KMSB "Nogales SCC Profiles," Thursday, 3/10/11, 6:55 AM

Chris Ciruli, Ciruli Brothers, LLC., says last fall, the Arizona Dept. of Agriculture indicated it was eliminating produce inspections in Nogales, Sonora, citing safety concerns. Local brokers feared the increased wait time would send truckers to Texas or California. Cirulli says that really hasn’t happened. He says the inspections are taking place on this side of the border and actually provided a few extra jobs for warehouse workers here.
