NDN/NPI was fortunate enough to participate in the Office of Congressman Silvestre Reyes’ and The University of Texas at El Paso’s (UTEP) eighth annual Border Security Conference, and the Southwest Border Mayors meeting both in El Paso Texas.
While there we were able to sit down with leaders from Mexico and the United States to discuss safety issues in the region, the critical importance of the geo-political relationship between the United States and Mexico, the growing economic power of exports and imports from Mexico, and the need to pass comprehensive immigration reform to foster the legal movement of people into and out of the country.
Below are a list of border leaders featured on the NDN/NPI 21st Century Border YouTube page. Each link below will take you to each individual interview playlist. These playlists consist of the full interviews broken out into several different YouTube videos for a more digestible viewing experience.
