These businesses operate along America's southern border crossings

6 days ago by Joshua Fruhlinger in Facts

Today, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation titled, "Presidential Proclamation Addressing Mass Migration Through the Southern Border of the United States". The gist of the document, and of much of his talking points as of late about immigration, is that he hopes to shut down the United States' southern border as a "caravan" of refugees from Central America head north.

Of the cities with border crossings, El Paso, TX hosts the most operating businesses, followed by Nogales, AZ and Calexico, CA.

It's unclear how America's border cities will be affected by the recent focus on the United States' southern borders. Open borders are certainly good for the businesses listed above, but it's unclear how much a complete stop in free movement between the two countries will affect them.
