In this paper, it is questioned whether the constitutional identity, beyond what is explicitly expressed by the language in the Constitution, translates into the ideological values sheltered by the Mexican people through a federal pact and the understanding of the fundamentals in the constitutional field. Through this study we conclude that the defense of the constitutional identity is the ad intra and ad extra absolute limit. Ad intra, for the constituted powers and citizens; ad extra, for international organizations, the economic power and the market. In this sense, as long as the constitutional identity is not defended, a relative constitutionalism will be fueled.
