“BORDER STORIES” FOR LATINA MAGAZINE
July 21, 2011
Every day up to 30,000 people cross the bridge on foot from Mexico into the US. People cross for a variety of reasons including school, work, shopping, entertainment and family get-togethers. Many families in the area have members living in both cities due to immigration issues and therefor must cross the border to see each other. There is also a micro economy of people crossing into the United States to buy inexpensive goods to bring back and sell in Mexico.
