Mexican Relationship

Tuesday, 07 February 2017

Former Mexican Ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, reviews the state of relations between the United States and Mexico. Argues that the relationship is dangerously close to the edge. “Dangerously and sadly — particularly for someone such as myself who has spent a lifetime seeking to deepen and widen U.S.-Mexico ties — the relationship is today on a knife’s edge. Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, “alternative facts” regarding trade with Mexico or the dynamics along our common border along with a toxic anti-Mexican narrative — potentially changing the accepted rules of engagement in U.S. political discourse and public policy toward its southern partner — have seriously damaged perceptions on both sides of the Rio Grande, inflaming passions and propelling jingoism and unhelpful rhetoric.”
