Down Mexico Way

September 5, 2013

As Congress is set to debate border security measures, towns like Eagle Pass and Del Rio, Texas, would feel the biggest impact.

A portion of the border fence in Del Rio ends at private property, which is fenced off by barbed wire. The other side of the fence is still American territory.(Elahe Izadi)

The border fence cuts through a field in Eagle Pass, with the bridge lined up with motorists waiting to enter the U.S. in the background. A Border Patrol agent is parked just inside of the fence.(Elahe Izadi)
