This transcript includes the November 12, 2003 remarks of Tom Ridge at a press availability with Mexican Minister of Governance Secretary Santiago Creel in which they discuss their Binational Commission meeting. The Binational Commission includes the United States, Canado, and Mexico. "Together, we are working to protect the infrastructure on our borders and secure the flow of goods and people across it, hundreds of thousands of crossings each and every day. We certainly want to improve security, but we also want to do it in a way that we facilitate the legitimate flow of goods and people across our borders. And with more than 2,000 miles of border to cover, that's not an easy task. But it is one toward which I believe we have taken concrete steps and we are making some very real progress."
