BORDER ECONOMY

The ten border states -- Arizona, Baja California, California, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, New Mexico, Sonora, Tamaulipas, and Texas -- together exercise an economy that ranks third in the world for size.

BORDER WALL

A 2006 law authorized more than 700 miles (1,100 kilometers) of new barriers along the 1,952-mile (3,141 kilometers) border. But construction funding remains uncertain.
