Episode Summary

A Celebration of the Mexican Democracy
New Directions in US-Mexican Policy with Foreign Minister Dr. Luis Ernesto Derbez, Congressman Moises Felix Dagdug Lutzow and Ambassador Celso Humberto Delgado.For the second year in a row, the World Affairs Council of Northern California hosts policy debates between leading Mexican politicians from the three major competitive political parties: the PRI, the PAN, and the PRD.The January 2006 debates were tightly focused on the July 2nd Presidential election. The 2007 debate broadens to take a harder look at viable policies and actual governance, now that the Mexico's new national leaders have taken office for their 3 or 6 year terms following a controversial 2006 election. The debaters present their policy ideas and solutions to the pressing issues in Mexico today and between the United States and Mexico, such as immigration, amnesty, drugs interdiction and the proposed "wall."The San Francisco debate is the first of five debates to be held in California as part of the "A Celebration of the Mexican Democracy: California debates 2007" debate series held February 26-28, 2007. Sacramento, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Diego will host debates two through five, respectively.moreless
