Why wouldn’t a private banking institution not be able to do whatever it chooses & not have a Senator try to tell them what to do.  Hey, maybe closing the border off to drug runners, criminals, human smugglers, and border jumpers might be a good start. HUH Senator. Don’t cry about border banking problems when I cannot see what you have done about the porous and dangerous border. Oh yes, please retire…...

Maybe if Nogales stepped up and created a vibrant economic community that was creative and forward thinking. Get with the times, create unique and attractive business. Yes, Nogales is economically challenged due to border and immigration policy. Yes, last time I went to Nogales, Mexico I was greeted upon reentry into the US with a power tripping thug who said he was a soldier or something, oh, yes, a “soldier without a war” he said. Guess that is why I was treated poorly and made to feel as if this thug was or thought he was in charge of letting me back into my own country. Imagine what it would be like if every time you wanted to do business you had to deal with a thug like that? Go figure. It affects cross border trade, period. All of that aside, and sadly, Nogales, Arizona is one of the most uneventful places on Earth and lacks the amount of creativity it takes to be a successful, thriving community.

well I doubt he qualifies as a thug & he is in charge of letting people into the U.S.  That is his job.
