The Supreme Court of Mexico ruled that state law which considers the ultimate purpose of marriage to be "procreation, and or defines (marriage) as celebrated between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional."  This does not mean however that gay marriage will immediately state in all states.  Any person who is denied the ability to marry based on these circumstances has the right to petition the local court.

Tijuana Airport Bridge

 The long awaited bridge to walk from parking in the US to the Tijuana airport has been built. It is expected that the customs and immigration facilities will open by the end of 2015. The enclosed bridge is 390 feet long and has divided north/south corridors. Ticketed passengers will be able to walk across between the United States and Mexico, avoiding lines at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry.

The bridge was built using private funds and cost an estimated $120-million USD. The developer, Otay Tijuana Venture, LLC, is calling the project “Cross Border Xpress.”  A fee for using the bridge has not been released but previous estimates run as low as $13 USD up to $20 USD, per passenger.
