I live in SoCal and drive into TJ quite often and since the tube television market is gone their are lots of presses sitting idle. Machine rates are dirt cheap and quality is high. My company has seen sales increase double digits year over year for the last 3. From Mecicali to Tj it seems to be getting more and more business. Plus, these border areas are not as violent as some of the other cities bordering Texas and in deeper Mexico.

Today, what is seen now and anticipated to grow even more is the "Baja Triangle" of Tijuana, Tecate, and Ensenada. Tijuana has already eclipsed San Diego in size and population, and many fine international corporations have found increased efficiency and lowered costs by moving their plant operations over the border. Cosmopolitan cultural interests have populated these areas, inclusive of arts and restaurants. The tail is now wagging the dog. The triangle is experiencing a robust boom in housing and an expansion of Mexico's middle class, and the expert working of labor, craftsman and manufacturing are filling the new residences with Mexico's guarantee of one mortgage per working family. The violence reported in the Texas areas has calmed over the last 4 years due to amnesty and outreach programs; whereas the San Diego California and Baja North border bi-national business zone should be construed as a safety net for dual nation "partnerships" across many industries, other than concerns in the "drugs" or pharma sector.
