          0    Under George W. Bush, the United States has not lived up to its historic
        tweets role as a leader in the Western Hemisphere. As president, I will restore
        tweet  that leadership by working to advance the common prosperity and
               security of all of the people of the Americas. That work must begin with
      a renewed strategic partnership with Mexico.Mr. Bush took office vowing to make
      the Americas a top priority. But over the last seven years, the administration’s
      approach to this issue has been clumsy, disinterested and, above all, distracted
      by the war in Iraq. Indeed, relations have not fully recovered since Mexico
      refused to fall in line with President Bush’s rush to war.

      Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon just traveled across the United States but
      didn’t even go to Washington, which isn’t that surprising given how little Mr. Bush
      has done to improve relations.                                                          Categories

      Starting my first year in office, I will convene annual meetings with Mr. Calderon       Select Category
      and the prime minister of Canada. Unlike similar summits under President Bush,
      these will be conducted with a level of transparency that represents the close ties
      among our three countries. We will seek the active and open involvement of              Recent Comments

      It’s also time to develop a bilateral strategy for lifting up our border communities.
      Six and a half million Americans live in cities and towns next to the border, and
      61 million Americans live in the four states that border Mexico. Too often we
      neglect the unique needs of these communities, which are integrated with their                                                                         Page 1 of 3

      sister cities across the border. As president, I will work with state and local
      governments to enhance cross-border partnerships in transportation, law
      enforcement, environmental protection, health care and water usage.

      At a national level, our diplomacy with Mexico must aim to amend NAFTA. I will
      seek enforceable labor and environment standards – not unenforceable side
      agreements that have done little to curb NAFTA’s failures. To reduce illegal
      immigration, we also have to help Mexico develop its own economy, so that more
      Mexicans can live their dreams south of the border. That’s why I’ll increase
      foreign assistance, including expanded micro-financing for businesses in Mexico.

      Finally, we have to recognize the connection between our rhetoric and our
      relations – both with Mexico and within our own borders. We can and should
      have a robust debate about immigration reform, but we should never demonize or
      scapegoat any ethnic group. Already, we have seen an unacceptable spike in
      hate crimes aimed at Latinos across America. This has proven divisive here at
      home, and it risks poisoning our relations with Latin America.

      Our relationship with Mexico should serve as a bridge to greater security and
      prosperity in North America and to better relations with Latin America. But we
      cannot achieve this partnership unless we engage in sustained and focused
      diplomacy, and develop a more effective working relationship with our neighbor to
      the south.
