It’s been practically a yr and a half since northbound crossing restrictions went into place on the U.S.-Mexico border, and it doesn’t appear like they’ll be easing this month.
After a telephone assembly with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday, Mexican International Secretary Marcelo Ebrard stated he doesn’t assume a loosening this month is “possible.”
Suggesting in any other case could be “feeding an expectation that we’ve got no foundation to say might be carried out,” he added.
One cause he cited was the surge in coronavirus instances on either side of the border.
He additionally stated that the restrictions could be a subject of his Tuesday afternoon talks with the U.S. Homeland Safety Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. However in the course of the assembly with Harris, Ebrard stated the U.S. dedicated to a different sizable vaccine donation, this time a mixed 8.5 million doses of Moderna and AstraZeneca.
