Dear Tony,

I’d like to thank you once more for the help you provided my colleagues and me during our reporting of the proposed Border Wall project, which yesterday received the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting.

Your knowledge, insight and deep historical perspective on South Texas and its connection to Mexico added texture and context to the very emotional issues that the Border Wall project attempted to showcase.

My colleagues and I appreciate the time you spent with us and wish you continued success in the future.
