Veteran Mexican politician in solidarity with migrants

Mexico’s leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is in New York to show solidarity with his fellow countrymen living in the city.

A longstanding critic of the US he claims the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown is a violation of human rights.

Lopez Obrador who has criticised the Mexican government for not being tough enough with the American leader, intends to argue his human rights case before the United Nations.

But the controversial politician has his own critics. He’s accused of having connections with a disgraced Mexican mayor arrested for allegedly ordering the massacre of 43 students by a local drug gang.
