A journalist and researcher on unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP), or UFOs as they are more commonly known, presented the remains of alleged “non-human” entities to lawmakers in Mexico on Tuesday during the country’s first public congressional hearing on the subject.

Jamie Maussan brought two boxes that allegedly contained small, stuffed alien bodies recovered in Peru in 2017. He said carbon-14 dating conducted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico showed the remains to be 700 and 1,800 years old. Each of the characters has only three fingers on each hand and elongated heads, and at least superficially resembles the Hollywood-born character ET.

“This is the first time it (extraterrestrial life) has been depicted in such a form and I think there is clear evidence that we are dealing with non-human specimens that are not related to any other species in our world are,” Maussan said. Lawmakers urged them to address the issue, which he said should not be viewed as “a political issue – it is an issue for humanity.”

He said DNA evidence could prove the samples did not come from that planet, but it was not clear whether such tests had been conducted.

At least one previous claim by Maussan about “non-human” remains allegedly discovered in Peru has been debunked, although the specimens he presented in Mexico City on Tuesday looked different from those he had previously discussed in 2015.

The hearing was about the wording of UAP in the airspace protection law, which if passed would make Mexico the first country to officially recognize the existence of extraterrestrial life on Earth, Reuters news agency said, citing local media.

Maussan, who regularly appears in Mexican media to present his research and reports on UFOs, was joined at the hearing in the lower chamber of the Mexican Congress by a former U.S. Navy pilot who recently made a similar case to U.S. politicians in Washington.

Ryan Graves, executive director of Americans for Safe Aerospace, told Mexican politicians that he founded the group after “recognizing the need for action and responses.”

“We believe UAP represents an urgent priority for both aerospace security and scientific investigations,” he said Tuesday. “Our focus is on improving public education about UAP, reducing stigma, and striving for greater transparency and disclosure.”

In July, Graves, along with David Grusch, a former military intelligence officer turned whistleblower, addressed members of the U.S. House of Representatives and accused the U.S. executive branch of keeping Congress and the American people in the dark about UAPs.

Grusch, who served as an intelligence officer with the U.S. Air Force and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency for 14 years, including as a representative of two Pentagon task forces that investigated UAP, told the House National Security Subcommittee in July that he learned about “a decades-long UAP crash retrieval and reverse engineering program” during his work investigating secret US programs.

The U.S. Department of Defense’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office, which Congress created to investigate such incidents, had investigated about 800 reports of UAP as of May 2023. While military officials said most cases were harmless in origin, many others remained unexplained.

Lawmakers have also suggested that the U.S. military knows more about the objects than it has told Congress.

About a month after the hearing in Washington, the Pentagon announced that the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office had launched a new website to provide declassified information about UAP to the public.

Graves was an F-18 pilot based in Virginia Beach in 2014 when he said his squadron first began detecting unknown objects. He described them as “dark gray or black cubes…within a clear sphere, with the tip or points of the cubes touching the interior of that sphere.”

He said a fellow pilot told him about an incident about 10 miles offshore in which an object 5 to 15 feet in diameter flew between two F-18s and came within 50 feet of the plane. He said the U.S. Navy did not acknowledge the incident at the time nor had any opportunity to report the incident.

UAP encounters, Graves told U.S. lawmakers in July, are “not rare or isolated.”

“We are left with thoughts, concerns and a plan to continue talking about it,” Mexican lawmaker Sergio Gutierrez concluded at Tuesday’s hearing, according to Reuters. “Let us hope that this is the first of several events and that there will be discussions within the legislature about whether or not proposals to change the laws need to be made.”
