Constitutional Reform: Right of political asylum.

Dear clients and friends:

On August 15th of this year it was published, in the Official Gazette of the Federation, an amendment to the second paragraph of the article 11 of the Constitution of the Mexican United States, under which it is stipulated that any person has the right to seek and receive political asylum. Before the reform, the article stated that this right could be requested only by persons pursued for reasons of political order. The reform also provides that the recognition of the refugee status and the granting of political asylum will be conducted in accordance with international agreements.
