Morena leader Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) announced the cancellation of his meeting at the United Nations (UN) to present a document against human rights violations towards migrants by Donald Trump’s administration.

“The human rights commissioner can’t see us since the UN’s offices in New York are closed due to the snow storm,” stated López Obrador. However, he will leave the document with Héctor Vasconcelos — who is part of The National Regeneration Movement’s (Morena) pro-migrant movement — to be presented before the human rights commissioner.

“This is a protest against the persecution of our countrymen by the government of the United States,” said López Obrador. He also stated that the document reached the mandatory 10,000 signatures to be presented as a claim against violations on human rights.

Winter storm Stella and the entailing state of emergency declared in New York also caused Miguel Ángel Mancera to cancel his activities in the city. In addition to attending the C40 Women4Climate conference, Mancera had plans to attend meetings at Bloomberg Associates and the Rockefeller Center prior to the event’s inauguration at Columbia University.

Despite the weather conditions, no further changes have been announced for the Women4Climate agenda, which will gather women leaders from around the world who work in different projects towards mitigating climate change.

According to the Government of Mexico City, Mancera will participate in the event as a speaker along with Washington mayor Muriel Bowser during the conference aimed at sharing experiences and innovative practices towards the reduction of pollution.

Before departing, Mancera stated that this trip will also serve to consolidate initiatives to support migrants in the United States as he expects to meet with New York mayor Bill de Blasio to address this issue.
