Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles Under New Leadership

By EGP News

The office of the Mexican General Consulate in Los Angeles on Monday announced that Consul David Figueroa Ortega’s term ended on May 31. Ortega led the consulate since 2011 when he was appointed by then Mexican President Felipe Calderón.

Juan Carlos Mendoza Sánchez is the interim consul. Ortega’s successor will be chosen by President Enrique Peña Nieto, who has elected last summer. A consul is a government representative of a foreign country, who among other official duties, provides assistance with bureaucratic issues to citizens of the consul’s country traveling or living abroad.
