Julian Castro on Immigration

 

 


Support comprehensive immigration reform

Mexican President Felipe Calderon expressed his appreciation to Mayor Julian Castro for San Antonio's pro-Mexico relationship, especially in business investments, in a meeting that lasted nearly an hour Monday evening. Castro declared support for comprehensive immigration reform and listed business investments San Antonio companies have made in Mexico.

Castro said afterward that he cited as examples H-E-B, which operates 36 Mexico stores, and Valero Energy Corp.'s dealings with Mexico's government-owned energy company, Petroleos Mexicanos, or PEMEX. Castro said he told Calderon that Texas has "a better approach to immigration policy than other hard-line states. I said, 'We have a more reasoned approach that can provide a better opportunity for a compromise'" on U.S. immigration reform.
