A Recommendation: Extending Border Zone to Include All of Arizona

Maricopa County Association of Governments (MAG) Economic Development Committee (EDC) has recommended that the MAG Regional Council approve a resolution to extend the Border Zone in Arizona.

Currently the Border Zone is 75 miles into Arizona from Mexico port of entries (25 miles from the Yuma port).  Mexican nationals can obtain a Border Crossing Card so that they can cross into the U.S. more easily to shop in the Border Zone.

MAG is supporting the resolution to include the entire state in the Border Zone to increase tourism.
