President-elect’s Visit Highlights Importance of U.S.-Mexico Relationship

Nov 28, 2012 | Blog

The U.S.-Mexico relationship is a critically important one, and I was pleased to meet President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto during his visit to Washington yesterday. 

I  hope to visit with him again during his future visits to Washington as well as a trip I would like to make to Mexico in the near future.  I also hope that President Obama will make the U.S.-Mexico relationship a high priority in his second term and that he demonstrate his commitment by visiting Mexico soon and continuing to work on the key issues of mutual interest.

These priorities include strengthening public security by effectively combating transnational criminal organizations, boosting trade opportunities through the Trans-Pacific Partnership, greater energy cooperation, solutions for our broken immigration system, and enhancing educational opportunities that will lead to greater opportunities for our middle classes.
