Another important thing that was discussed was border crossings, whose long lines have created traffic issues in most of the city.

For his part, Orlando López Acosta spoke about the national issues regarding water issues. During his intervention, referring directly to Secretary Adan Augusto López, he said that Baja California has kept itself as Mexico’s strong arm, working only among Baja Californians, i.e., without federal support.

Baja California Governor Marina del Pilar thanked the assistance that the federal government has regarding border needs, reiterating that she is willing to work alongside the federal government to address them.
