For the first time, U.S. border authorities will inspect trucks entering the United States on Mexican soil, working simultaneously with Mexican counterparts.Last month, a group of U.S. and Mexican investors opened an air terminal in San Diego with a bridge that crosses a razor-wire border fence to Tijuana's existing airport, believed to be the only cross-border airport outside the European Union.U.S. authorities plan to inspect U.S.-bound trucks in San Jeronimo, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, near the border cities of Ciudad Juarez and El Paso, Texas.Cargo has long been inspected in the U.S. and in Mexico. Plans for the joint inspection facilities have long been in the works but faced resistance in Mexico over allowing U.S. agents to be armed.
