Mexico’s foreign ministry has reported that they requested another month-long extension on land-crossing restrictions at the U.S./Mexico border.
The restrictions, first implemented last March, would be in place until October 21.
On September 21st it will be exactly 6 months (180) days that President Donald J. Trump ordered through the USCBP Department to close down international crossings for non-essential travelers.
This in turn has significantly impacted businesses in the community and across the border.
The City of Eagle Pass has been negatively impacted significantly by the restrictionary measures. The City is losing a significant amount of money due to decreases in crossings. It is also affecting the revenue they receive from Sale Taxes.
