Most of the contentious debate on U.S.-Mexico border crossings focuses on northbound crossings, but this chapter urges consideration of reverse traffic from the United States into Mexico as detailed historically and at present in this study. The chapter begins the articulation of a comprehensive border policy for southbound crossings, particularly for weapons trafficking to drug cartels and for U.S. corporate entries, suggesting how Mexico might better encourage a shift in the U.S. presence and investments away from the borderland maquiladoras and beach tourist havens, and into the terrain devastated by NAFTA and other economic factors.
