Ambassador Jacobson’s Remarks at the National Penitentiary Conferenc

Good morning everyone. I am very sorry I cannot be physically present with you today, but I know you are in very good company: Mr. Renato Sales, and Jose Alberto Rodriguez Calderon, the hosts of this conference. Events like these that bring together different actors of the penitentiary system with others of similar interests are excellent opportunities to share information and have productive talks. On behalf of the United States government, I am honored to be part of these conversations and to have the opportunity to work jointly with Mexico in its efforts to improve its penitentiary system.
