The article’s a bit old, but…still good info:  using data collected from previous at-border surveys collected by Crossborder Group, this online journal gave us a chance to talk about the positive retail impacts of crossborder shoppers from Mexico that enter the U.S.  Our conservative estimates are that US$25-30 million is spent each day (on average) in U.S. retail stores by Mexican consumers that cross legally at our Ports of Entry, and then return home.  Imagine the potential impact if border waits weren’t so long?
