The matter is that Union Pacific is expanding into southern New Mexico, the railroad yards will still be in downtown El Paso spewing toxins into the air.

I always said that they should have located to Asarco instead, but Santa Teresa was the next best thing.

I dont think this will take jobs from El Paso but instead will make more El Pasoans go work in southern New Mexico.

Before long the Santa Teresa will become another El Paso suburb and the demographics will change putting all of Dona Anna county as part of the El Paso MSA.

When this happen within the next ten years El Paso's metro population will surge way past the one million marks.

The trains park their cars outside our homes as well. The conductor always has his window closed though, so he doesn't have to breathe the diesel exhaust coming from his own locomotive. When i close my windows and doors of my home, the exhaust still comes inside through the air-conditioner. We can't afford to move, either. I wish they would do something about this.

The noise from the trains, the smoke they emit, and the speed at which they zip down the tracks all irritate me. The even crack my homes foundation and walls and sidewalks. Reroute the trains. I hate the dirty and noisy trains.

How many people have the trains killed recently in El Paso alone? A whole bunch, including the teacher from Tornillo. What in the hec are the trains doing in residential areas anyway? Trains kill people.

People the real winners is Santa Teresa, it has now become the border transportation hub. NMDPS - MTD is building a new port of entry for border trucks there that will also house federal DOT inspectors and railway inspectors. The jobs will go through the roof in Santa Teresa. This is huge for southern NM
I guess we can thank NAFTA for all those manufacturing jobs that went to Mexico for slave labor huh?

It's great isn't it?
