Amor por Juarez - Valeria Prieto

Soldiers near the frontier

The lead and copper smelter, ASARCO is located five minutes from downtown El Paso
and just across the Rio Grande / Rio Bravo. The people who live near from ASARCO
on both sides of the border are numerous and of low economic resources.

ASARCO operated for over a century (1887-1999) by issuing hundreds of tons of lead, arsenic
and cadmium, which are deposited in the homes, schools and businesses located around.
