The appointing of the new head of the human rights commission takes place in the Senate, where Morena is the leader, also, we've been reminded that González Pérez didn't meet with the President to present his report. So Jara is getting ahead since this won't be voted until November.

Is this Democrat helping migrants?

She is accused of secretly sending her staff to Mexico so that they can advise those who want to request asylum in the U.S. Those accusing her claim that these actions are taking place in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua. Is she collaborating with Mexican authorities?
