Calderón’s rep will review request to suspend LDS missionary visas

The office of Felipe Calderón has acknowledged receipt of a Latino activist’s letter urging Mexico’s president to suspend visas to missionaries until The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints takes a stronger public stance against enforcement-only immigration legislation.

Raul Lopez-Vargas received two letters, both dated Feb. 15.

One sent from Mexico’s national palace and signed by representative Juan Manuel Llera Blanco acknowledges Calderón’s staff received the letter signed by 130 people. It says the letter will be forwarded to the appropriate government official.
