WASHINGTON D.C. — A consistent champion of the U.S.-Mexico partnership, today U.S. Representative Will Hurd reaffirmed his commitment to fostering the relationship with bipartisan legislation. The resolution, introduced alongside Homeland Security Chair Michael McCaul (R-TX) and U.S. Representative Eliot Engel (D-NY), supports the U.S.’ continued commitment to a partnership based on mutual respect and bilateral cooperation on security issues and trade.
“As the Representative of several border communities, and the largest stretch of US-Mexico Border in Congress, I recognize the unique relationship the United States shares with Mexico. I have made it a priority since being elected to foster understanding with my colleagues in Washington and to increase economic opportunity on both sides of the border. I have long said that we should view the border as a middle, not an edge, and I am committed to continuing this work in the years to come,” said Hurd.
“The renegotiation of NAFTA should be an exciting opportunity for both our countries. I will continue to work with my Mexican counterparts to develop mutually beneficial policy that strengthens our economies and keeps our communities safe. I look forward to joining Chairman McCaul and my fellow US-Mexico Interparliamentary Group Members in Mexico City early next month to continue this important dialogue between our two nations.”
