. Immigrants helped lay the railroads and build our cities, calloused hand by calloused hand. Immigrants took up arms to preserve our union, to defeat fascism, and to win a Cold War. Immigrants and their descendants helped pioneer new industries and fuel our Information Age, from Google to the iPhone. So the story of immigrants in America isn’t a story of “them,” it’s a story of “us.” It’s who we are. And now, all of you get to write the next chapter.” – President Barack Obama

Memorial Day in United States

“This weekend, folks across the country are opening up the pool, firing up the grill, and taking a well-earned moment to relax. But Memorial Day is more than a three-day weekend. In town squares and national cemeteries, in public services and moments of quiet reflection, we will honor those who loved their country enough to sacrifice their own lives for it.”

– President Obama, Memorial Day 2012 at Arlington National Cemetery

Presidents’ Day was established by the U.S. government in 1885 to honor the birthday date of our first President, George Washington. The official name for the holiday is still “Washington’s Birthday”. Washington’s Birthday is really February 22nd, but this federal holiday is celebrated on the third Monday of February, it extents the holiday weekend!

The Labor Day holiday in United States is celebrated the first Monday in September. Labor Day was really created by the national labor movements to celebrate the American worker and their achievements, both social and economic! Each of us that work every day, immigrant or citizen, this is our celebration! For more information about the history of Labor Day review the Department of Labor’s (DOL) web page, “History of Labor Day“.
