Random fact: the San Pedro River flows north. From Mexico into Cochise County, AZ near Tombstone. This looks like Nogales, so just a few miles away.

Edit to add: it's not much of a running water source, outside of the monsoon rains in the late summer. Crazy flash floods.

I used to live in a small town called mammoth in AZ where the San Pedro river also ran through the town. I was told by locals that it was the only river in the world that ran up hill other then the Nile. While it was dry on the surface 8 out of 12 months if you just dig a few feet down you had a nice little watering hole with cold water perfect for those hot AZ summer days.

I have a friend who used to live on the border and they were very close with their actual Mexican neighbors… lol

They would have barbecues and parties along the fence and pass food through, help each other out and just hangout like friends… there just so happened to be a national border between them.

The whole hatred and bigotry angle is heavily pushed by the media to stir shit up, but the truth is that humans are more loving and caring in general and will make friends in any situation. The Mexicans didn’t hate the Americans for happening to live on that side of the fence and having more than them, and the Americans didn’t hate the Mexicans for wishing they could have our opportunities and luxuries.

I remember seeing a video years back of my friend buying his neighbors kids a nice slip and slide, and since water was super expensive there he ran his hose through the fence so they could play. He put up a bell that the kids could come and ring and he would turn on the water for them.. it was beautiful to see people be so happy and co existing… makes you angry that such bullshit barriers have to exist in the first place and wonder why our world has to be this way..

Given the opportunity 99% of people would choose to help others and balance the world out a bit if they got the chance to know and experience other people and cultures, but we lock them away behind barriers and scary language until they become “OTHER” and the media makes decent people fearful of regular people who are just in need of a fair shot at life. The Trumps of the world will make sure that people like my friend and his neighbor stay on opposite sides of that fence and would rather put up a gigantic impenetrable wall to stop them from even knowing each other as human beings!

We just need to keep supporting our neighbors no matter what and show the people in power that they aren’t monsters who want to take from us… they’re just people who who were unfairly handicapped by life and just want a fair chance to prosper.

However, U.S. citizens without valid travel documents could be delayed at the port of entry until a CBP officer can determine their admissibility.

Yeah, "Right of Return" is a whole principle of international law. It's not a guarantee as it's an easy thing to attack (IE, Israel restricting the movement of Palestinians, including ones trying to return from outside either country); but for the most part your country should go above and beyond trying to repatriate you if something goes wrong. There's a reason Embassies and consulates exist! And that we still spend so much on having so many diplomatic staff.

I went over to Canada not long after 9/11 at a really odd time.

They eventually let us in, but quizzed us about shit for a good 20 minutes.

I haven't been to Mexico in a while but it used to be if you went late at night nobody even stopped you at the border, you could just drive in. Before 9/11 you could get back in to the US on a driver's license, that was like officially accepted.

This photo is from several years ago and was taken in Nogales, Arizona/Sonora. Before Bill Clinton ordered the building of that ugly scar of a wall, people moved fairly freely between the two sides of the city. There were parades that went from one side to the other, and the two sides even shared a lot of infrastructure such as plumbing.

After the wall was built, the US side of the city started to dry up. A once bustling downtown is full of shuttered businesses. Plumbing issues led to terrible issues on the Sonoran side. Border Control agents regularly harass people to ensure that they’re “legal”. My partner grew up there and has stories of being groped by Border Patrol as a school girl.

What’s happened to this community is a disgrace.

People only do that procedure when it’s the last chance they have to stop having grand mal seizures. Only for severe cases for when medication doesn’t work, as this procedure stops communication between the two parts of the brain. Sure it’s cool you can use your right and left hand separately. But your brain will never be as it once was. You’ll be slow essentially.

The parent comment said firestations are 'essential socialism', which isn't true because a socialist economy can exist entirely independently of welfare services such as firestations. In reality, every developed nation on the planet (which all have mixed economies that lean heavily capitalist except for a few) has government operated firestations, so it's kind of a moot point. I'd also like to point out that 'funded by communities' isn't entirely accurate as 99% of firestations are funded by the state, and the state isn't necessary to have a community. I know that's probably just more confusing, but hopefully that explains why people are disagreeing here.

It is reasonable for countries to have controlled borders and have an idea of who is coming in the country.

We also cannot immediately support millions of Latinos coming across. There has to be preparation and systems in place to ensure they are set up for success,

In the ideal world, yes there would be no borders. We don’t live in the ideal world. There are very dangerous drug cartels and terrorist and stuff that needs to be reasonably monitored

You can support the idea of immigration and immigrants while still wanting organization and control.

Do they send Mexico a bill or is it complimentary?

I mean the Mexican army sent aid to New Orleans after Katrina and didn't send us a bill. It's called being a good neighbor.

Like I mean, technically that fireman is "illegally" in Mexico.. (Look there is always someone to comply and find that little things to play against you)

He'll need to show his passport before getting off the ladder.
