The problem is that the federal government needed a new entry area and the county officials especially the corrupt one jailed and sentenced confiscated a farmer's land and other properties for the bridge to, as you put it, Nowheresville. Now all it will take is the corrupt and slower than hell Mexican government to get off it's collective backsides to get their side done.

What would be good is if the United States government would sponsor and build a roadway from El Paso to Brownsville within a 1/4 mile of the border of course going around the edge of Falcon Lake. Make it six lanes wide with barriers toward the Mexican side and Automatic warning devices every mile that could pick up illegal activity, photograph it and the persons so they could be taken to court. There would of course be access roads at the ports of entry to afford easy on and off for the border patrol agents. It would also be lighted the entire length and powered by solar energy as much as possible.

What a positively awful idea! It makes no sense from start to finish, nor in the middle either. If what you propose makes so much sense, then why not just open up the borders altogether? Cameras are not going to stifle illegal activities and no access roads is meaningless with off-road vehicles prevalent. Why don't you just stick to spouting off about things you are familiar with, like how to boil water and how to calculate 5% of a restaurant check?
