Are you gonna take your ferret to the Nogales cemetery?
You do know ferrets are nocturnal, and I only leash-walk my ferret at night.

Not trying to turn this into a political thread, but what if border policies become extremely lax? Would this have a negative effect on Nogales, AZ?

If somebody is looking to retire there, I think that’s an important question to ask.

They even looked thru my meds and I was surprised they didn't confiscate the Tramadol, which you usually need a prescription for, as it's a controlled substance. I've even brought anti-biotics across and no problem there without a prescription. All depends on your custom guard and the color of his/her skin, if you know what I mean. The custom guard I had was Asian!

You only need a passport if you're going more than 16 miles south of the border, or if you're flying into Mexico.

It did take 1 hour and 15 minutes to cross back over. Ugh!
Use the much lesser known Morley Ave exit to cross, instead of Deconcinni.. It is about 200 yards east.. Across the tracks.. Only open during the day. Otherwise, Saturday and Sunday can be a beast getting back.

Plenty of Mexicans come and go everyday.. They have Laser Visas which allow them only in a 100 miles I recall. But even if they became more lax, there would still be a huge federal presence for customs and agriculture inspections. The terrorist scare/threat is still present. Also, realize the illegal crosses are more of a hurry than anyone to get up north.. And if you are in the hills, you rarely see them, it is quite rugged terrain.

Well then, that's a perfect storm for the Nogales Cemetery at night. Enjoy!

If being on the border scares you you shouldn’t retire on the border.

Exactly. Border towns have the highest LEO presence in US cities and rank among the safest.

If I were a developer, with millions to lose, I'd be crazy enough to build a high rise right smack at the Border, in one of those parking lots, on the AZ side.. Who do you think would move in there?

In Tijuana, they have built 4 30-story high rises, on the Mexican side, with a short walk to the Border, part of the New City complex.
