Washington DC — U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) met with Mexico Ambassador Medina Mora today to discuss the concerns over Mexico’s failure to meet the targets for water deliveries required under the 1944 Treaty, which govern water-sharing of the Rio Grande
Senator Cornyn and Ambassador Mora were joined by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Representative Filemon Vela (D-TX 34), in Senator Cornyn’s office in Washington DC, and had a productive conversation about the ways our countries can work together.
