Mayor John Cook will be heading to Washington D.C. next month to talk about the issues with the border.
Mayor Cook says President Obama arranged for him to meet with the Commissioner for Customs and Border Protection, Alan Bersin. He says this will be the first time he gets face time to talk about one of El Paso's most important issues, our trade industry with Juarez.
Mayor Cook says that most of these issues have gotten bigger because the drug wars have escalated since 2006. He also says that the city might soon be trying out new computer programs to help secure trade between the borders.
