Consul General responsible for promoting interests of Mexicans along entire California border


SAN DIEGO (Border Report) — Carlos Gonzalez-Gutierrez is responsible for the well-being of all Mexican nationals living north of the border in San Diego and Imperial counties, which span the entire Mexico-California border

Gonzalez has three primary functions: Protect and promote the interests of Mexican nationals within the consulate’s jurisdiction; providing typical consular services such as identification cards, passports and travel documents; and promoting the prestige of Mexico by instilling a better understanding of the living conditions Mexican nationals face in the area.

Gonzalez has held similar positions in Sacramento, California and most recently in Austin, Texas. He said San Diego is quickly growing on him.
