US Embassy in Mexico
United States of America

On March 8 the group Soame Citlalime of Tetlanohcan, Mexico went to the US embassy in Mexico City to apply for a temporary visitor’s visa to present their original play “La Casa Rosa” as part of their “Families Without Borders” tour, which was sponsored by educational institutions, cultural organizations and theaters in New York and Connecticut.

The play is the result of a year of political organizing by the citizens of this small village and sends a powerful message about confronting the forces at work in their community and the steps we all need to take in finally ending undocumented migration to the United States.

Despite ample documentation of the project and letters of invitation from city officials, community leaders and faculty from several universities, the application was denied for all 30 members of the group without grounds or explanation.

We, the undersigned, call on the United States Embassy in Mexico, to issue to the crew and cast of 'La Casa Rosa' the necessary documentation to enable them to realize their 2010 theatre tour of the United States.
