Having had a successful meeting with Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s chief of staff in Mexico City, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez feels comfortable in inviting Mexico’s next president to the Rio Grande Valley.
Gonzalez was part of a congressional delegation that visited Mexico and Guatemala. The delegation included U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Congressman Ruben Kihuen of Nevada.
“I would like to invite Andrés Manuel López Obrador to our district. To meet people in our community. I would like that,” Gonzalez, D-McAllen said.
Gonzalez had a media availability with Valley reporters about the trips to Mexico and Guatemala. Both were highly successful, he told the Rio Grande Guardian.
“In Mexico City we met with AMLO’s foreign minister, his NAFTA negotiator and Alfonso Romo, his chief of staff. We were able to talk trade, immigration, and border security,”
