In an eerie coincidence, the groundbreaking for the Marfa Sector border station occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. The 9/11 Memorial plaque notes: "How tragically ironic that a building dedicated to the safety and security of the United States should begin construction at the exact moment that other buildings, some 2000 miles away, would be destroyed by those enemies of this country who would see us all perish."
