Mexico Bound | Traveling Light

Thoughts: I plan to leave early tomorrow morning. I wonder if I’ll make it through the border in Nogales; I have nothing to declare at customs, so it should go smoothly. I am keeping my balance. My car needs some bodywork and I heard it can be done well in Mexico. My first stop is Old Kino Bay; I used to have friends there. I’ll keep you posted.

The Fence

The Fence! Are we a civilized country? Species? Do we need to evolve perhaps?

Mexico Border Fence | Immigration | Another Berlin Wall?

imagesWe are building an incredible new fence. Is that the solution?

Mexicans cross the US border illegally in search of work because they don’t earn enough money in their own country to sustain themselves.  I can vouch for that. Is a fence going to stop them? I don’t think so.

We have to address the problem not the symptoms. They need a decent minimum wage.  They need schools and libraries. They don’t need a fence; they need a supportive government. If they would have that they wouldn’t even think about the United States. They have a beautiful country and a deep cultural background.
