(Mexican Consulate and Border Patrol)....They have agreed to work together.

Representatives from the Consulate and the El Centro Sector Border Patrol met recently. Their common goal is to stop illegal border crossings. They agreed to work together to do what they could to make people understand the dangers of crossing the border illegally, especially in the desert areas. Crossing the border in the desert areas could be fatal. There is also the possibility of accidents that could seriously injure individuals. The two agencies agreed to work together to analyze all possible preventative measures and create a safer border. Past measures have included posting signs, advertising in the Mexican Media and visiting shelters to discuss the danger face to face with potential illegal border crossers.
