Thanks for this article showing the many layers of a failing system. The US needs labor but has an ever changing policy that makes the only constant it’s inefficiency. Mexico has has a System where the Governemnt responds to the actions of the cartels. Money is being made, and the only thing the vulnerable can do is pay more to suffer less, as they try and escape additional suffering.

The Tijuana Bar you describe sounds like it’s on the edge of the Zona Norte, where you can see the American flag flying over the other side of the Tijuana River, hauntingly. Keep up the meaningful work of giving those poor, decent folks that just want a better life, a voice to be heard.
