Introducing the U.S.-Mexico Task Force

The Wilson Center's Mexico Institute, the Center for American Progress, McCain Institute for International Leadership, and George W. Bush Institute in Dallas are coming together to launch the U.S.-Mexico Task Force, co-chaired by Former Sens. Tom Daschle and Trent Lott, in an effort to examine and strengthen the U.S.-Mexico relationship.

In the coming months, the U.S. Mexico Task Force will be inviting policy makers from Capitol Hill, state governments and stakeholders from both sides of the border to participate in a series of conversations—in Washington, DC and beyond—about the need to preserve and strengthen one of the United States’ most important and complex relationships.
