 Oh, the difference a border can make.

While Ciudad Juarez in Mexico is tied up in a drug war that has claimed  10,000 lives in the past five years, its border town, El Paso in the U.S., was ranked the safest place in the country with a population over 500,000 for the third year in a row by CQ Press, which compiles FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports, according to Fox News.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano credited President Obama’s increased border measures for the reduction in crime.

“Whenever people tell me the border is unsafe, I say ‘well, what about El Paso?’”
