Rep. Cuellar Looks Forward to Working with New Mexican President

Washington, July 2, 2018

Today, Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) released the following statement regarding the Mexican Presidency election results:

“Congratulations to Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on winning the election and becoming the next President of Mexico. Mexico is one of our most important allies and we value our relationship. I look forward to working with the new Mexican Administration on issues that are essential to both countries including NAFTA, security, immigration, and border infrastructure. Mexico should be seen as an ally and not as an enemy as some people see it. The Rio Grande/Rio Bravo River does not divide us, but rather unites us as two countries. This is a critical time for the U.S. and Mexico and I will continue to work to develop our binational cooperation.”
