Crossing The Bridge To Laredo

I don't remember how long it used to take us to cross back into Laredo back in the early 80s, but it certainly takes a while now.
That's had an impact on commerce. Les Norton, whose family owns three stores in the downtown Laredo shopping district full of shops that offer “ mayoreo y menudeo” (wholesale and retail) products primarily to Mexican customers who walk across the international bridge, said increased scrutiny makes it harder for shoppers to enter the U.S. and longer lines discourage them.
Sign of the times.
