State and local representatives and federal official from Mexico gathered in Tucson yesterday to dedicate the new offices of the Mexican Consulate at 3915 E. Broadway Blvd. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey was joined at the ceremony by Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Claudia Ruiz-Massieu, Sonora Gov. Claudia Pavlovich, Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, and others.
After the celebration, the officials met to discuss relations between the United States and Mexico and the shared economic region. The consulate, which opened last year, also houses the Center for Information and Assistance to Mexicans, a call center that handles everything from inquiries about missing immigrants to passport requirements.
