Se trata de Vilma Martínez, una reconocida abogada de origen mexicano defensora de los derechos civiles de la comunidad hispana. Para asumir el cargo en reemplazo de Earl Wayne, aún debe esperar la aprobación del Congreso de su país. Según trascendió, no habría inconvenientes del lado argentino para otorgarle el plácet.

La abogada Vilma Martínez, defensora de los derechos civiles de la comunidad hispana en Estados Unidos, podría convertirse en la próxima embajadora en la Argentina, de aprobar el Senado de su país el nombramiento dispuesto por la Casa Blanca.

Según informa el diario Página/12, reemplazará a Earl Anthony Wayne, que ya tiene un nuevo destino diplomático en Afganistán.

Martínez tiene 63 años y un importante curriculum en el campo de los derechos civiles. Se graduó con honores en la carrera de Derecho en Columbia y, muy joven, llevó adelante un caso emblemático –Griggs contra Duke Power Company– que obtuvo un fallo favorable en la Corte Suprema y obligó a la administración Nixon a dictar una ley que contemplara la doctrina de la “acción afirmativa” contra la discriminación.

Luego trabajó en varios comités de derechos humanos y civiles. Fue la primera mujer en integrar la Fundación por la Defensa de los Derechos y la Educación de los Mexicanos Americanos en Estados Unidos (Maldef) y asesora de la Comisión por los Derechos Civiles. Gracias a su labor consiguió que las escuelas públicas norteamericanas aceptaran a los hijos de los inmigrantes ilegales.

Vilma Martínez cumplió un papel activo durante la campaña electoral de Barack Obama y en Washington se la considera una persona de confianza de Hillary Clinton. Como embajadora en Buenos Aires cumplirá un doble debut: será la primera mujer que ocupe la representación diplomática norteamericana en el país y también representará su primer destino diplomático.

En la Cancillería no emitieron opinión a propósito de la designación de Martínez, aunque resaltaron su perfil de defensora de los derechos civiles. Dejaron trascender que del lado argentino no habrá inconvenientes para otorgarle el plácet de estilo. También aseguraron que no había sido una “sorpresa” la designación.
