#1 Is that what they're calling it now?

I guess we're unmanned in more ways than one now.

#3 So we put a fence up with Canada. Hey, why doesn't "Incompetano" sick her TSA on them. Oh yeah, that maybe would work. I wonder who is pulling her strings.
Oops! that was a duh moment!.

#4 I'm not sure if it really makes a difference anymore. Like the guy says in the article, they can cross anywhere else along the border illegally. It sounds like it would be a convenience to American tourists and campers and a major quality of life issue for the Mex's in the little town. Not sure if they need to spend 2+ million on it. How about a turnstile with a closed channel telephone?

#5 Was there some years back. It's been an unguarded crossing for ages; basically you row across to the town.

Like bigjim sez - I don't think you need a $2 million station.

#7 Does it work both ways? Can I now just wander into the state of Sonora and look for a job?

#8 Sure. I wandered across for a beer. It's in the middle of Nowhere. Then again, that was some 20 years ago, and we didn't have a bunch of folks getting worked up about it.

#9 Does it work both ways? Can I now just wander into the state of Sonora and look for a job?

Yeah. You can look all you want. I guess it depends on what kinda work you're looking for whether you'll find it or not. If you're in the "security" business there might be opportunities.

#10 Just don't ask for any free education, health care, welfare, human rights, property rights, legal rights, etc., etc.

No point in doing that anyway, EU - they haven't got any of that stuff.
