This transcript includes the March 4, 2002 remarks of Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City, Mexico. Ridge discusses way the U.S. and Mexico can make their countries safer, stronger, and more prosperous. "Together, we will find better ways to combat international terrorism. More broadly, we will find better ways of protecting the important human and economic interests at the heart of the U.S. - Mexican ties. We have a remarkable demographic relationship and one of the most dynamic and modern trading relationships in the world today. And so much of these hinges on the way we manage the long border that joins our two countries."
