A man walks toward the U.S. / Mexico border on the U.S. side in Columbus, New Mexico on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2007. The few miles of new border fence erected in August separating Columbus, New Mexico and Palomas, Mexico, ends inside town for now. But U.S. officials have vowed to complete nearly 400 miles of the fence along the border by the end of next year.  What was a migrant crossing hot spot for the past few years, Palomas is reverting back to its sleepy border town state.
