Is the smoke detector working?

Gabriel Quadri

He’s a profesor at my university, former presidential candidate, and he got into hot water for a very stupid tweet, now an entire state is declaring him as Persona Non Grata.

For those of you who do not speak legalese, it basically means that the state government said Quadri, a Mexican Citizen, is not welcomed there.


Quadri declared that “If Mexico didn’t have to carry around Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Guerrero, we would be a much richer, developed country. Given those states harbor some of the largest minority groups and the most poverty this tweet was obviously not well received. The governor of Oaxaca asked him to apologize, and Quadri chose, instead, to double down and blame all of the people and politicians in the state for the issues the country faces... which is still not cool.

Some chatter started foaming around making him resign as a professor of environmental development at the university.
