In the summer of 2020, just before FBI agents arrested Jose Huizar at his Boyle Heights home on charges of public corruption, the then-Los Angeles councilmember posted an image of a saint on Instagram.
Santo Niño de Atocha is the big-hatted patron saint of prisoners and the wrongly accused, as well as the Mexican state of Zacatecas, where Huizar was born and where my family is from.
Huizar’s public plea to Mexican Baby Jesus to save him drew scoffs across Los Angeles. Now, he’s at it again.
After a 2½-year silence on Instagram, Huizar uploaded an image of another Catholic saint on Sunday night.
