Finally a city government that fully understands the economical and financial importance that our neighbors and friends South of the Border play to our regional economy. It’s time to stop pointing out how different we are from them and start working / focusing on what we share in common.

As to their safety, there is nothing to worry about. You have never heard of an America getting shot in Mexico. It just does not happen. Cartels do not kill tourist, they only kills people in their inner circle.

Good luck Mr. Sanders, Mr. Faulconer and Mr. Gloria enjoy the City of Mexico.

Jerry, it was the courts that shot down the Jacobs plan for Plaza de Panama not former Mayor Filner. Please get your story straight for once.
