He was a Hispanic-Mexican priest, politician, theologian and government representative. His education began at the Academia Palafoxiana; he later received a doctorate in Theology and Biblical Canons at the Pontificial University of Mexico. He was part of the Cádiz Cortes (Parliament), of which he became president. He was elected Government Representative of Tlaxcala in 1810 and had an active participation in favor of the American provinces. In addition to advocating for a better representativeness of the Latin Americans in the Cortes, he supported the indigenous peoples and the castes. He considered that it was necessary to provide the American Indians with legal equality and was in favor of an equitable distribution of positions and charges between Latin Americans and the Spaniards from the Iberian Peninsula. He highlighted the peninsular ignorance of the American lifestyle and advocated the creation of Hispanic American ministries as a way to achieve a better government and, above all, to avoid the incipient independence movements. Subsequently, he took part in the Mexican Independence Movement and became the President of the First Constituent Congress of Mexico in 1822.
