    Looks like you might know that border even better than me. I used to run every inch (well, mile) of it from Boca Chica Beach (actually offshore there), Los Indios, Las Rusias, Relampago, Hidalgo, RGC, Roma-Los Saenz, Zapata, to Laredo (and 60 miles inland) for several decades. The sights I've seen.

    I once knew the TSC campus very well, was aware of some of the property and enviro issues all along the border (but have lost track, since I don't live there any more), and have kinfolk on both sides of La Frontera.
    There were lots of 'very curious' exceptions made in the layout of that fence, for upscale golf clubs, subdivs, farmers fields (Othal Brand ring a bell?), etc.
    To hell with the poor scraggly ocelots and jaguarundis, etc., gotta protect the moneyed Anglo caudillos.

    and a closeup of the part of the border I know best, firsthand
