Welcome to Planet Nogales, a site dedicated to the unique character of the cross-border communities of Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora.

The twin cities are also known as "Ambos Nogales," which means "both Nogales." Since their establishment in the late 1800's, the cities have grown in similar and different ways. 

And despite the fact that these twin cities are in different countries and separated by a border fence and federal officials, they share strong historic, cultural and personal bonds.

The greater Nogales area has been called a "third country," where original inhabitants and adventurous Anglo settlers had banded together in defense against Apache raids.  Largely because of the remoteness of the area, these international bonds were then strengthened by cooperative efforts, as interrelationships based on economic and cross-border family ties deepened the sense of uniqueness and community. 

To us, it's that and more - a planet all its own.

In Memoriam

We extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry, 40, who valiantly gave his life in service to his country on Thursday, December 16, 2010.


Agent Terry was part of BORTAC, an elite tactical team that was tracking criminals who had been attacking groups of immigrants near Rio Rico when he was wounded in a firefight with the villains and
succumbed to his wounds.


We honor his courage, service and sacrifice.

Let's Demand that Justice Be Fast and Furious

For the Terry family, and for our society

It appears that government officials and employees encouraged and allowed, and even participated, in the sale and transfer of deadly automatic and semi-automatic weapons into the hands of domestic and international criminals, and terrorists. And that they then tried to cover up the entire operation. 

When an honest agent came forward to report the allegedly illegal actions, those involved with the operation attempted to discredit, demote and ruin him.

Two of the weapons from this government fracaso were found at the scene where agent Terry was killed. Whether or not one of them killed him, they're not saying.


If there is even a scintilla of truth in those charges, this is something that we as citizens cannot forgive or ignore.



We must demand that justice be served, and that everyone involved in the operation  with any hint of knowledge or culpability be charged and tried, starting with obstruction of justice, in addition to illegal arms trafficking, and aiding and abetting crimes committed (which includes those may be committed in the future) with those weapons.

And that includes anyone in the chain of command with knowledge of the program who had the ability to stop the program, but did not.



Because regardless of what they may think, employees of the federal government are not above the law.



That’s our opinion – what do you think? Contact us with your comments.
