Mexico Edition.

Mexican President López Obrador insisted he would not attend the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles if Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua were not invited and would instead send a delegate. On the eve of the continental gathering, political analysts comment on pressure Biden is facing from center-left Latin American governments and from US politicians from states with powerful Cuban right-wing lobby, the stakes, and the meaning of this confict. A leader of day laborers comments on the plans by community-based organizations to gather in downtown Los Angeles to express the concerns of the essential workers who kept the economy going during the pandemic, and the deportees. In another story, a Mexican elections official talks about the races to watch in Mexico’s gubernatorial elections this weekend, and how Mexicans living abroad can vote in four of these state elections.

Guests: Laura Carlsen, Director, Americas Program, Center for International Policy, Mexico City; Pablo Alvarado, Co-Director, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), Los Angeles, CA; Claudia Zavala Pérez, Electoral Advisor, Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE), Mexico City.
