You see it all the time in the movies. Americans traveling outside the county are fleeing danger or persecution. If they can just make it to the U.S. Embassy, they’ll be OK.
Well, there’s a similar place of sanctuary in the heart of Albuquerque for travelers from Mexico.
The Mexican Consulate on Fourth Street half a mile south of I-40 is one of 50 in the United States. It’s a small version of the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C., and its mission is to assist and protect Mexican citizens and boost trade and friendship between the two countries.
