Nuevo Laredo, Tamps. “With the United States, it is better to build bridges than walls; cooperation for development is better” to decrease migration, said Claudia Sheinbaum, presidential candidate of the coalition Let’s Keep Making History, after celebrating the suspension of the Texas law that had been approved by the Supreme Court of that country and “that almost allowed any police officer to stop a person based on their appearance, to ask for their documentation and their deportation”.

“With the United States, good relations, of respect,” she emphasized from this border, the most important, she said. “Here, 15,000 trucks pass through daily.

“Here it is demonstrated every day what the commercial relationship between the United States and Mexico means, which is very important. The United States could not live without what we export; we are their first trading partner,” she asserted.

She reiterated that she will always defend a relationship of equals, “never of submission to the United States, and in defense of Mexican women and men on the other side of the border”.

She reiterated that cooperation for development is better; “it is the way to continue working and in any case to decrease migration. Let there be work, let there be employment, let there be development in places where there is none and that is why they have to migrate.”

The former head of the Mexico City government arrived here from Reynosa. She spent the night there after her first day of this tour, which began yesterday in this state and will continue through Nuevo León and Durango until Sunday.

It was a 247-kilometer journey. Outside the hotel where she stayed last night, this morning there were security vehicles, both from the Army and from the National Guard and state.

After she left Reynosa, the vehicles dispersed.

During the journey along the road known as the riverside, considered one of the most dangerous, the presidential candidate of Morena, PT, and PVEM stopped several times to greet groups of people who were waiting for her.

At the rally in Nuevo Laredo, she continued to be accompanied by candidates for the Chamber of Deputies and Senators of the coalition Let’s Keep Making History, as well as from the PVEM. Among them, former governor Eugenio Hernández.

Sheinbaum said that what President Andrés Manuel López Obrador did must be consolidated. She recalled that in Tamaulipas, in 2019, the social programs represented 4 billion pesos, “now it is 16 billion that the government distributes directly to families,” she asserted.

This afternoon she is heading to Ciénega de Flores, Nuevo León, for another assembly.
