The president and CEO to the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce will attend the inauguration of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador this weekend in Mexico City.
Sanders, a former mayor of San Diego, will take part in the inauguration on Saturday as well as the luncheon, dinner and other celebratory activities during the weekend.
The trip comes as the chamber has expressed concerns about closing the border due to the migrant “caravan” in Tijuana.
The San Ysidro port of entry — the busiest land port in the Western Hemisphere — was closed for more than five hours on Sunday after a group of migrants rushed the border. The closure cost businesses in the area over $5 million.
In April, Sanders led the chamber’s 13th annual bi-national delegation to Mexico City, a mission that includes business, political and civic leaders from both sides of the border.
