    Billionaire Carlos Slim's Foundation To Help Mexican Residents Become U.S. Citizens

    Billionaire Carlos Slim's Foundation To Help Mexican Residents Become U.S. Citizens

    The Carlos Slim Foundation, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim Helú's philanthropic organization, joined forces with the National Autonomous University of Mexico, known as UNAM, and the country’s Commission on Human Rights to help Mexican legal immigrants in the U.S. become citizens, the three organizations announced last month. There are 2.7 million permanent residents from Mexico eligible for U.S. citizenship who haven’t taken that step yet, according to the Pew Center.

    The joint effort comes at a time when the Trump Administration is taking steps to reduce the number of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S., including proposing to build a wall along the border with Mexico. Although legal permanent residents have not been directly affected by Trump's policies, becoming citizens could be beneficial to them.

    At a ceremony in Mexico City, where the organizations signed the agreement on March 14, the Carlos Slim Foundation was represented by Marco Antonio Slim Domit, Slim Helú's second eldest son, who holds several executive positions in the family's businesses.

    Slim Domit said that through Acceso Latino--a web platform launched three years ago to keep Latinos informed about training opportunities and their rights--the Foundation will instruct permanent residents how to apply for citizenship.

    "We are certain that what we're signing will improve the life of many individuals and families," Slim Domit said in a statement.


    UNAM, Latin America's largest university, will train 50 instructors who will give 10 workshops at its satellite branches in San Antonio, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles and Tucson. The workshops seek to attract Mexican legal residents who, despite being eligible for U.S. citizenship, haven't yet applied for it. The Commission on Human Rights will teach migrants, both legal and unauthorized, how to defend their rights.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    How come no one wants to help these people in Mexico? They pour the money into helping illegals stay in the USA rather than creating jobs in Mexico to help Mexico their own country? Their economy depends on the illegals sending US money home usually tax free.

    "Carlos Slim is one of the worlds most important philanthropists and most people have never heard about his humanitarian activities. He owns stock in more than 200 companies that employ more than 200,000 people in Latin America and beyond. He has used his resources to help develop the communities where his businesses are located. In his own country, Mexico, he has personally supported more than 165,000 young people in attending university, paid for numerous surgeries, provided equipment for rural schools and covered surety bonds for 50,000 people who were entitled to their freedom but could not afford. He recently created the Carso Institute for Health, and designed it to provide a new approach to health care in Mexico. He has four billion dollars of investments ready to promote education, health and other great challenges, and has recently announced an additional six billion dollar investment in several programs, including his Telmex Foundation."

    If they get sent home, the money Mexico stops.
