While the border with Mexico remains open despite President Trump’s threats to close it, it’s now taking significantly longer to cross between the two countries. Lines of vehicles and waiting times have been growing at border crossings in El Paso, San Diego, and elsewhere. The delays are proving costly to businesses that depend on cross-border commerce. 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
