Immigration reform has long been a priority for President Fox, who, during his time in office, worked with then-President George W. Bush to negotiate immigration policy. Since leaving office, President Fox continues to emphasize the importance of immigration reform with the goal of building bridges and why America must establish sensible pathways for citizenship for undocumented immigrants. In his speech, President Fox addresses why immigration reform is crucial for not just America and Mexico, but for the global community at large: “Mexico and other nations consider U.S. immigration reform important because we know our citizens will continue to migrate in search of job opportunities and a better quality of life, with freedom and respect for human rights.”

About Keynote Speaker Vicente Fox

When Vicente Fox became President of Mexico in 2000, it represented a milestone in the country’s history; after 72 years of Partido Revolucionario Institucional (Institutional Revolutionary Party) rule; an opposition candidate won the election and practically brought about a regime change. During his six years in government, he notched up significant economic achievements and drove forward a comprehensive development plan for eradicating poverty and creating equal opportunities for all Mexicans.

Before becoming president, Fox had worked at Coca Cola, where he rose to the rank of CEO of the Latin American division and was the youngest chief executive in the company’s history. After leaving the world of business, he began his career in politics, which really took off when he was elected Governer of Guajanato (1991-1999).

He became president following an election campaign that lasted over two years, on a platform of change, and with one of the highest approval ratings in Mexico’s recent history. Once in power, he launched the Oportunidades program, Mexico’s first comprehensive development plan, which he used as a weapon against poverty in the most isolated regions and communities in the country.

The values of generosity, commitment, equal opportunities, a strong attachment to his farming roots (he is the son of a farmer), and his passion for Mexico characterize his public and private life. He set out his political thinking and his vision for the country’s future in his autobiography. Vicente Fox a Los Pinos, published in 2000. In 2007, after leaving office, he published a book about his journey to becoming head of state: La revolucion de la esperanza, (Revolution of Hope), which has been translated into English.

Now, having retired from active politics, he lives on the farm bought by his grandfather over a century ago and works to promote training of leaders with social values through the Centro Fox foundation.

Testimonials

President Fox was incredible a real class act. We had a full house with 4,200 people, plus an overflow room for another 1,200. President Fox had breakfast with Marlene and I to help him prepare, and then made a walk through our exhibit hall before speech time. He was very interested in our work, especially with relation to his own efforts at Centro Fox.
