The Senate voted unanimously to grant the former Treasurer of the United States, Rosario Marin, the recognition “Elvia Carrillo Puerto” in its 2016 session.

It highlights her contribution to the empowerment of Mexican women and their struggle for human rights.
In the decision, it is stated that Rosario Marin was the 41st Treasurer of the United States, and as such, became the first official of Mexican origin in this position. She was appointed during the administration of President George W. Bush.
Marin is an example of perseverance and persistence pursuing university studies during night classes, and working as a receptionist and in manufacturing.
Rosario Marin, graduated as a business administrator at the University of California, Los Angeles.
In 1985, with the birth of her son Eric, who was born with Down Syndrome, Rosario decided to conduct advocacy on behalf of families who have members with the condition.
So in 1987 she created the Fuerza group, with the aim of providing advice and support to Hispanic families with children with disabilities.
Rosario Marin was born in Mexico and came to the United States as a 14-year-old without speaking English.
