"With the Texas Department of Public Safety releasing a travel warning yesterday and a long standing state department travel warning in effect, local businesses that cater to travel to Mexico are suffering as spring breakers are going elsewhere"....

Hmmm...Is anyone surprised? If you are, is it because you have been assured that that our borders are secure, and that no major problems exist on our southern border with Mexico?

Further in the article:

"Local travel agency, Sun Travel, for the first time in its history has no reservations booked to Mexico."

and:

"Instead of suggesting Mexico as a travel destination, travel agents are presenting Puerto Rico to Clients as a safer option."

And for those students who will still proceed to Mexico on their spring break, despite all the warnings, and because they are invulnerable, (at least in their own minds), there is now a website of information just for them, courtesy of our state department. For more info on this website go here:

What does this have to do with El Paso, TX? There is nothing to visit in El Paso, there is nothing to see in El Paso, oh yeah, there is an Island called Chamizal that belongs to both Countries that no one visits; apparently the river (before it was contained, controlled, and withered), the Rio Grande, split into two and no one knew how to claim the territory so they Celebrated it with a building. Ya-Ya!

Actually, the article is showing how El Paso is a "Gateway" to Mexico and that they rely on people to go elsewhere but "through" El Paso to get there. What a joke El Paso, you deserve to be what you are, a suburb of Juarez, Mejico!

I grew up there and I have family there. Will the last American out of El Paso please take down the Flag on your way out!

Kisses!

PS, for those who are going to UTEP and not from El Paso, please find out why the mountain is stained black around the University! Here is a hint; ASARCO They polluted the entire Downtown area with Lead and Arsenic! Nice way to start one's Life Achievements, NOT!

PDF file of ASARCO History and Recent Proposals for Reopening Plant (it failed)

For those not from El Paso, the University is "next door" to the ASARCO plant! Literally it is right there, across the street!
