The Border Patrol says they have been forced to downsize their budget, which means they will need to close the park.
The park draws big crowds from the U.S. and Mexico, where people chat through a chain-link fence separating Imperial Beach and Tijuana.
Customs and Border Patrol issued the following statement to NBC 7 San Diego:
"The automatic budget reductions must be applied to virtually every program, project, and activity that DHS has and will negatively affect the mission readiness and capabilities of the men and women on our front lines.”

Maybe we could afford the park if their citizens weren't coming here illegally and milking the entitlement programs dry.
The US government needs to be downsized everywhere, and this park is a perfect candidate. It is a waste of money and has no basis for existence under the US Constitution.

Do you recall when Vicente Fox was quoted several years ago and after he'd left office regarding new currencies and North America? I can't find it anymore to save my life, but he'd predicted that within years, we'd be begging for a new currency and welcome radical change.
It seemed insane at the time, as it was before the real estate crash and all this started... or maybe JUST after it. Anyway, seems to me it has just about gotten there and he wasn't the only one saying the same general things. Just the most high profile, as I recall.
“What we proposed together, President Bush and myself, it’s ALCA, which is a trade union for all the Americas.” ALCA is the acronym for the Area de Libre Comercio de las Am?ricas, the name of the FTAA in Spanish. King, evidently startled by Fox’s revelation of the currency, asked pointedly, “It’s going to be like the euro dollar (sic), you mean?” “Well, that would be long, long term,” Fox repeated. Fox noted the FTAA plan had been thwarted by Hugo Chavez, the radical socialist president of Venezuela. “Everything was running fluently until Hugo Chavez came,” Fox commented. “He decided to combat the idea and destroy the idea.” Fox explained that he and Bush intended to proceed incrementally, establishing FTAA as an economic agreement first and waiting to create an amero-type currency later – a plan he also suggested was in place for NAFTA itself. “I think the process to go, first step is trading agreement,” Fox said. “And then further on, a new vision, like we are trying to do with NAFTA.” Read more at www.wnd.com...
