According to them, the close cooperation has been built by two neighbors over the years, but, USA underpins Mexico’s economic and security interests. And after the first few weeks of the Trump presidency, Mexico is on the verge of losing it. A quick look at the relationship shows that America can’t be first without Mexico.

More than just exchanging goods, Texas and Mexico actually build things together. Big things, valuable things like cars, medical devices and consumer electronics. Mexico is unique among America’s trading partners because Texas workers benefit from both exports to Mexico and imports from Mexico. 40% of the value of finished products US import from Mexico is US content, for China, it’s 4 percent.
