Arizona prison system to receive gift of textbooks from Mexico

TUCSON, Ariz. — Mexico’s government is donating more than 1,600
Spanish-language textbooks to the Arizona Department of Corrections.

The department said the textbooks will be distributed to prisons statewide to
assist inmates who are receiving educational instruction in prisons.

Arizona’s state prison population includes thousands of foreign nationals, with
Mexican citizens being the largest group.

Officials scheduled a Thursday presentation at the Tucson prison complex.

The department is being represented by Director Charles Ryan. The Mexican
government is being represented by Roberto Rodriguez Hernandez, the Mexican
consul general in Phoenix.
