Why the Mexican border moves south each weekend

By Raoul Lowery Contreras, Opinion Contributor — 09/10/19 05:30 PM EDT


Unbeknown to most Americans, the U.S. border with Mexico moves south every weekend. Joining U.S. Border Patrol checkpoints just north of the border, units of the Mexican Army, Mexican federal police and members of the new Mexican National Guard man checkpoints on Mexican streets and highways doing what Americans do on the American side.

The border moves south every Friday afternoon, when a giant crush of traffic flows south from Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and the Inland Empire counties of San Bernardino and Riverside to Tijuana and coastal Baja California. Mexicans going home for a weekend and Americans looking for breaks from the hundred-miles-an-hour life of California.

Fifteen hundred miles of Mexican Baja California oceanfront are peppered with ocean front homes owned by Americans who delight in buying beach homes and condominiums for strong dollars at hugely reasonable prices unheard of in California. The border moves north on Sunday afternoons and Monday mornings when those thousands return to the United States.

Several kilometers south of the border, all drivers and cars must make their way north through a Mexican Army checkpoint at a toll plaza of the scenic coast-hugging Mexican Federal Highway 1.

Unless Mexico changed their laws, Americans are not allowed to own property within 100 Km of the shore.  Interesting story, otherwise.  The weekend southward migration of Americans isn't nearly as large at it used to be, because Mexico has gotten much more dangerous to travel around.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Does a Mexican border pay rent? 
“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

Does a Mexican hoarder have room for guests?

   Will a Mexican corder still chop your firewood for cheap?
