January 2017 Update
The Center for Latin American and Border Studies has recently undergone some changes, including the retirement of long time editor Kent Paterson.  While we have no plans to shut down the listserve, we do not anticipate much future activity on it in the months ahead and are no longer accepting new subscriptions. It is also important to note that the FNS web page, and the FNS archives, will remain online – and the archives will also be preserved by the NMSU library for safe-keeping.

Mission Statement

Frontera NorteSur provides on-line news coverage and analysis of events taking place in the US-Mexico border region.
