Snow and Carpio wishes a warm goodbye to our friend Jorge Solchaga, who has been in charge of Protection of Mexican Citizens in the Exterior for the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix for the last seven years. We attended a small reception in Jorge's honor tonight at Avanti Restaurant, hosted by consul general Victor Manuel Trevino Escudero. Jorge has helped thousands of Mexican citizens deal with innumerable difficulties during the last few turbulent years in Arizona. We were impressed that several U.S. government officials, including a representative from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) came to pay respect to Sr. Solchaga, even presenting him a plaque to recognize his professionalism.
We wish Jorge the best as he takes on a new post in the Consulate in Los Angeles. As he said tonight, L.A. might be the largest consulate, but Phoenix is the most important. We will miss you Jorge! Que te vaya bien!
