Bordertown USA and… the Cubans are coming

Some U.S. border towns have been infiltrated with Mexican drug cartel interests for so long it’s become a way of life. Sunday on Full Measure, we’ll continue our border reporting by visiting one such town. We’ll hear from longtime residents and workers who frequently navigate corrupting influences.

Also, the influx over the Mexican border you probably haven’t heard about: Cubans. More Cubans have flooded the U.S. than any time since the Mariel boatlift in 1980: more than 40,000 in the past year. Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, explains why he thinks it’s unfair that Cubans are given a place ahead of other refugees including instant federal aid and a fast track to legalized status. We’ll also talk to some Cuban refugees who just crossed the Mexican border into the U.S. this week.

    Next time, send the reporter across the line into Agua Prieta in order to get the whole picture. Agua Prieta, population that is now approaching 200,000, is responsible for keeping Douglas on the map, not only because of the illegal universe we live in here, but also because of the horrendous buying power of the Mexicans in the Douglas WalMart.
