Javier Chagoya, the new consul for Mexico in Salt Lake City, wears a lapel pin with the flags of both Mexico and the United States flying together.
It is a symbol for something he seeks to promote.
“We are allies. You don’t have to see us as enemies,” Chagoya says, adding that he knows many U.S. citizens view Mexico with a distrust that he blames on long misunderstandings.
