Earlier this week, a project to improve the San Ysidro Port of Entry got a $200 million-plus boost, thanks to a new spending bill passed by Congress.
This project will create jobs, grow our economy and reduce inefficiency — which is why it has been at the top of our personal priority lists, and was rated by the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and SANDAG as the most important project for our region.
We need more like it happening around the country.
Gone are the days when we could think of San Diego as its own economy, separate from our neighbors across the fence. We live in a bi-national mega-region that is increasingly diverse and sophisticated. San Diego’s economic growth will be best served if Tijuana’s economy grows as well, and vice versa.
