This final chapter addresses the issue of synchronization—whether and when the laws of the United States and Mexico are best aligned in areas that induce border crossings. Among the laws discussed are those related to gambling, prostitution, abortion, the death penalty, and the legal drinking age. Regardless of whether all such laws are aligned, the United States and Mexico’s increasingly interconnected economies and cultures suggest that the U.S.-Mexico border is better envisioned as an open door than as a walled battleground.
