According to this article in the Times past county commissioners have gifted us with another disaster.
From the article:
Construction of the Tornillo port of entry cost at least $133 million. More than $91 million of that amount was paid by the U.S. General Services Administration and Customs and Border Protection.
El Paso County covered remaining costs…
That puts our portion of the bill at $42 million if our math is correct.
Bridge to nowhere
Again, from the Times article:
“CBP” has suspended commercial processing at the Tornillo crossing.
But Maier said since the opening of the cargo facility in early 2016, CBP processed only five formal commercial entries — shipments with a value in excess of $2,500.
We deserve better
