Mexico Issues Birth Certificates in the U.S. to Facilitate Integration

LOS ANGELES – The government of Mexico started issuing birth certificates at the consulates of the United States to make applying for a job, issuing official documents or regularizing the migration status of their citizens easier.

Foreign Secretary of Mexico Jose Antonio Meade presided over the issue of the first birth certificate in the United States, which took place at the consulate of Santa Ana in Los Angeles.

With this measure, Mexico takes a step forward in the regularization of the immigration status of more than half of the 11 million Mexicans who live in the United States.

The birth certificate is an essential document to prove identity, and this turn of events could open many doors for Mexicans to exercise their rights and access all kinds of services.

It is “relevant progress” that allows Mexicans to do other paperwork, “such as passports, enrollment, driving licenses or receiving any benefits that could be available,” Meade said.
