STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with congratulations to newlyweds. Brian Houston and Evelia Reyes held a trans-national marriage. He's American. She's Mexican. She cannot easily visit, though he's trying to get her a green card. So they chose to marry on the border between San Diego and Tijuana. People often come to a fence there to talk through the wire, but authorities occasionally open a gate which lets people touch briefly. And through that gate, the newly married couple embraced. It's MORNING EDITION.
