Borderland is a word that you hear a lot in El Paso, a sprawling West Texas city situated at the boundary between Mexico and the United States. The borderland region is symbolically defined by a hotly-contested crossing from El Paso into metropolitan Ciudad Juarez, but in reality, these two cities have been intertwined both culturally and historically throughout the ages.
