Mexican Consul General Enrique Hubbard walked into a hornet's nest three years ago, taking command of what many considered the most troubled consulate office in the United States – Dallas.
He faced greedy lawyers, passport scams, allegations of favoritism in real estate transactions and nepotism. And he took action, calling for a passport investigation with assistance from the Foreign Ministry and attorney general from Mexico City.
Or did he?
That question dominates a battle between Hubbard supporters and the Foreign Ministry. Last Wednesday, Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa confirmed that an internal investigation had uncovered irregularities, and that Hubbard would be transferred to an undisclosed post.
