WASHINGTON, DC – As Amazon continues evaluating locations for it’s second headquarters, U.S. Representative Will Hurd issued a letter to CEO Jeff Bezos championing the city of El Paso for site selection.

“El Paso is home to a highly skilled, productive and qualified workforce, and a rich history that has been celebrating diversity for centuries…Due to our notoriously friendly people, affordable living, and laid-back lifestyle, it is no surprise that Texas attracts the most out-of-state Americans from every region than any other state,” wrote Hurd. “El Paso’s prime location, on the border of two leading global economies, provides a key access point to North American and world trade,” he continued.
