It is in Mexico, the border that GEarth puts in between the USA and Mexico is not very accurate, often off by 1,500+ meters. In this case, it is off by about 1,300 meters.

Oddly enough, I was right next to this spot a few hours ago. Go 200 meters NNW from the junkyard placemark, and I was in that parking lot (which is in the USA).

The attached placemark is on the bridge, anything south of the placemark is in Mexico, anything north is in the USA.
