Whether in sports, politics, food or the arts, the U.S. and Mexico have enriched one another in countless ways.
That’s why AQ has selected its Top 5 Border Ambassadors to highlight those who excel in bringing the two countries closer together. Each honoree does this in their own way: U.S.-Mexico Foundation CEO Rebeca Vargas helps hundreds of DREAMers connect with their roots back in Mexico. Alfredo Corchado brings to life the reality of the border as a writer and reporter for the Dallas Morning News. Our list also includes chef and food writer Pati Jinich, El Paso congressman Beto O’Rourke, and Los Angeles Dodgers’ first-baseman Adrián González.
The personal stories and professional achievements of this AQ Top 5 are a visible testament to the good things that happen when the U.S.-Mexico relationship is allowed to flourish.
