In an emotional meeting, Vila Dosal interacted with more than 100 Yucatecans that live full time in the United States and who, for various reasons, have not been able to return to their homeland territory. Vila assured that the State Government will continue to work so that more and more civilians can be reunited with their fathers and mothers, whom they have not seen for many years.

Honey, typical clothes, Dutch cheese and traditional sweets were some of the gifts that the Governor personally deliver them. These goods were sent by their parents, mothers, brothers, sisters, cousins and nephews with great affection, so that they keep a part of Yucatan and can share it with your friends and loved ones in the United States.

Also, the Governor heard the main concerns of the countrymen and agreed with them on the importance of implementing activities that promote the Yucatecan culture and traditions, in order to preserve the identity and foster the love of their new generations for the land of their parents and grandparents.
