Whether it’s due to long lines, visa costs or other reasons such as the lingering effects of the economic recession, legal border crossings through Nogales continue to decline, though at a slower pace than last year, according to recently released statistics from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The total number of pedestrians and passengers who crossed the border in Nogales in fiscal year 2012, which ran from Oct. 1, 2011 to Sept. 30, 2012, dropped to 9.2 million from 9.54 million in 2011, a 4-percent drop. However, the decline from 2010 to 2011 was a 15 percent fall from 11.15 million, and the 12.75 million crossings in 2009 dropped by 13 percent in 2010. Read Article
