The stepped up violence in Juarez is making some people think twice before traveling there.
Many people at the bridge echoed the same message: people are afraid. While some have no choice but to cross into Juarez, others say they've completely stopped.
One visitor who didn't even realize he was at the border and got a little freaked out when he noticed how close he was to the violence.
"I was just walking the streets, it's a Sunday afternoon and I looked and saw the border," said Paul Davis. "I'll have to be honest it did concern me just a bit."
"I don't cross over, I go to meet somebody, meet my sister, bring her over," said Manny Madrid, who still has family in our sister city. He said they are fearing for their safety more than ever.
