The article focuses on the housing project of real estate investor Powell Gillenwater in the town of Agua Prieto in Mexico called Vecinos Dignos Sin Fronteras or Dignified Neighbors Without Borders. Gillenwater's aim is in part to stem the flow of illegal immigrants across the border to Arizona. He has set down conditions residents must meet. Children must remain in school and earn a high school diploma, while adults must hold down a job, take courses in health and nutrition, including birth control, and devote 250 hours a year to volunteer work.
