Toxic water flowing from Mexico into the United States is the cause of a different kind of border war.
By the laws of nature, and international treaty, water flows north from Nogales, Sonora, into Nogales, Arizona.
Rain water carries toxins from Mexican sewage and also industrial waste. Roughly 80 factories south of the border produce clothing, metals, plastics, and more. Waste from those plants seeps into the environment, and rains bring it to Arizona.
