Fight against Trump's border wall hits home along the Rio Grande

Description

Last year, Congress approved $ 1.6 billion in funding for a portion of the border wall promised by President Trump. For some residents of Mission, a Texas town along the banks of the Rio Grande, the arrival of bulldozers could mean the loss of their land.

  • Long Walk Home: US Citizens Living In Mexico Endure Hours-Long Waits To Cast Votes

    As if dealing with the drama of the US general election wasn't challenging enough, US citizens who live in Mexico--and want to vote--have it even worse. According to Business Insider, those Americans must endure hours-long waits at the border before they reach the ballot box. On Election Day, thousands of US citizens living in Mexico crowded the international bridges to El Paso, Texas, just to cast their vote. Most waited over two hours. The international bridge between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso was also completely full. Even with COVID-related restrictions in place, the line stretched out for nearly a mile. But voters whose lives straddle the border say it's a small price to participate in an election that will have a profound impact on both countries. All this extreme border vigilance, the paranoia, and the hate speech toward us, Latinos, is exactly why we needed to vote today. Joaquín Almanza US Citizen, Juarez resident

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
