What Bert Has To Say About El Paso Metro Area

El Paso is a unique American city. Self-sufficient and surprisingly large, the city has a modern downtown, with a commercial district and low skyscrapers, and development spreading mostly to the north and east. Because of its isolation, large industry has never taken root, but the area does have some agriculture, ranching, mining, oil, and “maquiladora” industry powered by low-cost labor from Mexico. Fort Bliss brings a military presence to the economic and social base, and the recent base realignments have helped by locating more facilities and personnel there.
