The timezone listing in Settings->General comes from your own PHP installation. WordPress doesn't maintain this list, as it doesn't have to. It gets it from PHP.

In my test install, America/Mexico City is indeed listed. This is a local install running PHP 5.4.19, and the phpinfo shows the "Olson" Timezone Database Version as 2013.4.

Additionally, as this is part of the core code, a ticket discussing it should be made on the core.trac instead of here. Nevertheless, if you update your version of PHP, you would probably get the updated timezone listings along with it.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
