Bingaman and Udall Push Bill to Expand Zoning for Mexican Nationals to Travel

Sen. Udall and Sen. Bingaman
From -Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall proposed a bill that would help bring more potential economic activity to cities that include Las Cruces, Deming, and Lordsburg. They want to expand the limit that Mexican nationals with biometric border crossing cards can travel so that the state's largest southern cities can have the same economic benefit as El Paso and other border towns.  "There would be a lot more economic activity."  Mexican nationals with approved border crossing cards, known as laser visas, can currently travel up to 25 miles into the U.S. for 30 days without needing another permit.  Bingaman said he's confident that the border limit will be enforced, even though there's no actual checkpoint between the El Paso area and Las Cruces.  More News New Mexico
