Mexico: Migration Talks

Question: Can you give us a readout of the meeting between U.S. and Mexican officials that took place today in Washington?

Answer: Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs, Mary A. Ryan, hosted today's meeting to continue the discussion of issues surrounding migration and border security. Our bilateral migration agenda is an important part of the U.S.-Mexican relationship.

The meeting was characterized by open and useful discussion. The discussions today focused on the border security aspects of our bilateral migration agenda. The events of September 11 highlighted the importance of taking real steps in real time to address border security issues. Continuing cooperation on border security is vital to the safety of both our societies and to ensuring that our common border is a link and not a divider. We want to facilitate the legitimate movement of people and goods.

Assistant Secretary Ryan was joined by officials from the Department of Justice, Department of Labor and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. The Mexican delegation included officials from the Ministry of Foreign Relations and Ministry of Government.
