I watched the Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain Far West Texas episode today.
It’s pretty empty country out there. And people eat burritos, speak Spanish, have cattle and work together with Mexicans and Mexico.
Mexico and America need to have a saner relationship. We certainly don’t need a border wall. And people should be able to cross back and forth between the border. So many people have families on both sides now.
And of course most of the southwest was part of Mexico before James Polk’s land grab with the Mexican-American War in 1848.
