On the day President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Phoenix next week, two dozen Arizona legislators will be leaving on a goodwill mission to Mexico.

The lawmakers are part of a large contingent – more than 70 – that will travel to Mexico City and the state of Guanajuato with a dual purpose: bolster trade between the two neighbors and learn more about the intricacies of their sometimes turbulent, often complicated but ultimately indispensable relationship.

The trip is occurring at a time when Trump’s administration has just begun renegotiating the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.
