The celebrations for Mexico's Independence continued today for the students of UTEP.
Mexican Consul General Roberto Rodriguez Hernandez led the crowd in the cry for independence.
Students sang the Mexican National Anthem and showed their pride once again.
UTEP student Alfonozo Andre says he enjoys having the late celebration, and that he's more proud than ever.
"I'm really proud of Mexico. As a Mexican, I mean, you can find any Mexican in Mexico living there, everybody's proud. And I'm one of them. I include myself in that crowd," Andre said.
Andre also says now is the time for Mexicans to unite against the violence in his native country.
