On May 19, 2010, the United States and Mexico affirmed the importance of our shared border by issuing a Joint Declaration on 21st Century Border Management. An efficient border that encourages commerce and deters criminal activities is a key component of our bilateral cooperation and the prosperity of the United States and Mexico in the 21st century. Some $1.25 billion in two-way trade and nearly one million people cross our land border each day for legitimate trade and travel.
The day-to-day work under this Joint Declaration is guided by the binational Executive Steering Committee and carried out by the Corridor Security, Secure Flows, and Infrastructure subgroups.
