Summary: Mexico is U.S.’s top-trade partner and one of its most important political and strategic allies. The history of both nations is inherently intertwined, bearing a unique combination of characteristics unseen in other neighbor countries. As of today, the U.S. and Mexico share one the most unequal land border in the world, in terms of GDP per capita, and the busiest one, allowing in more than 300 million people crossings per year. Our goal is to discover this fascinating relationship in all its complexities, debunking cartoonish stereotypes and identifying the full economic and social potential that a partnership between the two nations has to improve the lives of American and Mexican people. We will focus in five policy areas: trade, migration, security, energy and sustainability, and public health.
