But it's not drinking water; it's for crops
For decades American tourists were told "don't drink the water" in Mexico. But now we want their water. Texas U.S. Senator John Cornyn is fed up with Mexico in a long running dispute over water Mexico owes the U.S.
"The Mexican government has fallen behind in their deliveries and it's important to our farmers and ranchers, particularly in the Rio Grande Valley, that Mexico deliver the water that it owes the United States."
Senator Cornyn says a 10-year water debt between 1992 and 2002 cost Texas farmers hundreds of millions of dollars.
"Many of our farmers have lost millions of dollars, not only as a result of the shortfall as a result of this treaty, but also as a result of the historic drought we have in our state."
Senator Cornyn sent a letter to an international agency this week hoping it'll apply pressure on Mexico to make good.
