Mexico’s Presidential Election Results:
What Will it Mean for Mexico, Texas, and the United States?
The Mexican Presidential Election is Sunday, July 1. Leading in the polls is the fiery former mayor of Mexico City, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (whose nickname is “AMLO”). The winner will serve for a single term of six years.
At our July meeting, our speaker will discuss the election results and what they mean not only for Mexico but also for Texas and the United States. For example, how will the new Mexican President handle NAFTA negotiations and trade issues? What will he do about immigration? About the border wall proposed by the Trump Administration? About corruption and violent crime? Join us and learn about what may lie ahead for Mexico and the United States in the wake of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election.
