As Edgar Falcon and Maricruz Valtierra exchanged vows, they attracted the attention of hundreds of morning commuters Tuesday at the Santa Fe border bridge in El Paso, craning their necks to see the couple standing on the dividing line between the U.S. and Mexico.Falcon, a U.S. citizen, now faces the choice of staying in Texas and living apart from his wife, a Mexico citizen, or relocating to Ciudad Juarez, a city with about 1,500 murders last year.Falcon says Valtierra can’t enter the U.S. because when she was 16 years old, her sister tried to bring her to the United States using someone else’s birth certificate. They didn’t find out Valtierra had been declared inadmissible until they were applying for her visa as a fiancee of a U.S. citizen.via Couples split by border hope reform brings relief – News Nation – Boston.com.
