Assemblymember Chávez Issues Statement on California-Mexico Trade Mission
Assemblymember Rocky Chávez (R-Oceanside) issued a statement regarding his recent participation in the California-Mexico Trade Mission.
Assemblymember Chávez was part of the delegation of State Legislators joining Governor Jerry Brown on the recent trade mission to Mexico City last week. The delegation met with Mexican government and business leaders.
“The California-Mexico Trade Mission emphasized the strong economic and social relationship we have with Mexico. Matters pertaining to immigration and drugs are not the sole issues the people of our state should be concerned with. If more Californians knew that Mexico was the largest consumer of California exports, or that half a million U.S. born children living in Mexico were unable to attend school, we would see more constructive policies coming out of Sacramento and Washington D.C.”
Rocky J. Chávez is Vice-Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Committee and a Member of the Education Committee. Assemblymember Chávez is a retired Marine Corps Colonel, former City Councilman and former Acting Secretary of the California Department of Veterans Affairs. He represents California’s 76th Assembly District, which includes Camp Pendleton, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside and Vista.
