Statement by U.S. Ambassador to Mexico on Law Enforcement Actions in Nuevo Laredo

Mexico City, June 27, 2005 – When asked on his reaction to recent actions taken by Mexican law enforcement in Nuevo Laredo, Ambassador Tony Garza said, “I am hopeful that actions such as those taken by Mexican law enforcement last night to free a number of people held by criminal elements in Nuevo Laredo will continue. We join the families of missing Americans to pray that those individuals will be found safe and sound. U.S. consular personnel and law enforcement officials are working diligently with their Mexican counterparts to make that happen.”
