Linda Sánchez Applauds Confirmation of Roberta Jacobson as Ambassador to Mexico
Washington, DC – Representative Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and a member of the Ways and Means Committee, today released the following statement on the Senate confirmation of Roberta Jacobson to be the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico:
“I’m relieved the Senate has finally acted to confirm Roberta Jacobson to be our ambassador to Mexico. There was never any justification for holding up the nomination of such a qualified candidate. Sadly, this drawn out 10-month process was purely politically motivated.
“Mexico is one of our most important regional and economic partners, and maintaining our close relationship is crucial to the United States’ long-term success. I am confident Roberta Jacobson will do a terrific job representing the interests of the United States in Mexico.”
