The march was convened by the PAN, following the request of the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) to the Chamber of Deputies to disagrate Cabeza de Vaca.
After the investigation against him became known, the governor assured that the allegations are the product of an orderly political persecution from the National Palace.
The representative asked to hear the accusations to have a defense, and stated that «if there is any crime I have committed, it may be not to have submitted to this federal government.»
