(LAS CRUCES, N.M.) - Editor's note: A substantial amount of U.S./Mexico border region news is published for our readers, thanks to the efforts of Frontera NorteSur, which is associated with the New Mexico State University Foundation Inc. consistently publishes fresh reports that analyze the extensive issues and achievements of this region, thanks to the efforts of Kent Patterson and his team at Frontera NorteSur. They have made a substantial difference for our readers. Please consider the program's future and the fact that they could use assistance from the online community. Please support this consistent and important source of news and information

Dear FNS Reader,

2010 has been a turbulent and momentous time. Throughout the course of the year, Frontera NorteSur has covered the ongoing war in Ciudad Juarez, the battle over Arizona’s SB 1070 immigration law, the unresolved saga of the femicides, Mexico’s Bicentennial of Independence celebrations and controversies, the expansion of dengue fever across the Americas, the massacre of migrants, the implications of falling tourism and remittance revenues on the Mexican economy, and a whole lot more. With our very limited resources, Frontera NorteSur does its modest part in helping fill the information gap.

Additionally, at a time when the State of New Mexico has delayed commemorations of the upcoming Centennial of Statehood due to financial constraints, Frontera NorteSur has been among the few organizations statewide to examine past, present and future trends shaping the Land of Enchantment.

In the past year, we have published original stories about agricultural history in Dona Ana County, the situation of farmworkers in the state’s border counties and the development of new communities called colonias. We intend to continue reporting on the forces that will shape an important border state in the 21st century.

But we can only do this with your help. In previous years, reader donations assisted us in overcoming budgetary challenges and actually helped to expand this news service to some degree. In 2010, now more than ever, we are counting on you, the reader, to step up to the plate and help us into the new year. We know times are tough for everyone and really appreciate any donations that you can afford. After all, every little bit helps. Donations of $50, $75, $100 or more are especially appreciated.

Any contributions to Frontera NorteSur are tax-deductible.

We also welcome any serious referrals to foundations or big donors who might be able to support this journalistic project. If you know of any such individuals or institutions, please contact Dr. Garcia-Bryce at the e-mail listed below.

Again, thank you so much for your generous support and interest. We know you cannot afford not to be informed about US-Mexico border and related issues. If you would like to support us, please follow the instructions below for making a contribution.
