Mexico and Texas: Strategic Partners and Friends

Mexico is more than just the southern neighbor of Texas. With a combine trade of approximately $200 billion dollars each year, Mexico is the lone star state’s most important trading partner in the whole world. Around 700,000 jobs in Texas depend on the relationship with Mexico, mostly thanks to NAFTA, and this does not include the force provided by undocumented immigrants that benefit greatly the state’s economy.

So what is at stake for Texas today? What could happen if Texas does not rise its voice to defend NAFTA and our economic integration starts to collapse? After all, the stability of both sides depend on each other: we do not come from the other side of the moon; we are, historically, strategic partners and friends.
