Even while the central government in Mexico decries efforts within the U.S. to build a southern border fence, one northern Mexico town has decided to build its own border fence to fight crime.

About 70 percent of the residents of the town of San Nicolas de los Garza voted last month to erect a barrier with neighboring Guadalupe, on the outskirts of the city of Monterrey. San Nicolas law enforcement authorities say criminals strike inside their town and flee to Guadalupe, outside of their jurisdiction.

The referendum was non-binding, and city officials are still negotiating about other alternatives to a border fence.
