Reactions to Stepped-Up Border Security in Nogales

Arizona 360 hears from community members and visitors in the city.

When the first strands of concertina wire went up in Nogales in November, city officials worried it would discourage shoppers from Mexico. A study from the University of Arizona Eller College of Management found that in 2007-2008 spending by travelers from Mexico accounted for nearly half of the sales tax generated in Santa Cruz County. Arizona 360 spoke to community members and visitors in Nogales to get their thoughts on added security measures at the border.
