EVENT ADVISORY: CAP, Bipartisan Group Launch the U.S.-Mexico Task Force to Examine and Strengthen the U.S.-Mexico Binational Relationship
Washington, D.C. — Preserving and strengthening the U.S.-Mexico relationship is in the best national interest of the United States; it is not a partisan issue. Hence, on Monday, November 6, the Center for American Progress, the McCain Institute for International Leadership, the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute, and the George W. Bush Institute are partnering together to announce the launch of the U.S.-Mexico Task Force. The task force, co-chaired by former Sens. Tom Daschle (D-SD) and Trent Lott (R-MS), is part of CAP’s expanding work seeking to examine and strengthen the United States’ most important and complex relationship—the one with Mexico.
In the coming months, the U.S.-Mexico Task Force will host a series of conversations with bipartisan policy makers on Capitol Hill, state government officials, and stakeholders from both sides of the border to further understand the key dynamics shaping the bilateral relationship. The objective of the U.S.-Mexico Task Force is to encourage interactions with experts from both the United States and Mexico to build a relationship of mutual respect and understanding.
