Hecho en Mexico also served as a fundraiser for Families Belong Together, where Fernandez donated over $100,000 from the tour proceeds to assist immigrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.“The impact of my concerts goes beyond the money, the box office, and the sold-out shows,” he explains. “I have always been a very sensitive person to things that happen, especially if it happens in my country. The important thing is to be able to start something and for people to come together, to educate and invite them to support these causes. I see it as giving my audience a little bit of what they have given me.”

Over 2,000 migrants march out of southern city in MexicoOver 2,000 migrants, mainly Central Americans, began walking out of a city in southern Mexico on Saturday where they have essentially been trapped. Police, immigration agents and National Guard have broken up smaller attempts at similar breakouts earlier this year.

As Mexico ages, public services are not keeping upIn Mexico most think the elderly should be cared for at home, surrounded by their loved ones. But this creates a burden that many middle-aged Mexicans find hard to shoulder Burden? No parent should be a burden to their child/children-It’s the circle of life. And while it may be challenging at times, it’s not a burden- it’s an opportunity to give them what they gave us. I would hope my children would think the same when the time comes for me. Using words such as 'burden' to push individualism; because manipulating an individual is easier than manipulating a group. We grow up with that in mind, a mother or father or both can take care of 3, 5, 7 children, but they can’t take care of them when aged? Of course it depends on different circumstances, but Mexico is so family oriented, I guess is also a cultural thing.
