Angry Mexicali officials want the Mexican government to end the import of processed sewage from the United States to fertilize crops. "To allow Americans to dump their human waste on our territory is an insult and a threat to the health of our citizens," Mexicali City Councilman Daniel Rivera Araujo said.
