"At least one"?  How about "half the San Diego market"!

However, the Mexican authorities, COFETEL, have much less interest in
content regulation than the Canadians do.  So long as the stations
identify twice an hour, play the national anthem at midnight, run a
full load of government PSAs (which on the English-language stations
take the form of Mexico tourism advetisements), and air all
Presidential Broadcasts, they don't really care where the programming
comes from or what market is actually being targeted.  (All three
countries do have a requirement for licensees in any service to be
citizens of that country.)
