Border-Crossing Olympians Unite!


Borders matter less and less. But on both sides of the border, these border crossers provoke concern, anger, inspiration and passion. Mainly, they face the wrath of the nationalists on both sides who think their border crossing is either taking opportunities from citizens or a treason to their "real country." These arguments are made both in Mexico about the "Americans" and in the US about the "Mexicans". These national definitions and tags for people seem outdated and retrograde, especially in Post-Nafta North America. Most of us are in motion all the time. Monterrey is Texas. Houston is Mexico. Michoacan is California. California is Baja. Arizona is Sonora.
