Pro-life actor and film producer Eduardo Verástegui-famous in Mexico and best known in the U.S. for the film Bella-participated in a White House event for the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative Executive Order created to give greater “educational and economic opportunities” to more than 60 million Hispanic Americans in the US today. The event occurred the day after a meeting between President Trump and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador initiating the new trade deal, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

When called upon to speak, Eduardo first explained that he is a film producer whose mission it is “to make films that hopefully not only will entertain, but hopefully will make a difference in people’s lives, because we know how media influence – influences how people think.”

He then addressed President Trump stating, “Thank you for your leadership in defending the unborn. As you know, Mexicans – the majority of Mexicans support the right to life. And thank you for defending life in America and in Latin America. Without a doubt, you are the best, the greatest pro-life President in the history of the United States. Thank you for that.”

The actor also expressed his thanks to President Trump for the new USMCA which he considered to be “a win-win for Mexico and United States” adding that he hoped that it would “make Mexico, America – America and Mexico great together.”

The devout Catholic presented President Trump with an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe” telling @EWTNNewsNightly on July 14: “I brought the president a beautiful image of Our Lady of Guadalupe because not only is she the icon of the pro-life movement, but at the same time she is the symbol of unity and racial healing.”

Eduardo also expressed concern for every leader “who is fighting every day for the unborn” and reminded everyone “who supports and is pro-life to pray for a pro-life leader”.

PNCI extends its heartfelt thanks to Eduardo for requesting prayers for pro-life leaders who fight for the unborn. It is truly needed and appreciated.
