Gridlock on the Rio Grande
TALK of comprehensive immigration reform is welcome news — especially because it could offer a possible path for citizenship for undocumented immigrants and more visas for highly skilled workers. But the debate’s focus on enforcement is ill-advised and its approach is still too narrow. By emphasizing enforcement, federal resources won’t go where they are truly needed: America’s international ports of entry, where millions of dollars in goods enter and leave the country each day. These ports are overburdened and underfinanced. While billions are spent on walls and drones, the movement of people and goods is choked. Instead of further militarization of our southern border, we need to invest in the movement of people and goods through our land ports. The El Paso area’s five ports of entry handle tremendous traffic: in the 2011 fiscal year, they had 6.8 million pedestrian crossings, 811,000 truck crossings and almost 11 million car crossings, which translated into $80 billion in trade.

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
