International Boundary and Water Commissioners

Death of International Boundary and Water Commissioners

We are deeply saddened by the deaths of U.S. Commissioner Carlos Marin and Mexican Commissioner Arturo Herrera of the International Boundary and Water Commission, Executive Director of the Rio Grande Council of Governments Jake Brisbin, Jr. and pilot Matthew Peter Juneau. We extend our condolences and sympathies to their families and loved ones.

The State Department and the International Boundary and Water Commission collaborate closely to improve the quality of life for Americans and Mexicans along our common border. Commissioner Marin was a valuable advisor to the State Department for many years and played a key role on border issues in support of the Department’s foreign policy with Mexico. Commissioners Marin and Herrera were long-time colleagues and friends, and were working to develop a solution to Rio Grande flood conditions when their plane crashed. We will miss their contributions to these worthy efforts.

ENDS
