To coordinate and facilitate work aimed at furthering the goals noted in the Joint Declaration on 21st Century Border Management, the Government of the United States of America and the Government of the United Mexican States established the Twenty-First Century Border Bilateral Executive Steering Committee (ESC) composed of representatives from the appropriate federal government departments and offices. For the United States, this includes representatives from the Departments of State, Homeland Security, Justice, Transportation, Agriculture, Commerce, Interior, Defense, and the Office of the United State Trade Representative, and for Mexico includes representatives from the Secretariats of Foreign Relations, Interior, Finance and Public Credit, Economy, Public Security, Communications and Transportation, Agriculture, and the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic.
Each year, the ESC meets to review the accomplishments of the previous year and jointly approve items for the upcoming year. The documents below contain a progress report for 2013 and the proposed 2013 action items by the ESC for execution by the Corridor Security, Infrastructure, and Secure Flows workgroups.
