The article focuses on the failure of several efforts to stop the flow of pollution in the U.S.-Mexico border fence. Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Mexican President Miguel de la Madrid in 1983 promised to cooperate on solving the cross-border pollution problems under the La Paz agreement. However, after current initiative to do control cross-border pollution failed and had missed the deadline after eight years of operation. Moreover, despite the failure to do so, both San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico are still doing their part to stop the sewage problem.
