Enrique Peña Nieto wants to bring marriage equality to Mexico.

The Mexican president proposed Tuesday the legalization of gay marriage, announcing that he has signed several initiatives that would seek to enshrine same-sex marriage in the country’s constitution and its federal civil code.

“Today, on the International Day Against Homophobia, I met the representatives of LGBT groups. I listened to their ideas and proposals,” Peña Nieto posted in Spanish on Twitter. “I reiterated the Mexican government’s commitment to combat all forms of discrimination, including those motivated by sexual preference.”

He continued over a couple of tweets, “These reform initiatives takes up the the Supreme Court’s initiative of non-discrimination … for an inclusive Mexico that recognizes diversity – one of its greatest strengths.”

    Mexico has bigger things to worry about than embracing the gay agenda. Gay marriage doesn’t improve society.

    All you would be doing is keeping the animals quiet. Keeping the queers happy. That’/s right you might just want to run for president again. If Trump is President of the USA you don’t want to be president of Mexico. In a way I would like to see Texas suceed from the Union. We would be our own country and Mexicans will be leaving Texas as there would be a lot leaving for America, not Texas as we don’t want them here. The jobs here are for Texans
