NOTES

Data reflect all Personal vehicles, Buses, Passengers and Pedestrians entering the United States across the U.S.-Mexican border, regardless of nationality.

2009 to 2013 data for train passengers in Texas are not available since train crew are being exchanged at the Texas-Mexico border and thus do not enter the United Sytates.
