The United States/Mexico Border Counties Coalition is a nonpartisan, consensus-based policy and technical forum to address challenges facing county governments located on the United States/Mexico Border. The elected officials from the twenty-four county governments located on the United States/Mexico Border established the Coalition. These county governments face unique challenges in serving their residents. The Coalition recognizes that notwithstanding the differences among the participating counties - some are large, some are small, some are urban and some are rural - there are a number of issues that are common to all Border Counties.



Our Goals

The goals of the United States/Mexico Border Counties Coalition are:

  • Advocate legislation and other policies to provide to Border Counties the fiscal resources to meet the costs associated with being located on the United States/Mexico Border.
  • Initiate advocacy efforts with the U.S. Congress to include the establishment of a United States/Mexico Border Congressional Caucus.
  • Promote improvements in the economy, infrastructure and the other conditions along the United States/Mexico Border.
  • Develop constructive dialogue between U.S. County officials and their Mexican counterparts across the border.
