Tijuana Baja California Norte

Donald asks…

How many miles of border are there between the United States and Mexico?

We’re talking about from the Pacific Coast to the Gulf of Mexico.
Request that the true border line be included not a straight-line.

Tijuana answers:

The international border between Mexico and the United States runs from San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Baja California, in the west to Matamoros, Tamaulipas, and Brownsville, Texas, in the east. It traverses a variety of terrains, ranging from major urban areas to inhospitable deserts. From the border crossing at El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, to the east, it follows the course of the Rio Grande (Río Bravo del Norte) to the Gulf of Mexico; from the same binational conurbation westward to the Pacific Ocean, it crosses vast tracts of the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts, the Colorado River Delta, and the northernmost tip of the Baja California Peninsula.

The border’s total length is 1,951 miles (3,141 km), according to figures given by the IBWC (International Boundary and Water Comission).

Sandy asks…

Politically and Demographically.- How important is the US-Mexico border area for the global economy ?

Tijuana answers:

All the Mexico-US borders represent a significant revenue to our economy. It is the core of our north American economy and the most industrialized and important economic area in the whole world. The Mexico – United States border is the international border between Mexico and the United States. It runs from San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Baja California, in the west to Matamoros, Tamaulipas, and Brownsville, Texas, in the east, and traverses a variety of terrains, ranging from major urban areas to inhospitable deserts. From the Gulf of Mexico it follows the course of the Rio Grande (Río Bravo del Norte) to the border crossing at El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua; westward from that binational conurbation it crosses vast tracts of the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Desert, the Colorado River Delta, westward to the bi-national conurbation of San Diego and Tijuana before reaching the Pacific Ocean. The economic development of the border region on the Mexican side of the border depended largely on its proximity to the United States due to its remoteness from the commercial centers in Mexico.
