An original copyrighted photograph. Although an effort was begun in the 1930s to create a United States-Mexico International Peace Park in the area, joining Big Bend National Park with the Maderas del Carmen Protected Area in Coahuila, from May of 2002 until just recently, the border crossing within Big Bend National Park to Boquillas had been closed by order of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. By October 2006, only 19 families, totaling about 90-100 remained in Boquillas. The rest had been forced to move away by the closure of the tourist crossing to Big Bend National Park. These postcards, and proceeds from their sale will be donated to Boquillas del Carmen to help the families impacted by the aftermath of the closing, and recent opening of this informal border crossing.
