Mexico City, Mexico - October 9, 2013

The first meeting of the day was with Secretaria de Trabajo y Prevension Social (STPS) who we have been working with to tackle the tricky issue of providing oath swearing services in Mexico for a U.S. deposition with Mexican clients who have returned. STPS has shown interest in helping to figure out the oath can be provided in such a way that the testimony provided will be valid under Mexican law as well as in a U.S. court. We are working through a strategy to allow this oath to be administered with STPS’s assistance,  while also looking into a variety of viable options.   
 
Later in the afternoon Jessica and Griselda met with allies from the Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes-Mexico (SJM) a non-profit whose focus is helping vulnerable migrants in transit through Mexico with a variety of programs and services.  Global Worker’s Defenders have been working with SJM and IMUMI to provide educational outreach in various communities in Puebla and Hidalgo, so it was a good opportunity to discuss the results of those visits and look at next steps.  We are excited to partner with SJM and look forward to many more joint projects.
