    Work crews are scrambling to prevent a pipe carrying millions of gallons of sewage from Mexico into the U.S. from bursting.

    I've seen some weird agreements between nations before, but transporting sewage across national boundaries for treatment is really odd.

    Is this going through a pipe or under the fence?

    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Importing Mexican sewage has been going on for many years as it's been used as furtilizer on all the fruit and veggies we get from them!

    I once recall visiting a village that produced lot of coffee beans. It made one think about health questions as we watched every village dog pee on the drying beans!

    God bless!

    ... why we're pumping sewage from Mexico INTO the US?
    The U.S. "pumps" its waste to other places, every day of the week. The garbage scows of NYC, the second-hand discarded items to the Carribean, and so on.

    Perhaps turnabout will help launch a serious addressing of the larger problem. Doubful, as the "north American union" progresses, since such integration of capacities and capabilities will occur more frequently as it becomes economically viable to do so.

    sorry folks but its agra business . There is a plant about 50 miles from me that processes NYC and other sewage to a nutrient rich solid to be spread on fields. I dont avail my place of it , but it is cheap fertilizer and fits with the " organic " types to boot lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    We have been doing this for years, every since NAFTA more specifically they are called cars, batteries, toys, shirts, shoes, just to name a few.
