Rail reopening on Mexican border welcomed news

Ag groups are relieved that U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced it will reopen international rail crossings in Eagle Pass and El Paso, Texas.  CPB says rail operations will resume operations immediately. 

National Corn Growers President Harold Wolle says their organization is very appreciative that the government was responsive to calls to have the border crossings re-opened. Wolle says he hopes the experience serves as a reminder how closing rail crossings can have devastating ramifications for farmers and the economy.
