Treaties Between the U.S. and Mexico on boundary and water

The Treaty of November 23, 1970 resolved all pending boundary differences and provided for maintaining the Rio Grande and the Colorado River as the international boundary.

Protecting the Sacred, Constitutional Right to Vote-President Biden-13/07/2021

My fellow Americans, it requires fair-mindedness; devotion to justice; corny as it sounds, a love of country.

Thomas Jefferson’s First Inaugural Address (1801)

Let us, then, with courage and confidence pursue our own Federal and Republican principles, our attachment to union and representative government. Kindly separated by nature and a wide ocean from the exterminating havoc of one quarter of the globe; too high-minded to endure the degradations of the others; possessing a chosen country, with room enough for our descendants to the thousandth and thousandth generation;
