Monday, November 24, 2008- New numbers show the number of people crossing into Juarez has dropped by the thousands. The numbers show tens of thousands of El Pasoans didn't cross the border last month, compared to how many did a year ago.
This, as the death toll blamed on drug violence in Juarez has surged to around 1,300 murders just this year.
At the Zaragosa bridge about 248,000 cars crossed the border last month. That number is down from almost 270,000 cars the same time last year.
