The impact to Mexico tourism and Maquilla biz should motivate the govnt to send them packing but amlo will inherit this now so I think it will be a good first test to see how pragmatic he will be.

As many know, I am a regular "crosser"; went over and back Monday and Wednesday this week. Monday was the first crossing since surgery 3 weeks ago, and I got concerned when I saw the Military transports and the HumVees and other vehicles at the "tip" of the southbound lanes (Mariposa). As I passed the actual gate at Northbound lanes, there were a dozen CBP officers and vehicles blocking the west lane. When I returned from Nogales Centro, the line was backed up to the end of the barricades. When each lane alternately moved, it moved 10-15 vehicles forward, then sat for 5 minutes. As I reached the border gate, I saw that they were stopping two lanes at a time, and alternating which lane moved, until the US lane filled to the end of the barricades. Made it across in about 20 minutes - I wish it was always like that!


When I crossed Wednesday at 6AM, I could not see what was going on. Went to Hermosillo and back at 5PM to find the CBP agents there, the vehicles still parked to block the left lane, but 4 gates open with only two cars in each lane.


I will be making one or more trips next week and will post again.

Up In Phoenix, watched the local news this morning. They showed the MANY migrants in Tiajuanna getting restless! Several were attempting to climb the wall and drop children over the top causing injuries to some. Apparently, these folks are getting tired of waiting to enter legally.

Looks like things are heating up again at the crossing in TJ.
Hopefully having the military extended into January will help these people to rethink their actions.
The Officials including the Mayor of TJ are growing more concern over the overall maintenance, care, and health issues that are becoming a greater problem for everyone involved.
Yes, this is AMLOS FIRST PRESSING ISSUE! It will be very interesting to see what he will do. Has he made any further public statements?? The Mexican residents are not happy campers! As far as I'm aware no real delays at any of the boarders as of today.
