The downtown El paso on a Monday. Most of El Paso's downtown shops are $1 dollar shops catering to Mexicans with trinkets and junk. Items such as blue-jeans cost 3X less on the US side. Most El Paso residents live outside the city center. <br />

An irrigation canal that runs water southeast to Texas farms is all that remains of the Rio Bravo,/Rio Grande. The dried out riverbed marks the US/ Mexican border. There is virtually no border marker as the canal and its fences are the only barrier to slow down illegal immigrants.
