The Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, launched the third generation consular registration plate, which has additional security measures to identify Mexicans residing in the US.
At a press conference, diplomatic authorities launched the new version of the consular license plate, which is used by Mexican immigrants, especially those who are undocumented.
The new registration plate, which will be issued at any of Mexico's 50 consulates in the U.S., will have additional security measures, especially for minors as the new document will include the details of the minor's parents or guardians.
Also, for the first time, this ID will include a choice to opt for indeterminate gender.
In this regard, Ebrard highlighted that this matriculation is the first official document in Mexico that allows leaving blank or marking with an X the sex of the person.
"It is important to recognize this right and not to impose it on people," said Ebrard.
This Wednesday it was also announced that for the first time there will be services in Mexican consulates in Zapotec, Náhuatl, and Otomí.
The Mexican Foreign Minister highlighted that this new service responds to the purpose of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to recognize and protect Mexican languages and those who speak them.
