Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong (August 5, 1964 in Pachuca, Hidalgo) is a Mexican politician who serves as the Secretary of the Interior in the cabinet of Enrique Peña Nieto. He is affiliated to the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and was Governor of Hidalgo until April 2011. He is of partial Chinese ancestry on his maternal side.
In 2003 Osorio was elected to serve as deputy in the Chamber of Deputies of Mexico hence he served during the LIX Legislature but he left his seat in the congress seeking his party candidacy for Governor of Hidalgo. In 2005 he won the Hidalgo gubernatorial election.
The investigative magazine Proceso has linked him directly with organized crime, specifically Los Zetas. In 2010 Osorio Chong was subject to investigation for his presumed ties with organized crime groups and money laundering.
