BREAKING: U.S. Ambassador to Mexico to Resign

Roberta Jacobson, the United States Ambassador to Mexico, has announced she will resign in May.

“The New York Times, which first reported Jacobson’s departure, cited analysts saying she’s one of the State Department’s most experienced officials on Latin America, with three decades of experience. The Times reports that the Trump administration has already selected a nominee to replace Jacobson, however, it hasn’t announce the candidate. She was appointed ambassador in 2015 by then-President Obama.”

In her statement announcing her departure, Jacobson said, “It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve my country as ambassador to Mexico. After 31 years of service for the American government, I will leave at the beginning of May in search of other opportunities. I do so knowing that the relationship between Mexico and the U.S. is strong and important, and that the incredible team of our mission in Mexico will continue making sure it stays that way. In this moment, I don’t have information about who will be my successor. I keep Mexico in my soul and in my heart and I will continue doing everything in my power to live up to my words. Together we are stronger!”
