For Immediate Release
Vice Mayor matias rosales participated in the us-mexico binational bridges and border crossings meeting
San Luis, Arizona — The US-Mexico Binational Bridges and Border Crossings meeting hosted by the United States Department of State along, with its Mexican counterpart, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, convenes all the principal, federal and state stockholders from both countries to discuss every port of entry project along the Arizona and California borders with Mexico.

“This is the principal forum where we can present the needs to modernize and improve our ports of entry to the governments of both nations” stated Vice Mayor Rosales.  “During our presentation and the ensuing discussion we discussed the need to address the long southbound delays at San Luis Port of Entry I and the need to permit cars to cross through San Luis Port of Entry II”, added Vice Mayor Rosales.  

During the meeting, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico confirmed the need to expand San Luis Port of Entry II to include cars.  Additionally, the United States General Services Administration (GSA) confirmed that they are conducting a Feasibility Study that, for the first time, will look at San Luis Port of Entry I and II as a single system to make better informed decisions as to where we can get the best return on investment on any improvements to the Ports of Entry. The feasibility study should be completed by the end of March 2017.  In the meantime, GSA is moving forward with the construction of a pedestrian annex to help provide a better border crossing experience for the millions of pedestrians that cross through San Luis Port of Entry I.  “It is important for us to convey the message that the City of San Luis is unique on the entire US-Mexico border region with the large proportion of pedestrian crossers we have every day. Our message is being heard,” stated Mayor Sanchez.  It is expected that the new pedestrian annex should be completed by 2018.

The next meeting of this high level binational protocol group should take place early in 2017.
